ACTIVITY TITLE:

Who Best to Stem the Cardiometabolic Tsunami - Cardiology, Endocrinology and Primary Care

ACTIVITY DATE:

November 19-20, 2020 | Live Online

TARGET AUDIENCE

The Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) is designed for advanced level clinicians responsible for the prevention, diagnosis, and management of cardiometabolic risk including cardiologists, endocrinologists, diabetologists, lipidologists, pharmacists, primary care clinicians (PCPs), nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), and other allied health professionals.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

While a substantial body of research demonstrates the need to address the global epidemic of metabolic syndrome, and the constellation of associated cardiometabolic risk factors simultaneously, the majority of them are still treated as separate entities.

During this engaging and interactive CMHC Live Online meeting, you will have a chance to hear from and interact with experts across specialties on the current state of affairs and advances in cardiometabolic disease including team based-care, telemedicine, cardio-renal risk reduction, obesity management, and much more.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Discuss the interrelationships among cardiometabolic risk factors and their impact on the development of cardiometabolic diseases, including diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, kidney disease, and cardiovascular disease
  • Interpret the latest evidence and guidelines about the role of SGLT-2is and GLP-1 RAs in addressing cardiometabolic risk in patients with and without T2DM.
  • Describe the efficacy and safety of foundational and newer therapies for heart failure and dyslipidemia.
  • Outline strategies aimed at timely screening and prevention of cardiometabolic disease, including hypertension, blood glucose, and lipid control, as well as overweight and obesity management.
  • Develop individualized treatment regimens for patients with cardiometabolic disease based on the efficacy and safety of current and new pharmacotherapies, patient comorbidities and preferences, and multi-disciplinary care strategies in order to optimize outcomes.
  • Review the impact of technology and remote monitoring devices, including home blood pressure and continuous glucose monitors in ensuring the continuum of care for cardiometabolic patients in the COVID-19 era.
  • List specific updates in telemedicine services, billing, and legal implications as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Incorporate technology and remote monitoring when appropriate to ensure the continuum of care for patients with cardiometabolic diseases in the COVID-19 era.
