Joint 2016 European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice are published.
How will these new Guidelines affect clinical practice?
The Joint 2016 European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice are published today. In this sixth Guidelines update, experts from 10 Societies have taken into account recently published evidence and now clinicians throughout Europe will be interested to know how they need to modify the advice and treatment they give to their patients.
What is new in these guidelines? How can we identify high risk? What are the risk factor targets? What is new about lipids? How can we use a population-approach to prevent CVD?
An additional Workshop - an early opportunity to explore these and more questions concerning the new guidelines - has been added to the 84th EAS Congress programme, EAS 2016 Innsbruck, on Wednesday June 01, at 11.00.
The speakers are members of the Task Force: Massimo Piepoli (Italy), Ian Graham (Ireland), Alberico L. Catapano (Italy) and Eva Prescott (Denmark).
