What ethnicity should be used for Fijians when calculating CV risk using QRisk3?
Notes about answers
If you see something you feel is wrong, don’t criticise (that misses the point of Triple) courteously and supportively give a counter answer.
Answers given should be in good faith, but they should not be considered definitive, be critical.

So far, nothing back - but hopefully they'll reply at some stage!
