CANCELLED: Cardiovascular Medicine and Prevention Update for Primary Care

Madison, WI US
March 20, 2020

THIS ACTIVITY HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Due to an increase in respiratory illness and the rise of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), UWMadison ICEP is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, AAMC, State and local Public Health, UW Health and Campus guidelines regarding our in-person accredited activities. 

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 clinicians 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.

This symposium will address new information regarding implications of stress test results in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) as well as ongoing advances in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) care, particularly for patients who receive advanced life support care in the field and are subsequently admitted to the hospital thru the emergency department.  We will focus on prevention measures including new information regarding management of hypertension, a long-standing risk factor for CAD, as well as the perplexing topic of diets, high intensity exercise and new drugs that might improve outcomes for patients with metabolic syndrome.  Patients with CAD commonly develop heart failure and chronic ventricular dysfunction, which can be managed with cardiac rehabilitation, a seemingly underutilized option that will be addressed.  These topics highlight substantial knowledge gaps particularly among primary care physicians. 

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.  Another topic of discussion will be ablation therapy, 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.  Breakout sessions regarding electrocardiogram interpretation will be offered to help facilitate accurate interpretations of arrhythmias and other electrocardiogram related findings.  Finally, medication adherence, particularly with more complex drugs such as anti-arrhythmia or heart failure medications remains an ongoing barrier, as does the cost of these medications, both of which will be addressed in a breakout session.  Several new findings have also been released in the last year regarding the evolution of treatment for heart valve disease. Most important is mitral regurgitation and aortic stenosis, which will be reviewed to update providers on new knowledge from recent trials and guidelines.

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, and medical knowledge.

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

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. Review new guidelines and identify best practices for drug and device therapy for patients with atrial arrhythmias.
  3. Discuss the implications of patient initiated activities such as self-directed diets and exercise training.
  4. Describe the implications of the new guidelines for treatment of cholesterol and various lipid abnormalities in children.
  5. Review new and evolving information on the role of medication adherence.
  6. Explain the results and implications of new data on valve disease treatment.
  7. Distinguish the new areas of management of patients with coronary artery disease in acute and chronic situations.
  8. Demonstrate knowledge of interpretation of ECGs.
