Cardiovascular Disease Management: Contemporary Approaches Virtual Series

March 24, 2021

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.

Target Audience

Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, residents & fellows specializing in cardiology and primary care.

Competencies Areas
ABMS: Patient care & procedural skills, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, systems-based practice
IOM: Provide patient-centered care, work in interdisciplinary teams, employ evidence-based practice

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe outpatient management strategies designed to reduce chronic heart failure readmissions
  • Explore the catheter-based options available for patients with atrial fibrillation for rhythm management and cardioembolic stroke prevention
  • Apply cardiac computed tomography in the evaluation and management of patients with known or suspected cardiac disease
  • Differentiate the various treatment options available and understand of the value of a “Heart Team” approach for patients with valve disease
  • Recognize which patients should be screened for aortic pathology, including best practices for evaluation and timing of surgery
  • Identify patients that can be safely discharged on the same day following percutaneous coronary intervention
  • Define the appropriate evaluation strategies and available treatment options for patients with critical limb ischemia
