Survey of family physicians reveals a need to assess cholesterol education materials
A survey was conducted to assess the implementation of the National Cholesterol Education Program guidelines on the detection, evaluation and treatment of hypercholesterolemia among patients of family physicians who belong to the South Carolina Family Practice Residency Consortium. Their educational practices and the materials they use in teaching their patients about high blood cholesterol are also determined. Results show that 65% of family physicians feel confident of their ability to treat and educate their patients about the disorder, however, they decry the inadequacy of educational materials available to properly implement the NCEP guidelines.
