About

This is an observational, cross-sectional, national multicenter study, trying to obtain local data about the global cardiovascular risk profile of patients attending ambulatory offices of general practitioners and cardiologists. The aim of the study is to describe how physicians diagnose and stratify their patients in cardiovascular primary prevention setting and to highlight if patients are stratify through objective tools (risk scores and in this case, wich of them are used) or in subjective ways (clinical evaluation).
