Statement of Need

Today's CV health care leaders must be equipped to transform CV care by managing rapid change, navigating health care economics, and optimizing the patient-clinician experience. CV health care clinicians, administrators, and executives need to continually enhance their knowledge, skills, and attitudes to address the demands of the ever-changing health care environment to ensure success and improve outcomes.

The goal of this dynamic course is to provide all members of the cardiovascular (CV) team with the latest information and necessary skills to advance CV care by coupling up-to-date content with real-world strategies and tools that will advance the concepts of the quadruple aim—improved patient experience, care team well-being, smarter spending, and better health outcomes.

Target Audience
This multi-disciplinary course is intended for the entire CV team, including physicians, trainees, advanced practice professionals, nurses, pharmacists, dieticians, administrators, and executives, inclusive of all practice settings (private, integrated hospital, or academic).
