Approximately 2.5 million Australians are estimated to be at high risk of having a heart attack or stroke in the next five years.1 For over half of these people, it will be their first cardiovascular disease (CVD) event.1 While these statistics are worrying, they also highlight the life-changing opportunity that primary health care teams have in driving the prevention of CVD.
