2nd Annual Critical Issues in Vascular Disease: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Friday, May 29, 2015
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 vascular 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.
