Description The Scripps Cardiomyopathy and Cardio-Oncology Symposium is designed to provide a state-of-the-art, comprehensive, case-based curriculum that addresses important clinical topics relevant to cardiomyopathy and cardiovascular health of cancer survivors. Cardio-oncology is a growing field that has great importance as newly developed cancer treatments improve cancer survival rates but can be associated with cardiovascular toxicities. Similarly cardiac amyloidosis is a burgeoning disease with exciting new treatments. The program is intended for those involved in the care of patients with cardiomyopathies, diastolic heart failure, chemotherapy or radiation induced heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, and cardiomyopathy related arrhythmic diseases. Nationally recognized faculty will cover challenging heart failure topics related to common cardiomyopathies, role of hemodynamic testing, latest structural heart therapies, ventricular assist devices and transplantation, cardio-oncology, cardiac imaging, electrophysiology, and genomics. The goal of the conference is for participants to return to their practice equipped with the latest evidence base and practical information to improve patient care. Educational Objectives After attending this live activity, participants should be able to: • Assess the risks of oncologic treatment-related cardiac dysfunction for patients who have undergone therapy for cancer. • Implement strategies for early detection, correction of cardiac risk factors, and close and long-term cardiac monitoring in order to reduce the effects of cardiotoxicity for patients who are at risk of cancer treatment-related cardiac dysfunction, including heart failure, valvular dysfunction and autonomic dysfunction. • Recognize potential cardiovascular complications of novel molecular targeted therapies, including arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, cardiac ischemia, and hypertension. • Critically evaluate multi-modality imaging such as cardiac magnetic resonance (MR), echocardiography, and nuclear imaging including positron emission tomography (PET) scanning in the diagnosis and follow-up of cardiomyopathy. • Describe patient selection for advanced diagnostics for dyspnea. • Identify common clinical and diagnostic criteria that would prompt a detailed pulmonary hypertension evaluation. • Apply recommendations from the recently updated ACC/AHA/Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) guidelines when diagnosing and managing patients with cardiomyopathy. • Discuss the latest diagnosis and treatment options available for cardiac amyloidosis. • Incorporate guidelines and algorithms for the evaluation and management of patients with syncope, sudden cardiac death, and cardiac sarcoidosis based on current recommendations from the ACC/AHA/Heart Rhythm Society (HRS). • Evaluate available clinical evidence for recommendations for the management of cardiovascular disease during pregnancy. • Identify patients who would benefit from implantable pulmonary artery sensor monitoring. • Illustrate the importance of the multidisciplinary cardio-oncology team.

Sep 27, 2019 | CEH 6.00 | La Jolla, California
The Global Nurses: Caring For The Global Community is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Sep 27, 2019 at Sheraton La Jolla Hotel, La Jolla, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6 CEHs. Course Description: As a nurse, maybe you work in the same community in which you were born and raised. Or, maybe you’ve traveled to your current facility from another neighborhood, another state, or another region of the world. In all these cases, nurses reflect the communities they care for. As patient populations become increasingly diverse, nurses combine on-the-ground community knowledge with the global perspective that’s needed to care for their patients. This course will examine the role of RNs as global citizens. We will investigate how the nursing profession responds to an international “crisis of care” by pitting the values advocacy and compassion against the exploitative systems their patients face every day. From a historical standpoint, we will explore the ethical challenges and solutions that nurses have faced since the inception of the profession. We will also draw more modern comparisons between RNs and other global caring professions in order to understand how nurses are part of a broader struggle for care, health equity, and justice. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Identify how global migration patterns shape patient and caregiver communities. • Explain how the nursing profession responds to the needs of a global crisis in care. • Enumerate the social and economic conditions faced by over 19 million nurses across the globe. • Articulate why the public holds trust and faith in nurses and how nurse ethics can continue to foster confidence in the profession. • Describe the connections between RNs and other care professionals who form a global movement for care justice.
