Program Overview


This program will examine several seemingly unrelated complicated disease states and explore common underlying pathologic features that confer increased risk of major adverse cardiovascular events. Diseases such as complex dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease all commonly lead to adverse clinical events that reflect underlying cardiovascular disease. As such, this program describes the inter-relationships of pathologic processes that converge and manifest as cardiovascular risk elements.

 

Complex Cardiovascular Cases will inform physicians about the latest clinical data and new therapeutic insights regarding treatment options to reduce the risk of major adverse cardiac events in patients with a variety of complex disease states. It will also provide physicians with the latest informed thinking about how to incorporate new therapeutic insights into clinical practice, in order to reduce risk of major adverse cardiovascular events in their at-risk patients.


Target Audience


This activity is intended for cardiologists and other physicians who manage patients with complex cardiovascular risk.

Educational Objectives


This program is designed to address the following IOM competencies: provide patient-centered care and employ evidence-based practice.

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

  • Examine the relative effectiveness of intensive statin treatment and existing HDL raising therapies to reduce CVD risk in dyslipidemic patients
  • Explain the clinical data that illustrate the effectiveness of renin system modulation and lipoprotein management to reduce CVD risk in patients with chronic kidney disease
  • Discuss the complexities of reducing CVD risk in patients with diabetes mellitus
  • Incorporate multifaceted CVD risk factor reduction strategies into the management of patients with complicated health issues that put them at risk of major
  • adverse cardiovascular events
