Abstract

Statins remain a controversial drug group and can cause problems for practice nurses who are prescribing them, and/or supporting medicines concordance. This article aims to provide an update into the current thinking underpinning statin use, and to guide the clinician regarding safe and effective practice when managing patients on these drugs. Alternatives to statin therapy are briefly outlined.
