This program is designed for internists, primary care practitioners, emergency room physicians, advanced nurse clinicians and others involved in the care of patients with cardiac conditions.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
♥ Review who and when to screen for Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD). Examine current treatment options available for PVD.
♥ Discuss the diagnostic approach to several unusual cardiac cases, examine how their decision making compares to other clinicians and be honestly able to say they had a lot of fun!
♥ Review the existing literature about vitamin D and health, discuss the current guidelines for Vitamin D supplementation, examine the rationale for vitamin D supplementation in a healthy population, and review the role of vitamin D in vascular health.
♥ Review systolic and diastolic heart failure, determine diagnosis and management for CHF, and discuss the goals of therapy for CHF.
♥ Review goals of therapy, discuss patient selection for cardiac transplantation, and relate patient selection of mechanical circulatory support.
♥ Examine where your energy is being wasted, discuss that most every illness has its underlying roots (aches, pain tiredness, etc.) with toxicity, and relate why the hot water bottle needs to be resurrected.
♥ Analyze current thinking of the benefits of regular exercise, review how much is enough? Determine if it is ever too late to start?
The John N. Wilson, MD Lectureship in Cardiovascular Diseases was established in 1985 in recognition of the extraordinary medical and humanitarian achievements of John N. Wilson, MD.
