The challenge

  • Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is a common disorder that carries a lifelong risk of coronary heart disease (CHD)
  • Early identification and effective management is critical to reduce the occurrence of CHD
  • Our client wanted to improve awareness, education and early identification of FH

Our approach

  • Our Nurse Advisor worked with 47 practices to ensure patients would receive optimal management after assessment
  • Their role was to audit patient records and assign a risk category to each patient, determining the appropriate pathway
  • The programme included doctor assessments and patient reviews with the FH Nurse for education and discussion

The outcome

  • The Nurse Advisor Programme conducted 116 audits and reviewed 1,505 patients, of which 210 patients were invited for clinic visits, and 109 attended
  • The prevalence of patients diagnosed with FH increased from one in 450 to one in 357. Following the programme, the proportion of patients at risk and unscreened reduced by 75% to 0.14%
  • The Ashfield Nurse Advisor received 100% positive patient feedback
