ASSIGN Score – prioritising prevention of cardiovascular disease

Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN)

This is an internationally respected Scottish national body, described best on its website. It has developed and published, revised, republished (and in some cases withdrawn) numerous guidelines for adoption in Scotland and consulted elsewhere. The guideline that relates to ASSIGN is number 97 'Risk Estimation and the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease' of February 2007.

A list of the members of the SIGN risk estimation group who helped to refine the study proposal and analyses is available on our Authors and Copyright page.
