CCORT Canadian Cardiovascular Atlas


The Canadian Cardiovascular Atlas, written by members of the Canadian Cardiovascular Outcomes Research Team (CCORT), is the largest and most advanced report of its kind to examine the influence of geography on the burden, risk factors, treatments, and outcomes of heart disease for the more than 1.2 million Canadians suffering from the condition. Along with the findings, several recommendations are presented to help improve heart disease care in Canada and for future research. The 24 chapters of the Atlas were originally published as articles in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology.
