The 2016 Canadian Cardiovascular Society dyslipidemia guidelines provide guidance to clinicians for the assessment of risk and appropriate treatment of dyslipidemia for the prevention of cardiovascular disease. The focus is on shared decision making between the clinician and patient. We now recommend non-fasting determination of lipids and expanded definitions of subjects who will benefit from statin therapy. There is also new information on the use of health behaviour modifications and non-statin medications.
