VENUE: Venturi Cardiology, 4 The Square, 740 Birchwood Boulevard, Warrington WA3 7QY
Treating high cholesterol is a priority in the NHS Long Term Plan. It has a major impact on cardiovascular disease (CVD), currently the biggest cause of death in the UK.
During this interactive session, we will look at cholesterol and lipid management in a primary care setting. You will hear from Dr Scott Murray, founder and clinical director at Venturi Cardiology and past-president of the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR) and Dr David Unwin, the Low Carb GP. We will also have some case studies from recent patients and a patient story.
The session will cover:
• When should you refer on for further investigations, such as advanced lipids, a calcium score
test or a CT coronary angiogram.
• Shared decision making with patients who are reluctant to take statins.
• Options if a patient is borderline Q risk but has a family history of CVD.
We also want to hear from you. What is making the CVD pathway hard and how can we help?
