CLM-SAP 17: Guidelines in Clinical Lipidology: Concepts and Controversies

CLM-SAP 17 is an online self-assessment program that will objectively validate and enhance your knowledge of the available clinical practice guidelines and recommendations related to lipid management in order to reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular risk. As guidelines and recommendations are routinely updated and released, and as different approaches are advocated, clinicians should become familiar with all available guidelines and recommendations in order to implement an informed, evidence-based approach to patient care. This program will review similarities and differences among these important guidelines in order to reduce gaps in implementation of evidence-based therapies.
