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
