Identifying Patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
1.50 hours of Category 1 credit
Access it here.
CAD/PAD are chronic progressive vascular diseases which are subject to an elevated risk of secondary thrombotic events, associated with various atherosclerotic diseases. The asymptomatic nature of PAD is worrisome, not only because of the sheer nature of patients who report as such, but it serves as a risk for progressive atherosclerotic disease. Enhanced recognition and diagnosis of PAD is critical for overall quality and success of care by the vascular healthcare team.
New & Emerging Treatment Approaches in the Management of Patients with CAD/PAD – Impact on Clinical Practice & Guidelines
1.75 hours of Category 1 credit
Access it here.
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) are chronic progressive cardiovascular diseases which are subject to an elevated risk of secondary thrombotic events, associated with various atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. The asymptomatic nature of PAD is worrisome, not only because of the sheer nature of patients who report as such, but it serves as a risk for progressive atherosclerotic disease. A lack of disease recognition and diagnosis is the first barrier to optimal prevention strategies. Throughout the continuum of CAD/PAD, multiple providers are involved in the patient care including but not limited to vascular surgeons, interventional endovascular specialists, vascular medicine specialists, clinical cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, hematologists, hospitalists, primary care providers, pharmacists, nurses and discharge planners.
