2019 Cardiovascular Medicine and Prevention Update for Primary Care
Practice Gaps and Needs
Cardiovascular medicine is a vast area of clinical practice with a continually rapid expansion of knowledge, guidelines, best practices and new technology. Physicians 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. Several national guidelines that help clinicians establish best practices have been modified and refined in the last year. The implications of these new guidelines and their utilization will be a major topic of discussion in this symposium.
There is an ongoing evolution of care for patients with ventricular dysfunction. Another segment of the symposium will focus on several aspects of treating patients with ventricular dysfunction. A frequently overlooked area of treatment is the pulmonary hypertension that ventricular dysfunction produces and how to manage it. In addition, the rapidly emerging area of cardio-oncology which seeks to treat and prevent cardiac dysfunction from chemotherapeutic agents is an emerging area of importance. Practice management, particularly of patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, a particular problem of the elderly, will be addressed.
Cardiac arrhythmias remain a source of continued evolution as technology evolves, now to the point that patients may be wearing their own devices that detect arrhythmias. A segment on arrhythmias will address this issue discussing how to manage these patients when they bring their own data. Additional modifications of the atrial fibrillation guidelines are expected to be available by the time of the symposium, with particular emphasis on utilization of anticoagulation agents. These new results, which fulfill another practice gap in our knowledge about treating patients with atrial fibrillation, will be discussed, along with the interpretation of the multitude of different types of ambulatory monitoring devices.
Several practice related topics continue to perplex and challenge primary care providers. One area is that of complementary medicine. How do these self-administered medications fit into the entire plan of patient care? Can they be harmful to the heart? Additionally, the perplexing problem of continual focus on diets present constant problems for primary care providers. Several other topics of increasing importance present in primary care practices: the congenital heart disease patient seeking ongoing care, the geriatric patient with persistent hypertension and the ongoing debate of where aspirin fits in in primary prevention will topics of discussion in the breakout sessions.
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, and medical knowledge.
This activity also focuses on the Interprofessional competencies of roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication, and teams/teamwork.
At the conclusion of the activity, the healthcare team will be able to:
- Identify best practices for the treatment of hypertension both in the elderly and across the entire age spectrum.
- Review new guidelines and identify best practices for anticoagulation of patients with atrial arrhythmias.
- Discuss the implications of patient initiated activities such as self-monitoring for arrhythmias, self-directed diets and self-directed use of nontraditional complementary medications and therapies.
- Describe the implications of the new guidelomes for treatment of cholesterold and various lipid abnormalities.
- Review new and evolving information on the role of aspirin in primary prevention.
- Explain the results and implications of data produced by various types of ambulatory monitoring devices.
- Distinguish the new areas of management of patients with heart failure who have pulmonary hypertension secondary to their underlying LV dysfunction, left ventricular and right ventricular dysfunction secondary to chemotherapeutic therapies for cancer and patients who have classic symptoms of heart failure despite having a normal ejection fracture.
