Abstract

The writing committee believes that these new PMs closely support the new ACC/AHA Cholesterol Guidelines, will assist providers in providing better care to their patients with improved outcomes, and represent an advance in medication measures because they promote SDM and appropriate dosing. At the same time, the writing committee recognizes that much remains to be done to develop truly robust measures of SDM as well as measures of shared accountability for medication adherence.
