Patients will need your help improving adherence to their statin...since up to 50% of patients stop taking theirs within a year.
This is often due to conflicting info about risks and benefits in the media and online...or patients may experience side effects.
But keep in mind, statins reduce heart attacks and strokes in patients with, or at high risk of, cardiovascular disease. Plus statin adherence is a quality measure for Medicare Star Ratings.
