Primary Care: Advances in Cardiovascular and Diabetes Management
As the treatment of cardiovascular disease continues to evolve with advances in testing, screening and available treatments this online curriculum provides the latest evidence-based, best practice recommendations to identify patients at highest risk for developing cardiovascular disease to prevent advance illness and to develop comprehensive treatment plans for recently diagnosed patients to optimize patient care.
Obesity, cardiovascular disease prevention, hypertension management remain population health concerns for our patient populations and staying abreast of literature and its implications to treatment is an imperative for providers.
Baptist Health CME Program’s cardiovascular disease prevention online curriculum was developed to address the educational needs of providers and employees related to the risk assessment, screening, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
The primary care practitioner has the special and important responsibility to diagnose and manage patients with every category of ailment, injury and disease. This course will provide practical, evidence-based strategies to strengthen healthcare competencies. Expert faculty will explain recent advances in diagnosis, management and treatment and address compelling issues as they relate to cardiovascular disease, stable coronary artery disease, preoperative cardiovascular risk and diabetes treatment in the primary care setting.
