Heart & Circulation

If you or a loved one has direct experience with cardiovascular events (heart attacks), your input is needed on a review!

Skills / interests: Consumer (public, patient, carer) input

Would you be interested in helping us with this article focused on treatment for prevention of cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks?

I am looking for a consumer who would be willing to peer review this Cochrane systematic review “Colchicine for the primary prevention of cardiovascular events.” Cochrane considers a consumer to be a person with experience of the condition (in this case, cardiovascular events), either as a patient or as a carer/family member of a patient. From a consumer perspective, we are interested if the language of the review, especially the language used in the Plain Language Summary, is accessible and if it feels relevant for those experiencing cardiovascular events, such that it will be helpful to patients and carers with healthcare decision making.

While you are welcome to provide feedback on any aspect of the review, you can focus your attention on the summary sections. Our aim is for this to be a manageable task, that does not overburden consumer reviewers.

Thank you in advance for considering!
