Accreditation – NY Endovascular Summit

Accreditation

Program Overview

The New York Endovascular Summit brings together a diverse group of healthcare professionals working together to improve patient care for those facing cardiovascular disease. There is a need to learn the latest treatment of PAD for the use of embolic protection using atherectomy for femoral popliteal disease. There also needs to be a stronger knowledge when choosing appropriate techniques for performing advanced endovascular interventions for patients and vascular disease and well as a better interpretation of diagnostic tools and appropriate screening techniques for PAD. The meeting offers healthcare professionals the opportunity to hear the latest developments in patient care and connect with their peers and course faculty at both formal and informal events throughout the conference.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the indications, risks and complications of interventional therapies in the treatment of peripheral artery disease, venous and aortic disease.
  2. List contemporary approaches in peripheral vascular management (including carotid, renal and mesenteric, SFA, below the knee, venous disease and aortic) based on recent clinical trials and evidenced-based data.
  3. Recall appropriate techniques for performing advanced endovascular interventions for patients with vascular disease.
  4. Describe appropriate pharmacologic management in the care of patients with PAD.
  5. Discuss various testing modalities and comprehensive spectrum of care in patients with foot ulcers and threatened limbs.
  6. Explain proper use and interpretation of diagnostic tools and apply appropriate screening techniques for peripheral artery disease.
  7. Recognize the roles and responsibilities of multidisciplinary members of a comprehensive PAD clinical team.

Target Audience
