Learning Objectives

  • Address the persistent sex-specific gaps found in guidelines, recommendations and prevention of cardiovascular disease strategies for women, and recognize diagnostic and therapeutic adherence.
  • Recognize the risk factors associated with asymptomatic carotid atherosclerotic disease, and examine the evidence that supports a conservative approach to carotid revascularization in asymptomatic patients.
  • Interpret and implement current guidelines on utilization of cholesterol lowering therapy to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • Examine and implement the National Lipid Association recommendations for patient-centered management of dyslipidemia.
  • Cite the clinical trial evidence supporting the use of omega-3 fatty acids in cardiovascular disease prevention
  • Review the randomized clinical trials currently evaluating the incremental benefit of adding omega-3 fatty acids to statin therapy in high-risk patients with elevated triglycerides.
  • Examine the evidence that reveals how meditation promotes health and well-being.
  • Implement strategies to effectively motivate smoking cessation behaviors in patients, and examine pharmacologic options for smoking cessation therapies.
  • Implement practical treatment protocols for the management of obesity from the point of view of the practicing physician.
  • Explain the role of bariatric surgery and its impact in obese individuals diagnosed with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
  • Initiate effective patient education discussions about the minimal level of exercise needed for improved health.
  • Recognize components of the optimal diet for cardiovascular health, and explain the scientific evidence behind popular weight loss diets.
  • Recognize the key differences and controversies among the multitude of hypertension practice guidelines, and discuss the different rationales for variable BP goals.
  • Examine the formal evidence from the FOURIER trial, and explain how targeted treatment at PCSK9 inhibition confers additional cardiovascular benefits beyond lipid-lowering treatment alone.
  • Examine the current results of the CANTOS study and explain how targeting inflammation produces a direct benefit on patient outcomes.
  • Examine the impact of adding empagliflozin to standard care of type 2 diabetes patients who are at high risk for cardiovascular events.
  • Evaluate the implications of the absence of coronary artery calcium (CAC) in reclassifying patients from a risk stratum in which statins are recommended to one in which they are not.
  • Examine statin-associated muscular adverse events, and explain how such events are typically temporal due to the initiation of statin therapy.  
  • Describe and recognize the usefulness of stress testing in patients with suspected coronary artery disease.
  • Examine the role of coronary computed tomographic angiography as a diagnostic tool in the evaluation of patients with chest pain.
  • Recognize the strong association atrial fibrillation has with other cardiovascular diseases in order to properly manage, diagnose and treat.
  • Examine prevention, reversal and treatment strategies for heart failure, considering medical and surgical options.
  • Assess the long-term vital prognosis of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysmal disease or peripheral artery disease to determine possible differences in survival, prognostic risk profiles and causes of death.
  • Examine the primary causes of aortic stenosis, its progression and risks, and recognize the diagnostic tests and treatment options available.
