Individuals with hypertension and dyslipidemia often rely on a combination of pharmacotherapy and healthy lifestyle changes to manage their conditions. As accessible healthcare professionals, pharmacists are in an ideal position to promote adherence to medication regimens, lifestyle changes and support patients trying to achieve specific treatment goals.
Through a series of online modules, this course provides an overview on current management of hypertension and dyslipidemia, as well as lifestyle modifications to optimize therapy. Motivational interviewing concepts are also introduced to help pharmacists identify how to empower patients to improve their overall cardiovascular health.
