The Scripps Cardiomyopathy and Cardio-Oncology Symposium is designed to provide a state-of-the-art, comprehensive curriculum that addresses important clinical topics relevant to cardiomyopathy and the cardiovascular health of cancer patients and survivors. Cardio-oncology is an important and emerging field of medicine resulting from new or unexpected cardiovascular toxicities many cancer survivors are now experiencing because of their cancer treatments. In addition, cardiac amyloidosis is a burgeoning disease with exciting new treatments. Nationally recognized faculty in the fields of cardiology and oncology will discuss challenging topics related to common cardiomyopathies as well as current best practices for diagnosing, treating and managing afflicted patients. The goal of the conference is for participants to return to their practice equipped with the latest evidence base and practical information to improve patient care.
After attending this live activity, participants should be able to:
- Incorporate best practices for managing cardiac toxicities in cancer patients.
- Integrate the latest diagnosis and treatment options available for ATTR amyloid, AL amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, and myocarditis.
- Evaluate multi-modality imaging such as cardiac magnetic resonance (MR), echocardiography, and nuclear imaging including positron emission tomography (PET) scanning in the diagnosis and follow-up of cardio-oncology patients.
- Apply recommendations from the ACC/AHA/Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) guidelines when diagnosing and managing patients with cardiomyopathy.
- Discuss the role of pharmacogenomics in cardiomyopathies.
- Develop strategies to minimize radiation-induced heart disease.
- Assess and manage cardiac risk for patients with hematologic malignancies.
