Cardiology Continuing Education

Stay Informed While Earning Cardiology CME Credits

 

The field of cardiology is rapidly evolving, driven by advances in drugs and technologies that have the potential to improve the cardiovascular care of their patients. Digital health tools connect primary care providers with cardiologists, help patients better communicate with their provider and use health information to manage their care.  However, with these improvements come challenges as cardiologists and their care teams work to stay current with the therapeutic advances, field questions from their patients, and analyze an exploding volume of data available to improve the quality of care. The Cardiology Education Hub aims to provide the education, resources, and access to digital health tools necessary to meet these challenges.

Call to Action for Health Equity: Racial Disparities in the Care of Patients with Cardiometabolic Disease

 

Participate Now  

This CME Outfitters OnDemand webcast will focus on identifying structural and social determinants of health (SDOH) and clinician biases that place minority patients at risk for poorer outcomes in cardiovascular disease and implementing health care practices to improve these outcomes.

Weighing the Evidence: A Pharmacy Approach to Stroke Prevention in Obese Patients with Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation

 

Participate Now  

In this CME Outfitters On Demand webcast, expert faculty review key aspects of the prescribing information, guidelines, and recently published safety and efficacy data for DOACs and warfarin in order to enable pharmacists and other clinicians to support evidence-based therapeutic treatment decisions in obese patients with NVAF.

Keeping the Beat: Screening and Management of High-Risk Patients with Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation

 

Participate Now  

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia, projected to affect 12 million Americans by 2030. However, a significant number of AF cases, particularly non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) remain undiagnosed, putting patients at risk for severe cardiovascular (CV) complications, including increased risk of stroke. This CME Outfitters OnDemand webcast features expert faculty addressing the impact of undiagnosed NVAF, the benefit and use of screening tools for early detection, best practices for optimizing screening, implementing oral anticoagulant therapy for stroke prevention, and the use of digital health technologies, with a goal of fostering collaborative care and optimizing patient outcomes.

Hearing a Heartbeat from Miles Away: Remote Detection of Undiagnosed AF

 

Participate Now  

The first episode of this CME Outfitters BriefCase series will focus on AF screening techniques and tools and how best to utilize them when providing care via telemedicine.

From Bedside to Webside: Providing Optimal Care for NVAF Patients via Telemedicine

 

Participate Now  

This CME Outfitters BriefCase focuses on managing patients with NVAF via telemedicine, including discussion on treatment, clinical efficacy and safety of oral anticoagulants, selecting appropriate anticoagulation at the appropriate dose, applying the latest recommendations for patients who have undergone PCI, and how to implement best practices for a “webside manner” when providing virtual, telemedicine care.

Can You Hear Me Now? Engaging Patients in Virtual Shared Decision-Making

 

Participate Now  

The final installment of this CME Outfitters BriefCase series focuses on patient education and SDM when providing care via telemedicine, including use of digital decision aids and electronic resources to assist with SDM, developing individualized treatment plans, overcoming social health care disparities, building trust with patients in a virtual care setting, and reinforcing the importance of adherence and persistence to prescribed therapy.

Cutting Through Comorbidities: Clearing the Way to Appropriate Anticoagulant Therapy in Patients at Risk for Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism

 

Participate Now
