Implementing the latest NICE approved Lipid Management Pathway Webinar
We are delighted to host Implementing the latest NICE approved Lipid Management Pathway Webinar on Thursday the 21st of July. This 3 hour webinar will provide a comprehensive overview from specialists focusing on:
- New treatment options (through NICE approved Novel Therapies) for patients who persistently have high lipid levels despite maximum tolerated statin therapy.
- Identification of those with the genetic condition Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH).
- Opportunity to share best practice or raise clinical queries regarding the pathway.
- Reducing health inequalities by ensuring a consistent, national approach to lipid management, using this NICE approved clinical pathway.
Why focus on lipids?
- High cholesterol causes cardiovascular disease and accounts for a third of all heart attacks.
- Almost 80% of patients on Lipid Lowering Therapies fail to reach an LDL-C goal of <1.8mmol/L.
- Every 1mmol/l reduction in low-density lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol reduces risk of a CVD event by 25%
- FH is a genetic condition, causing raised cholesterol from birth. It affects approximately 1:250 of the general population. Untreated, half of men with FH will have a heart attack or stroke before age 50 and a third of women before age 60. Statins are highly effective at reducing this risk.
The South West Academic Health Science Network, together with our Clinical Lead Rhiannon Edwards and renowned clinical experts Dr Dermot Healy, Dr Matthew Fay and Dr Tony Avades, are supporting Primary and Secondary Care to optimise lipid management.
