Biochemistry Update on Endocrine & Lipids

  • Does your heart sink when you arrive in the morning to a full pathology inbox?
  • Does an endocrine result beyond TFTs and HbA1c get you wondering what next?
  • Do your patients ask you for the blood test “to see if I am menopausal Doc”?
  • Do you get confused about the latest guidance around lipids?
  • Are you seeing more requests for incliseran but not quite sure what it is/how to prescribe it?

If you are looking at these questions and a thinking “yes” then this is the recording is for you, we will be covering topics that aren’t often covered in Biochemistry. The whole aim of this webinar is to help you manage pathology results more confidently.

Consultant Chemical Pathologist and Lipidologist Dr Paul Downie, from Salisbury District Hospital, will be joining us to cover the less well-known parts of biochemistry.
