2024 Cardiovascular Medicine Update for Primary Care - Hybrid Symposium

Madison, WI US
April 12, 2024

Join us for this year's Cardiovascular Medicine Update for Primary Care on Friday, April 12, 2024 at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin . We are pleased to offer this conference in a hybrid format. Learners will be able to select the virtual live-stream option at registration. Fellow healthcare providers will discuss updates in cardiovascular medicine including best practices, guideline updates, developing research, treatments, and disparities in cardiovascular care.

Cardiovascular medicine is a vast area of clinical practice with continually evolving and developing research, guidelines, best practices, and new medications and technology. Primary care providers are challenged to optimally manage a multitude of diseases involving the cardiovascular system including the failing heart, the heart with abnormal arrhythmias and the circulation affected by abnormal cholesterol metabolism and hypertension. National guidelines helping clinicians establish best practices are refined annually.                                                                                                        

This will be a review of best practices on several topics commonly seen by primary care providers including implications of new guidelines, hypertension updates, results of preventive cardiology trials, AFib prevention measures including addressing and treating modifiable risk factors in people diagnosed with AFib, updates in heart failure management and medications, syncope evaluation, pacemaker and ICD considerations, and ordering appropriate stress tests. Breakout sessions include cardiovascular healthcare disparities, cardio-obstetrics, and common e-consult cases.

Intended Audience

This activity is designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, nurses and other allied health personnel working in the field of primary care who treat and evaluate patients in need of prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Elements of Competence

This CE activity has been designed to improve learner competence and focuses on the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and American Association of Colleges of Nursing areas of patient care and procedural skills, practice-based learning and improvement, systems-based practice, providing patient/person-centered care and medical knowledge.

This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competency of teams/teamwork and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion competency of addressing healthcare disparities

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the activity, the healthcare team will be able to:

  1. Identify when to refer and/or treat patients with common cardiovascular conditions and how to collaboratively manage a wide range of treatments and ailments.     
  2. Examine best practices and updates for cardiovascular conditions commonly seen by primary care providers.         
  3. Discuss AFib prevention measures including addressing and treating modifiable risk factors in people diagnosed with AFib, hypertension updates, and takeaways from the top preventive cardiology trials.
  4. Summarize updates in heart failure management and medications.
  5. Evaluate syncope, pacemaker and ICD considerations for your patients, and appropriate stress testing: which monitors to use for which patients.
