Abstract

Recently published guidelines, The Report of the Adult Treatment Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults, have tremendous implications for the practice of nursing. This paper presents key elements from that report and discusses how these guidelines can be used to enhance clinical practice among nurses treating and counseling patients with elevated blood cholesterol levels. In addition to discussing the major treatment modalities of diet and drugs, this paper considers implications for nurses working with Black patients.
