WEBINAR | Lipids in the limelight: clinical update on screening and management

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 cardiovascular disease (CVD), many patients fail to meet their lipid targets.

Hosted by the Heart Foundation in partnership with the World Heart Federation, this webinar explores the latest evidence around screening and management of high cholesterol for the reduction of CVD risk. Chaired by Prof. Garry Jennings, the expert panel explores the practical implementation of emerging evidence and tools and resources that can help improve the delivery of preventative CVD assessments in primary care.



Duration: 1 hour
Year recorded: 2021

Topics covered:
  • The relationship between lipid biomarkers and CVD risk
  • Practical update on new lipid lowering therapies for the prevention and treatment of CVD, including PCSK9 inhibitors and other therapies on the horizon
  • Brief introduction to the screening and diagnosis of familial hypercholesterolaemia in primary care
  • What general practices can do to champion CVD prevention and implement structured screening programs

Further reading:

  1. Heart Health Check Toolkit
  2. Absolute CVD Risk Guidelines
  3. CPD e-learning module for GPs – Lipids in the limelight: A GP's guide to cutting CV risk*
