Getting to the Heart of Aging: An Interprofessional Approach to Cardiovascular Health

Full Description: 

Program Overview:

This conference presents comprehensive overviews of developments in providing healthcare for older populations. Each year a different geriatric topic is explored in depth.

Conference Focus:

The focus of the conference this year is to learn about the practical management and coordination of treatment and services for older patients along a continuum of care. Models of care that incorporate age-related changes in the cardiovascular system will be presented. The conference will also present the epidemiology of cardiovascular disorders including heart failure (HF) in older adults and will summarize data on the pathophysiology of the aging heart.  The clinical characteristics, treatment patterns, pharmaco therapy, prevention strategies, and outcomes of older adult patients will be explored. An overarching conference theme will be the importance of interprofessional teamwork in promoting quality of life and prevention to older adults at risk for, and with, heart problems.
