WEBINAR: Statins adherence, 21st November, 12.00 – 13.00

Non-adherence to medicines is a major contributor to the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Join this one-hour online education session on Tuesday 21st November which explores how to:

  • address non-aherance to cardiovascular medicines in daily clinical practice, with a focus on statins
  • maximise statin adherence through novel therapies
  • enable people to minimise their risk of CVD events through personalised care tools.

This webinar will be led jointly by Health Innovation North East and North Cumbria and Health Innovation Yorkshire and Humber and is aimed at primary and secondary care staff who prescribe statins, or support people who are eligible for statins.

Dr Jane Skinner graduated in medicine from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. She trained as a cardiologist and before that also completed training in general practice. She has a MD examining the outcome of patients 5 years after CABG.  She worked as a consultant cardiologist at Bishop Auckland General Hospital, before moving to take up a new post as a consultant cardiologist with a particular responsibility for community cardiology at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle upon Tyne. In that role she worked with primary care to support and implement evidence-based practice, and to enhance and develop services.  Specific areas of interest included prevention of cardiovascular disease, cardiac rehabilitation, coronary disease and heart failure. She had a keen interest in the development and implementation of effective guidelines, including working on NICE guidelines as well as leading development of a number of local guidelines. More recently, since retiring and leaving Newcastle Hospitals, she has worked with colleagues to implement the HI NENC AF programme and now the CVD programme, and currently chairs the CVD programme strategy group.
