Early intervention for lifetime CV risk reduction
Clinical updates in management of cardiovascular risk (1/4)10' education - May 30, 2018 - Prof. John Deanfield, MD - University College London, London, UK
CV risk factors that drive arterial disease in early life have a major impact on future CV risk. Communication about early lifestyle intervention to the public should be a major focus to reduce CV risk in later years.

This educational video is part of a series of 4 videos with the theme: Clinical Updates in Management of Cardiovascular Risk.
Educational objectives are:
- To review the epidemiology and current guidelines on the diagnosis, management, and treatment of patients at increased CV risk
- To understand the medical need for intensive risk interventions in patients at high CV risk, including diabetes
- To discuss new concepts in cardiovascular risk management including earlier and more intensive intervention and integrate scientific evidence from key clinical trials into practice
- To explore the role of new risk calculation models for cardiovascular risk estimation and communication
