This highly interactive activity contains animations, mock patient charts, and interactivity learning.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
• Discuss the mechanism and cause of triglyceride-rich remnant lipoproteins.
• Demonstrate effective cardiovascular risk assessment and shared decision-making with high-risk patients with controlled LDL-cholesterol.
