Controversies in the Management of Cardiovascular Disease
A CME conference designated for 7.25 AMA PRA category I credits™. This conference will also allow the learner to earn ABIM MOC points.
Cardiovascular services at Northwell Health and The Heart and Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic will host a co-provided CME program. The 2nd annual cardiovascular conference will be held on October 6, 2017, to address the rapidly evolving discipline of cardiovascular medicine. This collaboration is aimed at providing clinicians with knowledge of new and enhanced treatments and technologies in cardiology and cardiac surgery.
Topics to be addressed will include therapeutic advances including:
- Ischemic heart disease
- Structural heart disease
- Advanced heart failure
- Electrophysiology trends and developments.
This cardiovascular medicine conference will focus on delivering updates on the management of common yet prevalent cardiovascular conditions to ensure patients with cardiac diseases receive the most optimal care.
Through lectures and a case study presentation, faculty from Northwell Health and The Cleveland Clinic will provide information on cardiac research and technological advances that will positively impact everyday clinical practice.
All Northwell Health CME activities are intended to improve patient care, safety, and outcomes. At the conclusion of this conference, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate new treatments and technologies in cardiovascular medicine and incorporate them into practice to optimize patient outcomes.
- Summarize recent clinical trials and research that have rapidly advanced pharmacologic and mechanical therapies for common cardiovascular diseases.
- Analyze quality metrics and performance data from the National Cardiovascular Data Registry, the New York State Department of Health and other agencies to determine which therapies translate best into real world clinical practice.
- Incorporate updated American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology guidelines into the care of patients presenting with ischemic heart disease, heart failure, electrophysiology, dyslipidemia and other cardiac conditions.
Who should attend?
Clinicians who want to remain up to date on advanced cardiovascular medicine should attend, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and those clinicians within the specialties of cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, emergency medicine, internal medicine and family practice. The depth and complexity of recent advances in the cardiology field make it difficult for busy practitioners to remain up to date as to knowledge and practices. This conference will give you a leg up.
