Free Online Course: Certified Education on Severe AS Now Available

The ACC launched the Severe Aortic Stenosis: Essentials for Assessment and Diagnosis online course to arm clinicians with the latest evidence-based strategies for assessment and diagnosis of patients with aortic stenosis (AS). Over the last two decades, the paradigm of care for patients with AS has drastically changed, increasing the frequency of TAVR among patients with high surgical risk, and subsequently for patients at intermediate and low risk. Since TAVR was first introduced, there have been significant decreases in 30-day mortality, stroke, and TAVR-related complications. Improve your diagnostic strategies and earn Continuing Medical Education credits/Maintenance of Certification points, Continuing Nursing Education credits and/or American Academy of Physician Assistants credits with four certified patient cases, including Low Gradient Aortic Stenosis in a Patient with Normal Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction. Also, check out the videos with expert panel discussions on multidisciplinary evaluation and shared decision-making for AS and assessment and diagnosis of AS. Learn more.
