Utrecht Cardiovasculair Cohort (UCC) - CVRM

Utrecht Cardiovasculair Cohort (UCC) - CVRM

In the Utrecht Cardiocascular Cohort, systematic and uniform registration of collected data takes place in the electronic patient file. Using questionnaires, measurements on the patient, and measurements in the blood, the data is collected. By analyzing these data, more and more knowledge is gained for better care.

In the UCC, several specific studies are started. These sub-studies sometimes overlap with existing studies such as the Leidsche Rijn Health Project (LRGP) and the SMART study. 

All relevant cardiovascular disease patients who visit UMC Utrecht for the first time can participate in the study. 

Participants will be followed through links within their medical records at UMC Utrecht, and with regional and national registries, and through questionnaires. In this way we obtain information about (future) drug use, quality of life, dietary habits, new hospital admissions and (cause of) death.
