NICE must leave its ivory tower

Comment

One thing one has to realise : many of these patients are likely NOT taking any regular medication prior to being told their CVD risk is >10% . Otherwise , it is all about effort to 'change' to a everyday medication behaviour and be compliant. Do all these academics know how hard it is? While I do not have any problem with the science , it is about treating our patients in a holistic way, easy said than done. The temptation at the end is just treating them like piles of figures and numbers ( because we have no time). Sad but true.......
