The Evolving Practice of Cardiovascular Precision Medicine Virtual

The Evolving Practice of Cardiovascular Precision Medicine

Join the expert faculty virtually for The Evolving Practice of Cardiovascular Precision Medicine. Equip yourself with foundational and operational knowledge of precision medicine and learn how to apply techniques to your clinical and research settings!

The course will focus on:

  • Application of Genomic Medicine for Cardiovascular Patients
  • Augmented Clinical Decision Support for Cardiovascular Disease Management
  • Intersection of Precision and Personalized Medicine

Plus — Don't Miss the Opening Session!

Geoffrey Ginsburg, MD, PhD, FACC and Joshua C. Denny, MD, MS will share updates from NIH's All of Us Research Program, particularly as it relates to return of results to practitioners and the future of precision medicine with a focus on diversity and inclusion. With the rise of biobanks and eventual return of genetic results through All of Us and other initiatives, it's imperative that cardiovascular practitioners know how to implement and process results!

Registration includes access to live educational sessions, real-time discussions with faculty experts, and On Demand sessions to watch until August 13, 2022.

Statement of Need

The concept of personalizing therapies to maximize benefits and minimize risk for patients is within reach. While healthcare providers have overwhelmingly expressed interest in innovation and the transformation of medicine, most have had little to no exposure to the data, platforms, methods, and clinical applications that form the foundation of precision medicine. Clinicians need to become familiar with high throughput technologies, such as genomics, metabolomics, proteomics, and the role of big data analytics (machine learning, artificial intelligence) and digital health tools in the evolution of cardiac practice.

Goal
The overall goal of this course is to equip cardiovascular providers with the core knowledge and skills to understand and apply evidenced-based genomic medicine and digital technologies to patients at risk for and with established cardiovascular disease and to recognize the current limitations of each approach. Learners will acquire the knowledge to implement precision medicine strategies in clinical practice, research, and quality improvement initiatives and use applications of precision medicine in common clinical scenarios.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Understand how to apply key genomic medicine use cases in your practice to improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  • Develop a framework for integrating 'imaging' and 'mobile health' sensors like ECG to develop 'digital' patient phenotypes for risk stratifications and interventions.
  • Understand the opportunity in using "omics" data for routine assessment of cardiovascular diseases with a broad overview of the ethical, social, and regulatory challenges.
  • Evaluate the risks and benefits of open source and commercially available platforms for precision medicine implementation in cardiology.
  • Evaluate applications of precision medicine to personalize care of cardiovascular patients.
  • Recognize how the collection of diverse health datasets is changing the landscape of precision medicine.

Target Audience
This course is intended for cardiovascular care physicians, clinical pharmacists, advanced practice providers, nurses, and trainees interested in implementing precision medicine applications in their practice and translational cardiovascular researchers without prior expertise in omics and big data analytics who are interested in expanding their skill set in those areas.
