Clinical updates in management of cardiovascular risk (4/4)

10' education - June 12, 2018 - Prof. Frank Visseren, MD - University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands - Online CME

Using data from large randomized clinical trials and from various cohorts, risk and treatment effects in individual patients can be predicted. Now even lifetime risk and lifetime treatment benefit can be predicted in terms of vascular disease-free life years gained.
