Cardiovascular Medicine: An Overview

This course will provide delegates with a review of current treatment regimes and guidelines in selected areas of cardiovascular medicine. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how cardiovascular clinical trial results influence prescribing. Our experienced speakers will discuss the strengths, limitations, and the actual and/or potential impact, of key clinical trials on prescribing practice. Patient presentations and treatment algorithms will provide worked examples to reinforce the lecture content.

Detailed consideration will be given to a number of disease areas, including dyslipidaemias, myocardial infarction (MI), heart failure and vascular disease. Clinical trials investigating current treatments for these diseases, including statins, ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers and anti-platelet therapy, will be analysed and examples will be drawn from primary and secondary care.

The programme will conclude with an overview of the challenge of using the evidence base in developing future strategies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.
