We are pleased to announce that our Familial hypercholesterolaemia: supporting people better focal point is now open for booking.
People who have familial hypercholesterolemia have a higher risk of heart disease and death at a younger age. The NHS Long Term Plan aims for 25% of people with familial hypercholesterolaemia to be identified over the next 5 years.
This focal point learning programme aims to increase your awareness of familial hypercholesterolaemia to enable you to identify, manage and educate patients who are living with the condition. You will consider how familial hypercholesterolemia differs from high cholesterol in the general population, and how you can support patients to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and improve health outcomes.
In addition, we will consider how to discuss the condition and its impact on cardiovascular risk in a sensitive and person-centred way, and how to describe the range of treatment options available to patients with familial hypercholesterolaemia to promote shared decision making.
