Jared's Test Course

Middleton, WI US
April 25, 2018 to April 26, 2018

Practice Gaps and Needs

Cardiovascular medicine is a vast area of clinical practice with a continually rapid expansion of knowledge and practice standards. Physicians are challenged to determine best practices for management of atrial fibrillation including controlling the rhythm, eliminating the problem, and reducing the risk of stroke and other embolic events, all of which have been identified in updated guidelines. The UW has been active in developing new local guidelines and new local pathways of care that will be directly discussed during the meeting.

Major professional societies have issued new guidelines addressing new therapies for the treatment of hypertension. Developments in this field have been controversial. A session on prevention will focus on these new guidelines and their relevance to practice. We also plan to update clinicians on best practices for other techniques of cardiovascular prevention. Another session updates clinicians on new developments in therapy, particularly surgical based therapy for certain cardiovascular diseases. New developments in how to use diagnostic testing for cardiovascular disease have emphasized appropriate use. Multiple new drugs have been released for the treatment of diabetes in the last two years. This is a very rapidly expanding area which is difficult for the primary care practitioner to stay informed of given the rapid expansion of new therapies. We will focus on one aspect of these new drugs and evaluate the issue as to whether some pharmacologic treatments can help prevent future heart disease.   This educational activity aims to bridge the gaps that exist from the rapid expansion of knowledge and practice standards.

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 medical therapy of hypertension and heart failure while maximizing effectiveness and minimizing drug interactions.

2. Review best practices for treating atrial fibrillation and preventing secondary consequences of this problem.

3. Discuss best practices for treating syncope.

4. Describe best practices for effective use of all lipid-lowering pharmacotherapy now available to treat hyperlipidemia.

5. Explain how much exercise is potentially helpful versus harmful for patients with heart disease.

6. List cardiovascular medications that are most vulnerable to drug interactions and the potential harm to a cardiac patient.

7. Compare and contrast the potential role of new innovations in pacemaker therapy, cardiac surgery and cardiac device placement for patients with various types of heart disease.

8. Summarize the outcomes of various types of cardiac imaging.
