Ask the Expert: Assessing Critical Evidence for Managing Dyslipidemia
Please read the following information about this continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activity before accessing the presentation using link located at the bottom of this page.
Accreditation for Pharmacists
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. This activity provides 1 hour (0.1 CEU) of continuing pharmacy education credit (ACPE activity 0204-0000-13-414-L01-P).
Methods and Format
This is a live web-based activity consisting of audio, presentation slides, and an activity evaluation tool. Participants must participate in the entire presentation and complete the course evaluation to receive continuing pharmacy education credit. Participants may print their official statements of continuing pharmacy education credit immediately following the activity. This activity is provided free of charge. View full CE processing instructions.
This continuing pharmacy education activity was planned to meet the needs of pharmacists in a variety of practice settings, including large and small health systems, outpatient clinics, managed-care organizations, long-term care facilities, and academia. This activity is particularly beneficial for pharmacists, clinical specialists, managers, leaders, and educators who are interested in current strategies for the management of dyslipidemia.
This activity will focus on evidence and scientific statements that have been published since the release of the National Cholesterol Education Panel (NCEP) Adult Treatment Panel III (ATPIII) guidelines. These publications influence the treatment of individual patients with dyslipidemia. Based on these data, faculty will predict changes that might be seen in the newest version of the NCEP guidelines (the ATP IV), which are due to be released in 2013.
The content for this live webinar is based on questions raised by participants in a recent educational symposium on this topic. Time for questions and answers from the webinar audience will be provided at the end of the presentation.
At the conclusion of this knowledge-based educational activity, participants should be able to
- Describe at least two evidence-based recommendations for dyslipidemia treatment that are different than what is currently recommended in the NCEP ATP III.
- Explain the proven benefits of specific drug therapy combinations for the treatment of dyslipidemia.
