Scoring Key: 5=Strongly Agree 4=Agree 3=Neutral 2=Disagree 1=Strongly Disagree 0=Not applicable to my practice
Apply state-of-the-art echocardiography in the modern echo laboratory in order to optimize clinical decision making.
Implement evidence-based best practice protocols when assessing patients undergoing echocardiographic studies for most all of the following (Doppler Hemodynamics, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathy, pericardial disease, native and prosthetic valve endocarditis, 3D echo, contrast echo, 3D cardiac mechanics, ejection fraction and strain measurements, echo in atrial fibrillation, cardiac remodeling in obesity, congenital heart disease).
Recognize the usefulness and limitations of imaging techniques, and examine the clinical significance of recent emerging advances in echocardiography research.
Communicate more effectively within a cross-functional team, following the principles of advanced care management (ACM), to make the vision of value-based care a reality.
Scoring key: 5=Very effective, 4= Effective, 3= Somewhat effective, 2= Slightly effective, 1= Completely Ineffective Speakers are listed according to the lecture schedule.
