Significant advances in the diagnosis and management of heart failure and arrhythmias continue to emerge, compelling the practice of cardiology to constantly evolve. These advances must be consistently implemented into clinical practice to guarantee the best care for patients affected by these cardiovascular conditions. Expert faculty will cover a wide range of topics including the diagnosis, management, and state-of-the-art treatment for heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, hypertension, cardiomyopathy, and women’s cardiovascular disease. Faculty will also cover a variety of co-morbid and chronic conditions patients with heart disease may face. The goal of the conference is for participants to return to their practice equipped with the latest evidence base and practical information to improve patient outcomes.
