The Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians cordially invites you to attend a CME/CE-certified presentation titled, “Managing Elevated LDL-C Levels to Reduce ASCVD Risk: Primary and Secondary Prevention.” This activity will provide primary care providers with the necessary knowledge to identify and treat patients who would benefit from ASCVD risk reduction. Learn about the latest treatment recommendations, including nonstatin therapies, LDL-C goals, and best practices in developing a personalized multidisciplinary treatment plan to optimize patient care.
- Assess the efficacy, safety, and mechanism of action of nonstatin agents approved to manage LDL-C levels
- Devise individualized evidence-based primary prevention plans for patients with elevated LDL-C levels
- Develop personalized strategies for secondary prevention for patients with elevated LDL-C levels using evidence-based guidelines
- Escalate treatment of elevated LDL-C levels by incorporating approved nonstatin agents when statins alone do not achieve 2018 blood cholesterol guideline goals
