Cardiologists around the world look to the ACC for advancing cardiovascular science and knowledge, but reaching physicians where they live and work is essential to elevating patient care and improving heart health. Join the great minds of the cardiovascular profession for a spectacular educational experience delivered with the unique perspective of clinical practice within a region. The ACC Latin America Conference 2016 brings together cardiovascular professionals for two-and-a-half-days of interactive education that is both locally relevant and highly practical.
By attending, you will experience:
Local - Educational topics tailored to the needs of the Latin America region such as acute coronary syndrome, heart failure, arrhythmias, hypertension, valvular disease and prevention
Relevant - Opportunities to assess your knowledge across cardiology (Great for fellows-in-training!)
Practical - Hands-on practice and skill building in auscultation, ECG and echo interpretation and clinical decision making using virtual simulated patients
Unique - Mentoring in elements of cardiovascular research and publication
Solutions for everyday problems targeting practical approaches to guideline-driven care
PLUS the benefit of becoming an ACC International Associate member or, if already an ACC member, access to one of ACC’s premier educational products.
This is ACC education delivered like you have never seen before, planned by regional experts and facilitated by prominent international faculty, including keynote presentations by Valentin Fuster, MD, PHD, MACC and Robert Bonow, MD, MACC.
STATEMENT OF NEED
Advances in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD) have yielded remarkably positive results, with a steady decline in CVD mortality across the globe. However, despite this remarkable progress, CVD remains the leading cause of death throughout the world and its prevalence remains high, making it a global public health priority and an intensive focus of research. Such research has led to new evidence that continues to accrue about the underlying pathophysiology as well as strategies to enhance CVD prevention, evaluation and treatment. As care of the patient with CVD becomes more complex, it is imperative that cardiovascular professionals have an opportunity for a comprehensive review of evidence-based practices and exposure to state-of-the-art updates, innovative techniques and translational research on the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease.
