RCPE Symposium: Cardiology 2018

New developments in the management of cardiovascular disease are rapidly evolving, and new drugs provide new treatment options. The challenge remains to optimise their use, as well as identify patients most likely to benefit from these treatments.

The programme will examine patient selection and treatment decisions in conditions that have been the particular focus of recent clinical trials and technological advances. Topics include:

  • New developments in heart failure management
  • How best to manage lipids, hypertension and thrombosis.
  • Risk stratification and targeting management in acute coronary syndrome and venous thromboembolism
  • Cardiology in the emergency room
  • New techniques and devices in monitoring patients

In addition to receiving a contemporary review of these ever changing fields conference delegates will gain an appreciation of the challenge of translating new technologies and clinical trials into everyday clinical practice.
