  • and to evaluate the impact of patients' exposure to a medical information leaflet on patients' cardiovascular risk perception.

Cardiovascular Risk

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Level of Concordance Between Patients Perception and Physicians Evaluation of Cardiovascular Risk

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cardiovascular risk perceived by patients (before reading the Medical Information Leaflet) [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
  • Cardiovascular risk assessed by physicians [ Time Frame: Baseline ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Cardiovascular risks perceived by patients before and after reading the Medical Information Leaflet [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
  • Actual cardiovascular risk calculated using SCORE [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
  • Characteristics of patients whose self-evaluation of their CVR is concordant with their actual CVR [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
  • Characteristics of patients whose self-evaluation of their CVR is discordant with their actual CVR [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
  • Risk factors considered by patients in self-assessing their CVR [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
