CVD Prevention 2021

The most important way to avoid cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, heart failure, arrhythmias) is prevention. Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented when other risk factors such as, being overweight, smoking, alcohol abuse, and not participating in physical activity are addressed. Early detection and medicine management are key for treating patients who present cardiovascular risks, such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia or a pre-existing disease.

The number of patients with obesity and diabetes continues to rise. Therefore, more emphasis needs to be on prevention, rather than interventional. This educational event will provide updates on the most current recommendations for cardiovascular disease prevention, ranging from lifestyle interventions, to testing, and clinical decision-making for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, residents, and fellows. For example, diet, exercise and obesity-related guidelines (primary prevention), or which patients with high cardiovascular risk require a CAC scan, and/or who to put on a statin (secondary prevention).
