Cardiovascular medicine is one of the most highly evolved clinical fields in the practice of medicine, with primary care clinicians frequently being the frontline cardiovascular care providers. To get superb outcomes, clinicians at the front line need to have a solid map of the territory they are helping their patients navigate. The increasing complexity of diagnostic and treatment modalities has made it more challenging for primary care providers to deal with many cardiac conditions. Join us to hear our panel of experts cover the major aspects of ambulatory cardiovascular care that are germane to a primary care practice. In addition to the comprehensive overview of common cardiovascular conditions, this symposium will focus on the importance of a team-based approach for managing patients with cardiovascular disease, emphasizing the benefits in terms of patient access, remote monitoring and adhering to guidelines and evidence-based medicine to produce superior outcomes and greater value.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this symposium, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify signs and symptoms of cardiovascular diseases commonly seen in the primary care setting.
  • Recognize and perform the correct initial diagnostic evaluation of patients presenting with common cardiovascular symptoms.
  • Appropriately refer patients to subspecialty clinical programs, consultant services or acute care settings for evaluation and disease management.

Who Should Attend

Primary care physicians, family physicians, general internists, cardiologists, hospitalists, advanced practice providers, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians and respiratory therapists.

Registration and Fees

This live virtual symposium is offered free of charge.
