Triglycerides CPD Overview

Cardiovascular risk reduction has come a long way since the early trials of statins. It is recognised as an important aspect of the management of an array of conditions where vascular risk dominates, such as diabetes, hypertension, mental health disorders, and rheumatological disorders. Consequently, many models exist that determine cardiovascular risk in the individual such as QRisk2 and QRisk3, the latter incorporating more nuanced contributory co-morbidities. Latterly, there have also been developments in the targeting of other components associated with cardiovascular risk markers besides cholesterol, such as hypertriglyceridaemia.

This module blends traditional cardiovascular risk reduction with emerging technologies. It also draws the user to a better understanding of the use of risk calculators and the interpretation of risk reduction in the individual patient.

Once you complete this module — and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% — you'll be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
