The Diet & Lipids Networking Group
The Diet and Lipids Networking Group is a free, hour-long, quarterly virtual meeting for all healthcare professionals, where any topics relating to the dietary management of cholesterol and other blood lipids are discussed. These meetings provide an open forum to share and learn with other health professionals working nationwide to support you in your clinical practice.
Our next meeting on Thursday 29th June 2023, at 1pm, will be chaired by Lynne Garton, Dietetic Adviser at HEART UK, with expert guest, Dr Peter Penson, Head of Subject (Pharmacy) & Reader in Cardiovascular Pharmacology, Liverpool John Moores University. The topic we will be discussing is ‘Statin Intolerance’.
Come and join us as we investigate the prevalence of this condition; explore statin’s side effects and possible alternative treatment options; discuss the guidelines in place for statin intolerance; address common objections to their use and talk about strategies to overcome these challenges.
Please submit your questions when you register, and we will address the most asked questions during the session!
The Diet and Lipid Networking Group is open to all health professionals with an interest in the dietary management of lipids, as well as commissioners, service providers, policymakers and specialist lipid professionals. To raise an agenda item or for further details, contact us.
