This tool helps clinicians show patients estimates of the benefits and harms for them of taking aspirin. The tool informs and helps them decide on taking aspirin, as it is a decision only they can make.
It takes into account whether they are on medications and/or have any other health conditions that can influence bleeding and CVD events. It is based on a New Zealand cohort of 245,028 patients. The data may not be relevant to patients in countries outside New Zealand.
