about this event

This highly anticipated meeting is aimed at trainees and consultants in medical specialties who need to be able to manage patients with lipid disorders, but may lack extensive formal training in lipidology.

The programme will cover the current NICE guidelines for lipid modification, dyslipidaemia in specific situations, drugs expected to come to market in the near future such as the PCSK9 inhibitors, and an interactive session to discuss interesting cases.

There are limited spaces available, so book your place today.
