My current focus involves conducting two systematic reviews as part of a project considering the optimal strategies for monitoring lipid levels in patients at risk or with cardiovascular disease. The first review aims to determine the 'best' lipid measure by considering the predictive value of various lipid measures for cardiovascular risk and mortality both for primary and secondary prevention. The second considers the effectiveness of lipid lowering treatment on different lipid measures. Both reviews will support further research studying individual patient data sets and finally statistical models to estimate cost effectiveness of lipid screening and monitoring.
