Goal:
This activity is being planned for an audience of both cardiology and oncology physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses and pharmacists. Cardiovascular disease and cancer are the number 1 and 2 causes of death respectively in the United States. Both cardiology and oncology are rapidly evolving fields that often do not intersect in terms of their educational and training programs. With the development of new targeted cancer therapeutics all with unique cardiovascular toxicities, health care providers must be knowledgeable of both. There is not a consensus on how to diagnose, monitor, or even treat cardiovascular side effects of cancer and cancer therapeutics. This activity is designed to update health care providers on the new cancer therapeutics and a practical approach to diagnosing and treating the cardiovascular adverse events. The expected outcome will be that healthcare providers at other institutions and in the community will be able to recognize and manage cardiovascular disease in cancer patients more effectively.

Educational Objectives:
• Demonstrate comprehensive knowledge of the cardiovascular toxicities from traditional chemotherapeutics and newer targeted cancer therapies (Knowledge, Competence, Patient Outcomes)
• Utilize cardiovascular imaging modalities for monitoring and diagnosing cancer therapeutic cardiotoxicity (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes)
• Practice routine treatment of cardiac disease concurrently during cancer diagnosis and therapy (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes)
• Diagnose and manage pericardial disease in the cancer patient (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes)
• Manage cardiac arrhythmias and devices in a specialized way specific to the cancer patient (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes)

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
