Quality standards in risk prediction

Report

Quality standards in risk prediction sets out a practical framework for the evaluation of disease risk prediction models, via assessments in three domains:

  1. The model
  2. The medical context in which it is to be used
  3. Issues relating to clinical implementation of the model

The report is the product of an international expert symposium examining the issue, and also includes consideration of why evaluation is necessary along with case studies and examples in coronary heart disease and dementia.
