Framingham Risk Score1
Risk assessment tool for estimating a patient’s 10-year risk of developing cardiovascular disease
This online assessment tool is intended as a clinical practice aid for use by experienced healthcare professionals.
Results obtained from this tool should not be used alone as a guide for patient care.
The risk assessment tool above uses information from the Framingham Heart Study as
recommended by the 2009 CCS Canadian Cholesterol Guidelines to predict a person’s
chance of developing cardiovascular disease in the next 10 years, modified for family history (double the CVD risk percentage if any CVD present in a first degree relative before age 60). In men over 50 or women over 60 of intermediate risk whose LDL-C does not already suggest treatment, hsCRP can be used for risk stratification. Please enter your patient’s information
