Lipid interest group
Why not join HEART UK's Lipid Interest Group?
It is open to all nurses and allied health professionals with an interest in cholesterol and other blood fats (lipids).
The group aims to:
- Help Educate health care professionals and patients on all aspects related to lipids;
- Network and support those working in lipids;
- Promote up to date research and information on lipid problems and their treatments
- Identify new and current lipid clinics in the UK and those health care professionals involved with them.
We send out a ‘round robin’ every 2 months, which includes articles, information, recent research, case studies or anything related to raised lipids and their treatment which would be of interest to the members. We also share information on upcoming conferences, meetings and study days. Any member of the group can contribute/volunteer to do this. Examples of previous postings can be seen at the bottom of the page, including a recent Guidelines in Practice Webinar on the NICE Lipid Modification guideline.
The group meets annually and last year met at HEART UK's Annual Conference in Hatfield on Thursday 17th September 2015. Our next meeting will take place at HEART UK's Annual Conference in Edinburgh in Summer 2016
