Recent Advances in Cardiovascular Therapies

Program Description
Recent advances in diagnostic modalities and therapeutic options for patients with known or suspected cardiac disease have emerged at a fast pace. Novel treatments for disease management may not be integrated into day-to-day clinical practice due to insufficient knowledge of these new treatment strategies, as well as uncertainty in the selection of appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic options for the right patient, at the right time.
