It is Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) policy that no industry support is accepted for the development of guidelines or position statements. The CCS accepts third party funding for guideline knowledge translation activities, seeking multiple supporters whenever possible. Support is accepted to offset the development costs of tools and materials such as pocket guide printing, website development, app development, distribution of journal supplements, etc.. Supporters have no involvement in content development. Dyslipidemia Guideline knowledge translation is currently supported by: PHAC
