Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hazard ratios for the associations between social deprivation and initial presentation of 12 cardiovascular diseases. [ Time Frame: Followed for the duration of general practice registration between January 1997 and March 2010, an expected average of 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Associations studied:

    • overall
    • by sex
    • by age group
    • in high risk groups (smokers, hypertensive disease, obese, diabetic, depression)
    • before and after the introduction of the Quality and Outcomes Framework in England

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Lifetime cumulative incidence per quintile of social deprivation [ Time Frame: Followed for the duration of general practice registration between January 1997 and March 2010, an expected average of 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Heterogeneity in associations across 12 cardiovascular diseases using the Tau-squared statistic and I-square statistics. [ Time Frame: Followed for the duration of general practice registration between January 1997 and March 2010, an expected average of 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 1937360
Study Start Date: January 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Detailed Description:
This study is part of the CALIBER (Cardiovascular disease research using linked bespoke studies and electronic records) programme funded over 5 years from the NIHR and Wellcome Trust. The central theme of the CALIBER research is linkage of the Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP) with primary care (GPRD) and other resources. The overarching aim of CALIBER is to better understand the aetiology and prognosis of specific coronary phenotypes across a range of causal domains, particularly where electronic records provide a contribution beyond traditional studies. CALIBER has received both Ethics approval (ref 09/H0810/16) and ECC approval (ref ECC 2-06(b)/2009 CALIBER dataset).
