Certain cardiac risk factors predict risk factor interventions and influence communication between physicians and patients AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CARDIOLOGY Mora, S., Stafford, R. S., Pasternak, R. C. 2000; 86 (7): 783-?


We assessed predictors of cardiac risk factor testing and services and the degree of concordance among patients, physicians, and the medical records for these services, and found considerable variability among different risk factors. The data suggest that baseline risk factors influence communication and performance of interventions and that physicians appear to be underestimating the importance of treating multiple risk factors simultaneously.
