    2nd Annual Critical Issues in Vascular Disease: A Multidisciplinary Approach

    Friday, May 29, 2015

    Course Location:
    Bluemle Life Sciences Building
    Thomas Jefferson University
    233 South 10th Street
    Philadelphia PA, 19107

    The 2nd Annual Critical Issues in Vascular Disease: A Multidisciplinary Approach offers participants a unique opportunity to witness experts deliberate and debate how they would manage patients with venous diseases. This active learning format features critical deliberations regarding patient cases, clinical findings, differential diagnoses and management plan options. Participants will examine cases from multiple perspectives, and gain in-depth understanding to how experienced healthcare providers approach difficult patient care decisions. Keynote lectures from leading clinicians and pharmacists provide evidence for care decisions discussed in panels and will allow participants to observe and question faculty clinicians as they deal with real patient problems and demonstrate how to apply new information and evidence based guidelines into their practices.

    This course will evaluate the recent advances in diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to vascular disorders that have altered traditional management paradigms. The latest evidence-based guidelines will be reviewed and practitioners will be provided with an array of contemporary management elements with which to approach patients with vascular disease.

    Case Presentations will focus on venous disease topics including:

    • Pulmonary Embolism
    • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
    • Chronic Limb Ischemia
    • Deep Vein Thrombosis
