Statement of Need
Cancer remains the second leading cause of death in the United States, exceeded only by heart disease, with an estimated 1.8 million new cases in 2020. Cancer treatment can have a diverse array of long-term and late effects, including cardiovascular events such as heart failure, valvular damage, coronary artery disease, and cardiac dysfunction. In this contemporary treatment era, cardiologists, oncologists, and the entire interprofessional team need to understand the different types of cancer therapies (e.g., cytotoxic chemotherapy, radiation therapy, transplantation, targeted and immune therapies) to help mitigate the associated cardiovascular complications.

The goal of this course is to improve awareness, identification, monitoring, and management of cardiovascular disease and conditions, and minimize cardiotoxicity from anticancer therapies to improve overall survival and quality of life of the oncology patient.

Target Audience
This educational activity is intended to address the educational needs of cardiologists, oncologists, internists, pharmacists, nurses, and all members of the interprofessional care team who provide healthcare to the growing population of cancer patients and survivors with cardiovascular concerns.
