Overcoming the real and imagined barriers to cholesterol screening in pediatrics.

Recent guidance by the United States Preventive Services Task Force has renewed the debate surrounding the benefits of pediatric lipid screening. This commentary reviews the evolution of the pediatric lipid screening recommendations in the United States, followed by an exploration of real and imagined challenges that prevent optimal cholesterol screening rates in children. Real challenges substantively prevent the uptake of these guidelines into practice; imagined challenges, such as identifying the best age to screen, are often context-dependent and can also be surmounted. Experiences from other countries identify potential facilitators to improving screening and additional barriers. Implementation science provides guidance on overcoming the real barriers, translating evidence-based recommendations into clinical practice, and informing the next wave of solutions to overcome these challenges.
