Organization of Lipid Clinics
Lipid clinics may be expected to provide facilities for accurate diagnosis and optimal management of hyperlipidemias. By bringing together patients with similar problems, lipid clinics afford the opportunity for more efficient use of time by dietitians who counsel the patients (possibly counselling them in groups) and laboratory technicians who analyze the lipid content of blood samples. The clinics also provide an opportunity for discussion of diagnostic and therapeutic problems by staff physicians, house staff and students of medicine, dietetics and nursing. Such conferences provide an opportunity for members of the medical community to continuously improve their knowledge and may serve as an incentive for physicians to participate in such clinics.
