National Lipid Association Recommendations for Patient-Centered Management of Dyslipidemia
Host Dr. Alan Brown is joined by an expert panel to discuss the NLA's latest draft document that will serve as recommendations to clinicians for treating patients with dyslipidemia. The National Lipid Association's goal was to harmonize guidelines among what has been presented in the past by the ATP panel, the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guidelines, and those also released in 2013 by the International Atherosclerosis Society. The NLA reaffirms the importance of understanding targets of treatment and goals for patients.
