About the episode

Beta-blockers are routinely prescribed often as first-line therapy for various cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease and heart failure. Much of their prescribing relates to the benefits of the newer generation of beta-blockers and greater cardio-selectivity. One of the challenges all clinicians face is to manage the choice of numerous beta-blockers and in particular translating the evidence base to real-world practice.

This webinar will provide an overview of the evidence of beta-blockers, and present some key differences between the agents. The webinar will also discuss, through the use of cases, the management of patients who are often excluded from clinical trials, in particular the elderly.

This is an independent activity run by the International Society of Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy (ISCP) and co-produced in collaboration with Radcliffe Cardiology.
