Advancing the Cardiovascular Care of the Oncology Patient (In Person)

Advancing the Cardiovascular Care of the Oncology Patient

Join us in person in Washington, DC for Advancing the Cardiovascular Care of the Oncology Patient taking place Feb. 9 – 11. This is an interdisciplinary and interspecialty course to provide clinicians and researchers with the tools needed to improve the cardiovascular (CV) health of cancer patients in your everyday practice.

Cancer remains the second leading cause of death in the United States, exceeded only by heart disease, with an estimated 1.9 million new cases in 2022. Cancer treatment can have a diverse array of long-term and late effects, including CV events such as heart failure, valvular disease, coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, peripheral arterial disease, and thromboembolic events. In this contemporary treatment era, cardiologists, oncologists, and the entire interprofessional team need to understand the different types of cancers and cancer therapies (e.g., cytotoxic chemotherapy, radiation therapy, transplantation, targeted and immune therapies) and their associated cardiovascular risks, to help mitigate the associated cardiovascular complications.

Register today to join leading experts and course chairs Ana Barac, MD, PhD, FACC and Bonnie Ky, MD, MSCE, FACC in person at the Heart House in Washington, DC Feb. 9 – 11 as they share emerging strategies and best practices to manage the health of cancer patients. This educational experience is designed for you to stay on the leading edge of this rapidly evolving field!

Can't join us in person? Join us virtually to get all the education you need to stay at the leading edge of this rapidly evolving field!

The goal of this course is to equip the global cardio-oncology community with actionable knowledge and science to advance patient-centered, evidence-based, collaborative cardiovascular and cancer care for our patients living with and beyond cancer.

Target Audience
This educational activity is intended to address the educational needs for cardiologists, oncologists, internists, pharmacists, nurses, trainees, and all members of the interprofessional care team who advance the clinical care of, and conduct clinical research that is relevant to, the growing population of cancer patients and survivors at risk for, or suffer from, cardiovascular disease.

Innovative, evidence-based, actionable, current, multi-disciplinary, patient-centered

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the oncologic indications, mechanisms of action, and cardiotoxicity risk of specific therapies that comprise the pillars of cancer treatment (chemotherapy, immune therapy, targeted therapy, and radiation). 
  2. Define the evidence supporting clinical, imaging and biomarker-guideline recommendations regarding risk stratification and monitoring strategies in cancer patients treated with potentially cardiotoxic therapies.
  3. Apply evidence-based pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic strategies to mitigate and actively manage the short- and long-term cardiotoxicity risk in patients living with and beyond cancer.
  4. Recognize the mechanistic and epidemiologic overlap between cancer and cardiovascular disease, independent of the cardiotoxicity of cancer therapies. 
  5. Describe the impact of health disparities, genomic ancestry, and social determinants of health in cardiovascular disease in patients living with and beyond cancer. 
  6. Describe the pathophysiologic basis of amyloidosis, as well as current and emerging diagnostic and treatment strategies.
  7. Design a multi-disciplinary, interprofessional cardio-oncology care team and successful framework to advance the overall cardiovascular care of cancer patients and survivors.
