Cardio-Metabolic Summit 2014

Program Learning Objectives

By participating in this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the current management gaps in the treatment of patients with cardiovascular and metabolic disorders.
  2. Translate evidence-based strategies for prevention, screening, and treatment of cardio-metabolic risk factors and their co-morbidities to individual patient management.
  3. Identify which interventions, including lifestyle changes and various therapies alone and in combination, are most appropriate for particular patients based on their risk profiles.
  4. Apply optimal strategies for the management of hyperglycemia in patients with individual characteristics, including the elderly and patients with renal dysfunction.
  5. Identify how novel and emerging therapies can be integrated into clinical practice to reduce morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular and metabolic disease.
  6. Apply the updated Canadian Clinical Practice Guidelines in the context of comprehensive, multi-factorial cardiovascular and metabolic risk reduction strategies to the clinical care of high-risk patients.
