Statement of Need

Advances in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD) have yielded remarkably positive results, with a steady decline in CVD mortality across the globe. However, despite this remarkable progress, CVD remains the leading cause of death throughout the world and its prevalence remains high, making it a global public health priority and an intensive focus of research.  The results of this research has led to new evidence which continues to accrue about the underlying pathophysiology as well as strategies to enhance CVD prevention, evaluation and treatment.  As care of the patient with CVD becomes more complex, it is imperative that cardiovascular professionals have an opportunity for a comprehensive review of evidence-based practices and exposure to state-of-the-art updates, innovative techniques and translational research on the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease.

Conference Overall Goal

By increasing their expert knowledge, participants should be able to identify guideline-driven, contemporary approaches to cardiovascular patient care.

Learning Objectives

  • Synthesize foundational and advanced cardiovascular disease knowledge, contemporary best practices, and effective care delivery for cardiovascular prevention, evaluation and management
  • Demonstrate appropriate interpretation of cardiovascular guidelines and diagnostic strategies needed in daily practice
  • Review the global burden of cardiovascular disease and the world-wide initiatives to reduce its mortality
  • Utilize appropriate therapeutic strategies in the treatment of patients with hyperlipidemia and hypertension
  • Characterize the timing and expected outcomes of contemporary interventions in patients with valvular heart disease
  • Describe the best practices in the treatment of patients with heart failure including new drugs, surgical strategies and after-discharge care strategies
