Lipid disorders are a major, treatable cause of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Knowledge of the various types of dyslipidaemia, genetic and acquired, is therefore important and measurement of the lipid profile is an integral component of risk prediction in primary prevention and management in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. A better understanding of the concept of risk, and what the benefits of prevention are, also means a more motivated patient.
The 10-minute consultation: dyslipidaemia
is a concise and accessible resource on screening, diagnosing and managing lipid disorders in primary care. It is designed for the busy clinician, not only easy to read, but also simple to dip in and out of, with index tabs and evidence-based drug reference tables that offer a wealth of information at your fingertips.
The clinician's manual can be used in the clinic and for studying, containing targeted guidance on all aspects of the primary care clinician's role. Written by experienced key opinion leaders, the book supports everyday patient care and improved outcomes.
