Meeting Real-world Challenges in Hypercholesterolaemia Management: Insight from a Pan-European Crowdsourcing Activity

Following a pan-European crowdsourcing survey, which assessed current practices, attitudes and knowledge on CV risk, we are delighted to have our esteemed faculty present the findings and put them into context of real-world practice.  

The survey, which compared results from European cardiologists and primary care providers, highlighted several interesting trends in prescribing practices and knowledge gaps in assessing patient risk. During this live webinar, our crowdsourcing results will serve as a basis to discuss several other large practice-based studies and to recap on current guideline-directed practice.
