Project Description

Cardiovascular diseases are the most expensive group of diseases in Australia. With Australia?s ageing (& increasingly overweight) population, the burden of cardiovascular disease and associated chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes will be further magnified. This research uses innovative statistical modelling techniques and brings together the most comprehensive and up to date Australian data to allow a detailed analysis of the future risk of cardiovascular disease for Australians. This project will also undertake economic evaluation of disease management strategies which are specific to Australia?s health system framework.
