Pooling and expanding registries of familial hypercholesterolaemia to assess gaps in care
20 December 2016
The EAS FHSC Rational and Methods article has now been published in Atherosclerosis Supplements and is available Open Access. This paper describes the rational supporting the development of the EAS FHSC initiative and the methodology to build the global FH registry in order to achieve the aims of the project, i.e. to generate large-scale, robust information on how FH is detected, manage and the clinical consequences thereof. As mentioned in the paper: "the EAS FHSC represents an excellent opportunity to integrate individual efforts across the world to tackle the global burden of FH. The information garnered from the registry will help reduce gaps in knowledge, inform best practices, assist in clinical trials design, support clinical guidelines and policies development, and ultimately improve the care of FH patients".
