The Learning Process:
Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 30 minutes.
- Describe the role of inflammation in the development of heart disease.
- Identify the clinical concept of “residual inflammatory risk.”
- State how targeting inflammation may provide a novel pathway to treat atherosclerosis, beyond lowering cholesterol.
Requirements for successful completion: Participants will be awarded contact hours commensurate with participation after completion of the post-test with a score of 70% or higher.
