Cardiovascular disease is still the major killer in our society. It is responsible for 11% of deaths in Australia. As a preventable disease there is an opportunity to make a big difference for about 2 to 3 million Australians.
In this podcast Dr Mark Donohoe and Andrew Whitfield-Cook discuss what clinicians need to know and do to reduce cardiovascular disease risk.
