This symposium reviews current cardiovascular outcomes data for PCSK9 inhibitors, how to integrate non-statin lipid-lowering therapies and current cholesterol guidelines for the management of high CV-risk patients, and strategies for gaining access to PCSK9 inhibitors for high CV risk patients that need them. 

In addition, attendees will have an opportunity to develop a treatment plan for real-world patients and compare and discuss their strategies with the faculty panel. Attendees are also encouraged to bring or submit difficult cases and questions to challenge the faculty in the “Stump the Faculty” segment.

Intended Learners
This CME initiative will target Lipid Specialists, Cardiologists, Endocrinologists, Primary Care Providers (MDs/DOs), nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), and other healthcare providers who practice in a primary care setting. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Assess current cardiovascular outcomes data for PCSK9 inhibitors in patients at increased risk for CV events
  2. Integrate PCSK9 inhibitors in the management of real-world patients at high CV risk requiring additional LDL-C reduction 
  3. Formulate strategies to improve patient access to PCSK9 inhibitors for those who require further CV risk reduction
