This highly interactive activity contains animations, mock patient charts, and interactivity learning.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:  

  • Discuss the mechanism and cause of triglyceride-rich remnant lipoproteins. 
  • Demonstrate effective cardiovascular risk assessment and shared decision-making with high-risk patients with controlled LDL-cholesterol.
  • Identify in which patients triglyceride-rich lipoproteins may be the primary treatment target
  • Outline appropriate therapy options for high CVD risk patients with elevated triglyceride levels
  • Discuss strategies to improve the knowledge, skills or performance of the healthcare team
