Statement of Need

Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the United States resulting in a huge burden on healthcare dollars and an enormous challenge for healthcare providers and systems to deliver quality care. Rapidly changing patterns of cardiovascular care require the cardiovascular team, consisting of physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, fellows/residents, technicians, and administrators, to have the latest science and practice guidelines in order to provide high quality, safe, and efficient patient-centered care.

Overall Goal

The overall goal of this activity is to provide learners with evidence driven, team-based, and multi-specialty approaches to improve patient care and gain knowledge and competency in the areas of ischemic heart disease, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia, antiplatelet/anticoagulation therapy, cardio-oncology, and neuro-cardiology; to increase learner competence in diagnosing challenging clinical cases understanding the current state of advanced therapies under clinical development in the effort to improve patient outcomes; to provide strategies and platforms for telehealth to improve patient practice patterns; and to increase awareness of the impact of pending and current state legislation on the practice of cardiology and the citizens of Michigan.
