Who should attend?

These learning events are targeted at all primary care healthcare professionals who apply the cholesterol management pathway, run Structured Medicine Reviews, Long Term Condition Reviews and Health Checks – clinical pharmacists, GPs, nurses, dieticians or any other professional group who is interested in learning by Tackling Cholesterol Together, Lowering Cholesterol and Saving Lives.

Project teams working with AHSNs to improve their pathways through case finding and lipid optimisation will particularly find this useful to achieve their objectives.

The learning value is not limited to primary care. Secondary Care specialist lipid and FH nurses and consultants may also find this informative, especially content around Familial Hypercholesterolaemia and novel therapies on the horizon.
