Tackling Cholesterol Together is supporting healthcare professionals to address under diagnosis and under treatment and use new models to manage cholesterol. It is underpinned by an updated NICE endorsed pathway, with certificates issued for completion of all content.
The NHS Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) and The AHSN Network are partnering with the cholesterol charity, HEART UK, to launch a new education programme for healthcare professionals called Tackling Cholesterol Together.
Tackling Cholesterol Together will be delivered though videos, podcasts, webinars, expert clinics and online modules. All e-learning modules in the programme are free of charge.
Through videos, podcasts, webinars, expert clinics, and online modules, clinical experts and national leaders will be sharing knowledge on the AAC NICE endorsed lipid management pathways, statin intolerance, familial hypercholesterolaemia, referral for genetic testing, PCSK9i’s, novel therapies, diet and lifestyle, behavioural change, adherence, hesitancy and patient-centred conversations.
Find out more and access the resources on Heart UK’s website.
The education programme supports all healthcare professionals across primary and secondary care to take control of cholesterol management to and systematically change lipid management in line with updated NICE endorsed pathways, including novel new NICE recommended therapies.
