Cardiovascular disease are the main cause of morbidities and mortality worldwide, and the related risk factors, such as diabetes, dyslipidemia, obesity and sedentary, are particularly increasing in developing countries changing towards a western life-style. This is also true in the Middle East nations, representing an emergency for their healthcare professionals and healthcare systems.
Hypertension and the related complications, such as heart failure, cerebrovascular events and atrial fibrillation, are responsible for disabilities and numerous deceases. The implementation in clinical practice of a modern management approach is crucial, with prevention and intervention strategies required to improve patient care while balancing the related socio-economic burden.
Serono Symposia International Foundation is organizing the 2nd European-Middle East forum on “Managing Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Clinical Practice” to provide physicians dealing with the patients having cardiovascular risk factors or diseases with a common stand where to compare and share experiences in this field, led by key experts from Europe and the Middle East regions.
The aims of this event are to deliver updated knowledge on the main aspects of prevention and management of major cardiovascular risk factors and diseases, and to give insights on particular cardiovascular complications and case presentations according to current guidelines and evidence-based medicine, thus improving the clinical practice of participants and ultimately patient care.
Participants, after attending this live educational event, by receiving updated knowledge on cardiovascular risk factors and diseases, will be able to:
1. Evaluate the impact of the different cardiovascular risk factors on patients and implement appropriate counteracting interventions
2. Manage hypertension and the related cardiovascular complications, such as heart failure, cerebrovascular events and atrial fibrillation
3. Use the right diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in clinical practice to face difficult cases, including those with poor treatment adherence
Cardiologists, internists, general practitioners and all other physicians involved in the prevention and management of patients with cardiovascular risk factors or having cardiovascular diseases.
