Cardiovascular Disease remains the leading cause of death and morbidity in the United States despite substantial gains in diagnostics, prevention, and treatment. Cardiovascular healthcare providers are challenged to determine and recommend the best diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic strategies for their patients.
Gaps exist in the knowledge and capabilities of clinicians and allied health care personnel, making it difficult for them to recommend preventive strategies to reduce the burden of cardiovascular diseases and their consequences. This CME program will focus on major opportunities to improve cardiovascular health by optimizing diagnosis, prevention and therapy.
The 33rd Annual URMC Cardiology for Clinicians Symposium plans to go well beyond literature and guideline reviews to provide seasoned expert judgements, discussions of key advances, and recommendations of state of the art cardiovascular care that clinicians require and their patients expect. URMC's foremost cardiovascular clinicians lead the program's lectures, Q & A, case presentations and interactive breakout sessions.
