This CME/CE program, derived from content presented at the 2019 American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, will highlight advanced strategies for improving cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes in patients with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD) and peripheral artery disease (PAD). The expert faculty, chaired by Dr. Christopher P. Cannon, will first provide an introduction and state of the science of CAD and PAD, and transition into a review of the role of anticoagulants in preventive cardiology. Recent clinical trial data, particularly that of anticoagulants and aspirin combination therapeutic strategies, will be reviewed as it relates to clinical decision making for healthcare professionals. Finally, the interactive panel will cover the role of the interprofessional team in providing optimal, tailored treatment plans to improve CVD outcomes and quality of life for patients with CAD and PAD.
Cardiologists, primary care providers, nurses, NPs, PAs, pharmacists, and other members of an interprofessional care team involved in the management of CAD/PAD
II. The Role of Anticoagulants in Preventive Cardiology in CAD/PAD
III. A Clinical Update on Newer Trial Data for Anticoagulants + Aspirin Combination Therapeutic Strategies for the Treatment of CAD/PAD
IV. Interactive Panel Discussion
V. Developing Optimal Treatment Plans that Prevent Cardiovascular Events in Patients with CAD/PAD
VI. Interactive Panel Discussion
- Recognize the role of anticoagulants in preventive cardiology in CAD/PAD
- Analyze the most current data for anticoagulants + aspirin combination therapeutic strategies for the treatment of CV events in CAD/PAD
- Develop collaborative treatment strategies to prevent cardiovascular events in patients with CAD/PAD
