Women Doctor with patient in office

October 20, 2022, 8 am CT/ 9 am ET

This webinar will explore the features of monogenic autoinflammatory diseases as a paradigm for IL-1 mediated recurrent pericarditis. It will also highlight pericarditis as a feature of systemic autoimmune disease and offer pearls for recognizing and diagnosing these conditions. Finally, advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology of these conditions has led to many effective treatments. However, for a small minority of patients who are refractory to or intolerant of modern medical therapy, surgical pericardiectomy remains a treatment option. The third part of this webinar will present surgical indications for pericardiectomy, surgical approach, and risk/benefit of surgery.

Best Practices in the Care of Cryptogenic Stroke Patients: Review of the 2021 Clinical Guideline

A male healthcare worker reassures his elderly male patient, who is seated in an exam room. Both men are wearing masks.While a precise percentage of cryptogenic strokes is unknown, approximately 35% of strokes are thought to be cryptogenic. This suggests nearly 240,000 strokes annually for which no clear etiology can be distinguished. Experts concur the embolic insult in cryptogenic stroke may be due to subclinical atrial fibrillation (AF). It is estimated about 15% of ischemic strokes are caused by AF and that there is an elevated risk of secondary ischemic stroke due to AF.

This 3-part educational webinar series on cryptogenic stroke focuses on the 2021 Guideline for the Prevention of Stroke in Patients with Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack.

Moderator: Eunjoo An, PhD, RN

Shared decision-making has become a method to enhance patient involvement in health care decisions, patient-provider communication, and patient-centered care. When selecting the best hypertension management plan, your patients may have different goals and preferences for treatment. Adherence may be increased if the plan aligns with the patient’s preferences. In this webinar you will learn how to engage your patients and incorporate shared decision making into your practice. Barriers to implementing strategies will also be discussed.
