Program Overview


For patients with cardiovascular disease, one size does not fit all. Are you aware of the latest research on novel investigational drugs which may increase HDL and improve clinical outcomes for your at-risk patients?

 

This new CME-certified symposia series at ACC Chapter Meetings examines the importance of lipoprotein management for secondary prevention of major adverse cardiac events in post-ACS patients. Participants will learn to recognize residual risk associated with even intense statin therapy to lower LDL, as well as the limitations of current therapies to increase HDL, while building an awareness of the prospects of novel therapies to increase HDL and reduce CVD risk in ACS patients, as well as to provide primary prevention in high-risk patients.


Target Audience


This activity is intended for cardiologists and primary care physicians involved in the treatment of patients with dyslipidemia.

Educational Objectives


This program is designed to address the following IOM competencies: provide patient-centered care and employ evidence-based practice.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate the ability to:

  • Examine the extent of residual CVD risk that continues to burden dyslipidemic ACS patients despite intensive statin treatment
  • Understand HDL metabolism and functionality in the setting of ACS
  • Compare the relative effectiveness of existing treatments to raise HDL and reduce CVD risk
  • Explain the rationale for developing CETP modulators and inhibitors to increase HDL and reduce CVD risk
  • Discuss how the modulation of complex cholesterol metabolism could have an impact on atherogenesis and improve clinical outcomes

Accreditation


This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of Potomac Center for Medical Education and Rockpointe Corporation. The Potomac Center for Medical Education is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
