In reply: On behalf of the National Vascular Disease Prevention Alliance, I thank Usherwood for raising concerns about the evidence-based recommendations (EBRs) within the Guidelines for the management of absolute cardiovascular disease risk.1 These guidelines inform a comprehensive, absolute risk approach to prevention of cardiovascular disease, and were approved by the National Health and Medical Research Council in 2012.
