Think Again About Cholesterol

December 21, 2015. Our Think Again About Cholesterol survey results have been published as a supplement in Atherosclerosis! The survey was originally launched this September in support of World Heart Day and FH Awareness Day to raise awareness of the public’s understanding of cholesterol. The survey found there is a discrepancy between understanding the importance of high cholesterol and taking action against the risk for cardiovascular disease. In fact, although 89 percent of adults surveyed agreed it is important to know whether or not they have high low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), 92 percent did not know their cholesterol levels or never had their cholesterol levels tested. For more detailed survey results, check out Atherosclerosis Supplements 20 (2015) 1–5.

FH Studies Collaboration

March 2015. EAS-FH Studies Collaboration survey on the knowledge, attitudes and practices of physicians and healthcare professionals involved in the care of FH.
Before the FH Studies Collaboration Symposium we sent a short questionnaire to Congress delegates. The responses we received were pooled anonymously to generate summary data. We then re-issued the questionnaire in the weeks following the session, and have compared the results of both the pre- and post-session responses. These have been complied in a short presentation, and are now available to view. These results will be used in the ongoing work of the FH Studies Collaboration.
