The understanding of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) has advanced markedly in the past decades, demonstrating that low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) is a causal agent for plaque initiation and progression. Cholesterol-laden macrophages are a key component of the resulting atherosclerotic plaque. Research has been followed by the development of an ever-expanding number of therapeutic agents to lower cholesterol components that lead to the formation of atherosclerotic plaque.
The IMPACT initiative is an online learning tool for clinicians and patients interested in the management of elevated levels of cholesterol in the blood, or hypercholesterolemia. By compiling up-to-date information on the presentation, prognosis, pathophysiology, and treatment options for hypercholesterolemia, we aim to provide users with a convenient resource that improves clinical outcomes and quality of life for patients. Our goal is to empower healthcare providers to personalize therapy based on therapeutic response and patient-specific factors through their participation in our online offerings and exploration of the Clinician Toolkit. Our Patient Toolkit is a handy resource that educates patients about their disease and empowers them to engage in their healthcare decisions.
