Update in Clinical Cardiology – Harvard Medical School
October 5, 2016 - October 7, 2016$825
There is a persistent gap between the practice of cardiology and the guideline-recommended evaluation and therapy. In a time of continually changing information based on ongoing new research findings, the practicing physician has a hard time maintaining an up-to-date knowledge base and, therefore, competency in these areas. As a result, the performance of the physician frequently lags behind state-of-the-art practices.
This course addresses this gap by providing an extensive review of clinical cardiology through didactic lectures, panel discussions, and cases emphasizing newer concepts of diagnosis, decision making, pharmacology and therapy in the areas of ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, congestive heart failure and other more specific areas.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Apply newly acquired knowledge of cardiovascular disease in the care of cardiac patients
- Incorporate the principles of proper evaluation for cardiovascular disease into practice
- Determine the goals to be achieved in the care of cardiovascular patients and implement tools to achieve these goals
- Appropriately use diagnostic and therapeutic tools to treat patients with cardiovascular disease
This course is targeted to Clinical Cardiologists, Internists, Primary Care Physicians, Allied Health Cardiac Care Personnel (NP’s and PA’s) from National and International Healthcare Facilities, and Fellows.
