This guideline (last updated in 2013) focuses on primary prevention in adults to reduce the risk of ASCVD (acute coronary syndromes, myocardial infarction, stable or unstable angina, arterial revascularization, stroke/transient ischemic attack, peripheral artery disease) and emphasizes patient‐specific treatment considerations, shared decision‐making, and a multidisciplinary team‐based approach in regards to implementation of recommended strategies. In this Pharmacy Pearl, you will find highlighted indications for treatment, a treatment
algorithm and a review of the available medications.
