IASIS Healthcare Employees: Click to register for the Nursing Symposium

This two-day continuing medical education symposium will center on the nuts and bolts of everyday care for patients with cardiovascular diseases, and present new ideas for tailoring the most appropriate treatment plan for each individual.  Focus will be placed on gauging and monitoring therapy, including recognizing symptoms, evaluating risk factors, guiding treatment through imaging, general and functional testing, and appropriate therapy.  Unlike most programs, this will be delivered as a case-based approach.  In other words, how would I manage a diabetic patient with these lipid levels?  Case examples make the lectures more relevant to everyday practitioners.

This symposium is designed for clinical cardiologists, primary care physicians, interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, basic scientists, vascular medicine specialists, nurses, perfusionists, cath lab technicians, and other health care professionals with a special interest in the field of cardiovascular medicine.
