With the availability of new therapies, introduction of new reimbursement criteria, and emergence of new clinical evidence comes the dilemma of knowing and choosing which therapy to use in treating the patient properly to arrive at planned outcomes. This 1.5-day conference cuts through the controversies of clinical practice in the cardiovascular arena to find methods for creating proven patient and health care system benefits.
This innovative 1.5-day conference will offer cutting edge perspectives on the use of new therapies for cardiovascular disease, focusing on:
- Cases of the Unsuspected - Misdiagnoses of Clinical Cases
- Women's Heart Disease
- Acute Coronary Syndrome Vascular/Interventional Cardiology
- Cardiovascular Imaging
- Technological Innovations
This conference is ideal for cardiologists; cardiovascular surgeons; primary care physicians; cardiovascular medical, interventional and surgical trainees; nurse practitioners; physician assistants; cardiac care associates; hospital and clinic nurses, and others interested in offering patients the benefit of newer treatment options for heart disease.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Determine who is an appropriate candidate for a transcatheter valve insertion.
- Recognize the best technique to determine the true size of the landing zone.
- Recognize that clinical problem-solving requires an open mind and willingness to accept the fact that situations are not always what they seem to be.
- Discuss the impact of gender on outcomes as it relates to cardiovascular disease and acute coronary syndrome.
- Describe new trends in cardiovascular technology and their applications in patient care.
- Review up-to-date findings in the diagnosis and treatment of acute coronary syndrome
