Cholesterol Patient Handouts

The Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association has developed a series of free cholesterol tools, including a cholesterol booklet and sheet for your use.

Cholesterol: What You Need to Know - Fact Sheet 

This two-sided fact sheet was designed in response to the new prevention guidelines published in November 2013 as a take-home teaching tool for healthcare providers to use when counseling patients with dyslipidemia. This information was developed using plain-language guidelines for both English and Spanish speakers. The tool is available in color as well as black and white.

Cholesterol: Your Plan for a Healthy Lifestyle

Cholesterol Booklet
The updated Cholesterol: Your Plan for a Healthy Lifestyle 16-page booklet includes colorful illustrations and descriptions of high LDL-cholesterol and how it affects the body, risk factors, healthy eating and weight management, the importance of exercise, and pharmacologic treatments.

Patients can use checklists to identify their risk factors—both those that they can change and those that they cannot—as well as check their understanding of the information, and identify steps that they will do related to their activity level and their medications.

This booklet is available as a free download in English. PCNA members may order hard copies of our patient education tools at no charge.
