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.

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.
