Therapies that Work: Translating their Optimal Use into Clinical Practice

Secondary Prevention Cocktail: The Key Ingredients
Thanks to great teamwork, we are doing a better job on getting those D2B (door to balloon) times below 90 minutes! But long term outcomes for the post ACS patient depends on their persistence with the secondary prevention cocktail.

Statins and Beyond: New Tools for the Challenging Patient
There is still controversy around the 2013 prevention guidelines, and with new pharmacologic lipid-lowering agents on the horizon, there is a lot for RNs and APNs to know. We hope that our session on lipid management will provide you the latest information and help to demystify the guidelines and the treatment of the complicated patient.

VTE: Matching Patient Need to Optimal Therapy
Risk for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism increases in those undergoing orthopedic surgery, and in those immobilized for a variety of reasons including air travel! There are a number of options available to manage VTE risk, including non-pharmacologic strategies, and a host of new anticoagulant medications. Join us for this engaging, case-based presentation to learn the latest information.
