Community Seminars

Up to one in six Canadians—and 30% between the ages of 55 and 74—have high cholesterol. Studies have shown that for every 1% drop in total cholesterol, the risk of death due to heart attack drops by 2%.

By educating your patients about cholesterol, you will help them make more informed lifestyle decisions.

In this seminar, you will take patients through a presentation that explains what cholesterol is, how it causes problems, how to know when it is too high and what to do to reduce cholesterol levels, including diet choices, physical activity and weight loss. You will also provide details on the five different types of cholesterol-lowering medications (statins, niacin, fibrates, cholesterol absorption inhibitors, and resins or bile acid sequestrants).

Materials include a background refresher document for you, a PowerPoint presentation and a patient handout.
