Improving the Cardiovascular Health of the Population—Everything the modern clinician needs to know (LATAM)

EAS Office · September 1, 2021

Welcome!

This programme has been created by EAS with the busy modern clinician in mind.

Our aim is to help clinicians better assess and manage the cardiovascular risk of their patients, through a curriculum of 15-min on-demand presentations and live online case-based activities and webinars. The programme’s short-module format makes it easy for the time-pressed practitioner to complete their studies in their own time.

The speakers each present essential information and the very latest findings from research and clinical trials, and talk about what these data mean for everyday clinical practice.

Getting started

We recommend participants to start with the on-demand modules before joining the live online events.

Start here: 15-min modules to inform your everyday practice

We recommend that participants begin the programme with these six on-demand modules.

The modules look into two important topics, rapidly evolving and highly relevant to the modern clinician:

The assessment of clinical need and implementation of current guidelines

The first three modules cover key points from recent guidelines and how to implement them in your practice (Module 1: Guidelines); the challenges in existing approaches (Module 2: Real World Data); the safety and importance of maintaining low LDL-C (Module 3: Safety of low LDL-C);

Special consideration of high-risk populations

Modules 4-6 look into the importance of more intensive LDL-C lowering with combination therapies in specific high-risk populations (Module 4: Familial Hypercholesterolaemia , FH; Module 5: Acute Coronary Syndrome, ACS; Module 6: Other High-risk Populations).


In each module, the essential points and most up-to-date findings are summarised in a 15-minute presentation by a leading EAS expert. After watching the talk, participants then complete two multiple choice questions on each topic. Participants completing all six modules gain a Certificate of Achievement, which they can download.

Webinars: What recent clinical trials say about lipid lowering, and what that means for your practice

Welcome to a new webinar in the EAS Programme “Improving the Cardiovascular Health of the Population – everything the modern clinician needs to know”.

In this webinar our expert presenters – Prof Kausik Ray, UK, Prof Stephen Nicholls (Australia) and Prof Lale Tokgozoglu (Turkey) – look to the horizon, summarising the very latest research findings and clinical trials outcomes, and talking about the implications for how we will manage cardiovascular disease in the future.

Note: To give audiences from around the world the opportunity to take part, this webinar will take place live on two separate occasions, November 29 & December 06. In both webinars the speakers will present on the same topics, and they will be live in person to answer your questions on them. Registration for each webinar is separate. Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
