Cardiovascular Medicine and Prevention Update for Primary Care 2021

April 16, 2021

Practice Gaps and Needs

Cardiovascular medicine is a vast area of clinical practice with continually evolving and developing research, guidelines, best practices, and new medication and technology.  Primary care teams including physicians, advanced practice providers and pharmacists 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 that help these care teams establish best practices continue to be refined every year.  The implications of these new guidelines and new medications and their utilization will be a major topic of discussion.

The implications of stress test results in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) will be addressed.  We will focus on updated prevention measures including management of hypertension, a long-standing risk factor for CAD, as well as the perplexing topic of diets and new drugs that might improve outcomes for patients with metabolic syndrome. 

Accurate diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, particularly atrial fibrillation and flutter, is a common area of concern for primary care physicians and advanced practice providers.  Although common, some drug therapies have significant toxicities.  Updated information regarding cardioversion, a common method of treating atrial arrhythmias, and its effectiveness will be reviewed as well as ablation therapy.  Ablation therapy is now a more mature therapeutic option, though data regarding the longitudinal effectiveness of this therapy has altered the perception as to who is a good candidate for this treatment modality. Additionally, we will address the role of SGLT2 inhibitors.  Finally, we will examine current and evolving information regarding COVID in cardiovascular medicine.

Target 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 American Board of Medical Specialties' areas of patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, and interprofessional and communication skills.

This activity focuses on the Interprofessional competencies of roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication, and teams/teamwork.

This activity also focuses on the Center for Advancement of Pharmacy Education (CAPE) competency of interprofessional collaboration.

Learning Objectives

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

  1. Identify best practices for the treatment of hypertension both in the elderly and across the entire age spectrum.
  2. Discuss implications of patient initiated activities such as self-directed diets.
  3. Assess the implications of the new guidelines for treatment of cholesterol and various lipid abnormalities in children.
  4. Summarize new guidelines and identify best practices for drug and device therapy for patients with atrial arrhythmias.
  5. Outline new and evolving information on the role of SGLT2 inhibitors.
  6. Discuss implications of stress test results in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).
  7. Examine current and evolving data and research pertaining to COVID in cardiovascular medicine.
