- Describe the potential biologic basis for the reductions in ASCVD events observed in REDUCE-IT.
- Apply evidence-based trial data and guidelines to lifestyle and therapeutic approaches for managing patients with or at high risk of ASCVD events.
- Discuss strategies to improve the knowledge, skills or performance of the healthcare team.
