Since atherosclerotic vascular disease is very prevalent, clinicians very frequently face problems about how to deal with different aspects of it. This programme will improve clinical care of patients with cardiovascular disease or in cardiovascular prevention; furthermore researchers in clinical science, epidemiology and translational cardiovascular research will obtain valuable knowledge which will improve research in their field.
Compulsory online interactive, narrated modules 20 to 30 minutes in length, with pre- and post-presentation questions for each module.
Participants in this Programme will improve their understanding of the role of lipids in health and disease on several different levels. These different levels include:
- basic understanding of lipids chemistry and lipoprotein metabolism,
- the role of lipids as risk factors,
- the mechanisms of lipids in cardiovascular disease,
- understanding of lipid disorders and the role of genetics and environmental factors,
- pharmacological interventions against lipid disorders,
- the clinical development of lipids,
- lipid-lowering treatment in cardiovascular prevention and the development of new therapeutic targets.
Understanding the role of lipids in health and disease is important for a broad spectrum of different professionals working in health care and in society at large.
This programme is primarily suited to physicians in internal medicine, cardiology, diabetology, endocrinology and in general practice.
Outside this group, this educational programme is highly relevant to nurses working in lipid clinics, in cardiovascular prevention, in diabetes and in many other clinics training care of patients with cardiovascular or metabolic diseases.
Others who will find the educational content of this programme highly relevant include scientists working in cardiovascular epidemiology and in basic cardiovascular research, and persons employed in the pharma industry.
EAS Certificate of Excellence in Lipidology 2023 Update (ELM23-A00075) has been accredited by the EACCME®, the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists.
Each medical specialist should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). Only those e-learning materials that are displayed on the UEMS-EACCME website have formally been accredited.
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA), physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(TM).
