At the heart of general practice since 1960

Effective Cholesterol-Lowering Options in Primary Care

Presented by Dr. Alan Begg, a GP practising in Scotland for over 30 years and a Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Dundee. This presentation is based on the discussions of a working party which included general practitioners, a practice nurse, a dietitian and a professor of lipidology.

The video takes a brief look at the options in primary care for lowering patient’s serum cholesterol and looks at how we identify people with raised cholesterol in general practice, the effective options for lowering cholesterol and how we communicate these to our patients, especially those with cardiovascular disease or those at high risk of developing the disease. The presentation was initiated, funded and reviewed by Benecol Ltd.
