Session Information: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of mortality. There are many risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing CVD. There are many diagnostic tests which help identify patients at risk and those with CVD requiring intervention. It is important for providers to accurately identify and treat/refer without over-testing/treating. This seminar will discuss risk factors for CVD as well as discuss the different types of tools available for diagnosis. The focus will be on providing information to determine the appropriateness of testing prior to referring and/or treating a patient.
Additional seminars are currently being planned. Further information will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
