Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, and stroke is a leading cause of disability. The rapidly ageing population means that the burden of cardiovascular disease is increasing: there are not only more people with established disease, but also a larger number of people at risk of developing cardiovascular problems.

The 10-minute consultation: cardiovascular risk is a concise pocket guide that outlines the increasing prevalence of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and therefore the need for community-based primary care clinicians (general practitioners, nurses and pharmacists) to correctly identify and manage them. It is packed full of clinical information and practical advice on how to carry out the necessary tests, examinations and investigations within the standard '10-minute' framework. The handbook is structured in a format that reflects a patient's progress through prevention, assessment, investigation, management and follow up, with index tabs and drug reference tables that offer a wealth of prescribing information at your fingertips. This edition is also enhanced by an appendix of cardiovascular risk prediction charts endorsed by the Joint British Societies, including HEART UK, and used by healthcare professionals to calculate the level of risk and target interventions.

The clinician's manual is designed to be used in the clinic and for studying, containing targeted guidance on all aspects of the primary care clinician's role. Written by experienced key opinion leaders, the book supports everyday patient care and improved outcomes.
