  • Overview

    We now have evidence-based options to reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) event burden beyond any previously available therapy. A pragmatic approach that addresses residual cardiovascular (CV) risk across a variety of risk factors and that goes beyond LDL-C lowering therapies is needed to optimally manage patients with or at high risk of ASCVD. Pharmacists treating these patients require review of recent data and guidelines so they can incorporate these findings into clinical practice. Join us to ensure you’re keeping up with the science and giving your patients the best care.

  • Learning Objectives

    The goal of this activity is to enable effective collaboration and communication between the members of the professional teams who care for patients with ASCVD risk. After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

    1. Discuss biologic effects of omega-3s, their mechanisms of action, and what makes prescription icosapent ethyl different
    2. Engage with physicians to interpret the recent major clinical trials on omega-3s and their clinical implications for patients
    3. Have greater competence to discuss the use of icosapent ethyl and define the shortfalls of dietary supplements for ASCVD management
  • Target Audience

    This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of primary care physicians, pharmacists, and other members of the interprofessional team who are involved in the management of patients with ASCVD risk.
