Join us for this live broadcast where faculty will ensure physicians based in Malaysia are aware of the importance of risk stratification in relation to secondary prevention and how this is dealt with in the recent ESC guidance and why it's important. The faculty will make a distinct comparison between the ESC guidelines and what the Malaysian guidelines say is central to this, including why is risk stratification important. 

In the second part of this broadcast, the faculty will outline how to implement lipid clinics and what the outcomes of these clinics are for patients. 

This programme is supported by an unrestricted educational grant by Novartis and being endorsed by the National Heart Association of Malaysia.
