The New Era of PCSK9 Inhibitors: Patient Perspectives and Identifying Barriers to Care
This CME activity includes four, 30-minute modules that bring learners up to date on all aspects of treatment and management of patients with dyslipidemia. Dr. Christopher P. Cannon will interview four experts in the field of cardiology. Each module is worth 0.5 CME credits. These modules will explore insights in lowering LDL cholesterol, an analysis of clinical trial data regarding PCSK9 inhibitors and their role in reducing CV risk, and identifying treatment barriers. Each module will enable healthcare providers to walk away with tangible information to better treat their patients.
Cardiologists, internists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with dyslipidemia.
