CME Symposium- Managing LDL-C with PCSK9 Inhibitors: Identifying the Patients, Optimizing the Outcomes
This CME Symposium takes place on Friday, February 22, 2019, from 6:45 PM- 9:00 PM at the Hilton Portland Downtown, Galleria Ballroom, 921 SW Sixth Avenue, Portland, Oregon.
LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) is a central focus of cardiovascular risk reduction. Prudent use of PCSK9 inhibitors requires the identification of patients with elevated LDL-C at increased cardiovascular risk. High-risk patients include those with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and those with LDL-C ≥ 190 mg/dL without ASCVD. Awareness of the evidence with PCSK9 inhibitors, discussions of best use of these agents by lipid experts, and interactive case presentations aim to facilitate treatment by lipidologists of appropriate patients with these drugs to optimize clinical outcomes. In this program, Chair Dr. James Underberg, and faculty members Dr. Ty Gluckman, Dr. Margo Minissian, Dr. Michael Shapiro, and Dr. Pam Taub, will use these educational formats to assist lipidologists in patient management with PCSK9 inhibitors.
