NICOR: National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research


NICOR and JBS3 statement

1 April 2014

The third iteration of the Joint British Societies' Consensus Recommendations for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease (JBS3) offers physicians and healthcare providers tools for the risk estimation and management of patients with cardiovascular disease based on risk over lifetime as well as short-term risk.

These recommendations were released 26 March 2014.

NICOR are ideally placed to assess the impact of the JBS3 calculator on the UK population. Our expertise in linking datasets will allow NICOR to determine whether behaviour changes introduced by JBS3 risk estimation will result in fewer cardiovascular complications in the population.

The JBS3 has been published at Heart.bmj.com
