Variation in fatal burden of disease, preventive CVD care and end-of-life care

This partnership application with Heart Foundation of Australia, ABS and AIHW builds primarily on linkage of national census and mortality data and subsequent data integration, including with Australian Health Survey, Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) and Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) data. The project will: quantify socioeconomic variation in fatal burden of disease; develop an ‘Index of Preventive Potential’ across major causes of death, to focus/prioritise interventions; quantify inter-relations between socioeconomic disadvantage, gender and rurality; and quantify variation in CVD prevention and end-of-life care.
