Clinical Practice Guidelines

Clinical practice guideline (CPG), clinical practice algorithm (CPA), and clinical checklist (CC, collectively CPGAC) development is a high priority of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) and American College of Endocrinology (ACE).
This clinical practice guideline is a practical tool that endocrinologists, other health care professionals, health-related organizations, and regulatory bodies can use to reduce the risks and consequences of dyslipidemia.
This algorithm for the comprehensive management of dyslipidemia and prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) complements the 2017 American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists/American College of Endocrinology (AACE/ACE) Guidelines for Management of Dyslipidemia and Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease and provides clinicians with a practical guide that considers the whole patient, their spectrum of risks and complications, and evidence-based approaches to treatment.
