Renal Denervation: A Workshop for the Hypertension Care Team
Make plans to attend Renal Denervation for Hypertension: A Care Pathway Workshop for the Heart Care Team on Friday, April 5, 2024. This educational program will provide the opportunity for an update on the latest science on contemporary approaches to hypertension management and to understand how renal denervation may impact hypertension management and overall patient care.
Statement of Need
Hypertension is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, premature death, and disability-adjusted life years in the world, but it remains uncontrolled for a majority of people. Innovative and emerging treatment options have an important role in controlling hypertension. One advance in treatment is adjunctive renal denervation (RDN). As new data continues to emerge, clinicians will need education on the safety and efficacy of renal denervation from recent trials demonstrating its benefit as an emerging treatment.
The overall goal is to improve hypertension management and overall patient care by providing an update on the latest science on contemporary approaches to hypertension management and understanding how renal denervation may impact hypertension management and overall patient care.
