Cardiovascular Nursing Clinical Symposium Description

The Cardiovascular Nursing (CVN) Clinical Symposium is a forum designed to provide cutting-edge clinical information for Advanced Practice Nurses and staff nurses who care for patients with cardiovascular disease and stroke. The symposium will share proven best clinical practices in the care of this patient population.

Content will include discussions on precision medicine and pharmacogenetics as it applies to nursing, the cardiotoxic effects of recreational drugs, and the underutilization of cardiac rehabilitation. There also will be two panel discussions: one on updates in interventional cardiology and one on updates in structural heart disease as well as many more topics. The purpose of the program is to provide the most current evidence-based practices to promote optimal patient outcomes.
