Education related to the latest evidence based use of statins to treat patients at risk of cardiovascular problems. Also education was provided about deprescibing when the evidence is showing that lifestyle changes maybe be better encouraged. Education provided about the efficacy of statins in the age group over 75 years.

I found this to be a very interesting topic. So much has been said about the statins. How they assist in lowering cholesterol and their side effects. This video reinforced as well as verified knowledge that had been presented to me.
