ABSTRACT
The author comments on the study that supports the efficacy of a new cardiovascular disease risk score (QRISK) in predicting risk for cardiovascular disease in primary care patients in Great Britain. He asserts that the study highlights the importance of updating risk prediction models, but limited on its scope of population. He pointed out that the study leaves an unclear answer whether QRISK can be applied to other patient databases.
