While statins have served as a mainstay of therapy for cholesterol management, patients frequently discontinue therapy or are unable to meet treatment goals, which underscores the importance of the development of PCSK9 inhibitors. This activity features a panel that includes a moderator, a physician, a pharmacist, and a managed care expert, all of whom offer unique perspectives on how PCSK9 inhibitors fit into the current treatment landscape of hypercholesterolemia. The evolving role of these agents is of interest due to the implications of new cost-versus-benefit data that can factor into effectively creating processes to manage this patient population.
