This two-day continuing medical education symposium will center on the nuts and bolts of everyday care for patients with cardiovascular diseases, and present new ideas for tailoring the most appropriate treatment plan for each individual. Focus will be placed on gauging and monitoring therapy, including recognizing symptoms, evaluating risk factors, guiding treatment through imaging, general and functional testing, and appropriate therapy. Unlike most programs, this will be delivered as a case-based approach. In other words, how would I manage a diabetic patient with these lipid levels? Case examples make the lectures more relevant to everyday practitioners. Working with the most current data from recent evidence-based medicine studies as well as new guidelines, the invited faculty will discuss options for patients with many types of cardiovascular disease, including coronary disease, heart failure, structural heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes, and atrial fibrillation. The overall goal of this series is to provide an overview of the optimal methods and management of the informed physician’s practice, and to discuss and debate the exciting options on the horizon.
