    • Overview

      Aspirin has been used for primary prevention of stroke and heart attacks for decades.   While the evidence for aspirin’s benefit in reducing secondary heart or stroke events for patients who have already had an event is solid, three recent trials and latest published guidelines don’t paint the same picture.   Should aspirin for the primary prevention of heart disease be allowed to rest in peace? Or, is there still a role for those at highest risk?   Join this discussion where we will review the evidence to identify best practices for aspirin use and discover specific strategies to engage in patient conversation about aspirin use for the primary prevention of heart disease.
