Statement of Need
While cardiovascular care is rapidly evolving due to new technologies and treatment options, healthcare providers need to be aware of the new heath care environment in which they practice as well as knowledge of the past advances and technologies which contributed to the current standards of optimal cardiovascular care. Healthcare providers need periodic educational updates on emerging clinical trials and advances in patient management to provide optimal care. Knowledge and competencies learned from case scenarios applicable to daily practice and changes to practice guidelines, will allow them to apply evidence-based research to their patient management decisions.
The overall goal of this activity is to increase learner competence by discovering strategies to anticipate research-driven changes in practice, to enhance professional growth, and to demonstrate efficacy in team based patient care practice as new clinical approaches and technologies change. The Indiana Chapter-ACC Annual Meeting will include education that provides needs-based learning covering a thorough overview of health care legislation and regulations, cardio-oncology, atrial fibrillation, the latest cardiovascular technology, and improving performance by using appropriate guidelines based treatment.
Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to:
Adult Cardiologists, Pediatric Cardiologists, Cardiothoracic Surgeons, Cardiology Fellows-in-Training, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists
