New Approaches in the Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease

The Path to Improved Diagnosis and Patient Outcomes

A series of Live Grand Rounds Programs and an On-demand Webcourse

Welcome to New Approaches in the Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease. This CME-certified initiative is intended for interventional cardiologists, general cardiologists, and other physicians who manage patients with CAD. This includes those specialists who provide early evaluation of acute chest pain and diagnosis of CAD, prompt referral and continuity of care on hospital admission, and long-term management of ACS patients in post-discharge care. A series of live CME-certified programs are being presented at selected hospitals, and an online CME-certified web course will be available in fall of 2016.

Program Description

Coronary stents have been proven to save lives during a heart attack and in patients with critical blockages that cause unstable symptoms.

New Approaches in the Treatment of Coronary Artery Disease reviews the existing treatment options and their efficacy and safety profiles and explores when each is appropriate to use in which patients. The CME activity also examines emerging and new innovations, such as drug-eluding stents (DES) with anti-proliferative drugs and antibodies, DES with biologically inert polymers, and fully bioabsorbable stent scaffoldings.

Target Audience

These CME-certified activities are intended for pulmonologists, allergists and immunologists, hospitalists, respiratory therapists, rheumatologists, internists, radiologists, pathologists, NPs, PAs, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who are part of the multidisciplinary care team for patients with IPF.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate the ability to:
  • Understand whether PCI is an appropriate management choice to improve clinical outcomes of patients with CAD
  • Implement patient treatment strategies based on an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of available stent and scaffolding technologies
  • Analyze emerging stent and scaffolding technologies and assess how best to use these technologies to improve patient outcomes
Accreditation Statement

The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Designation Statement

The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
