Lipids in the limelight: clinical update on screening and management of high cholesterol
Thursday 29 July 2021, 8 pm AEST (live and recorded)
FREE Zoom webinar
In partnership with the World Heart Federation, the Heart Foundation brings to you another event in our health professional webinar series. We will be hosting an interactive clinical webinar to explore the latest evidence around screening and management of high cholesterol for cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk reduction.
High cholesterol contributes to over a third of coronary heart disease burden. Despite well-established evidence supporting the benefits of cholesterol lowering for the prevention of CVD, many patients fail to meet their lipid targets.
During this session, our global expert panel will explore the practical implementation of emerging evidence as well as tools and resources that can help improve the delivery of preventative CVD assessments in primary care.
