Course Overview

The Scripps Cardiomyopathy and Cardio-Oncology Symposium is designed to provide a state-of-the-art, comprehensive, case-based curriculum that addresses important clinical topics relevant to cardiomyopathy and cardiovascular health of cancer survivors. Cardio-oncology is a growing field that has great importance as newly developed cancer treatments improve cancer survival rates but can be associated with cardiovascular toxicities. Similarly, cardiac amyloidosis is a burgeoning disease with exciting new treatments. The program is intended for those involved in the care of patients with cardiomyopathies, diastolic heart failure, chemotherapy or radiation induced heart disease, and cardiomyopathy related arrhythmic diseases. Nationally recognized faculty will use case-based discussion to cover challenging heart failure topics related to common cardiomyopathies. 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.

Educational Objectives

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 cardiac amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
  • 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.
  • Discuss the role of genetic testing in cardiomyopathies and cite available clinical evidence for the management of cardiovascular disease during and/or after pregnancy.
  • Apply recommendations from the ACC/AHA/Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) guidelines when diagnosing and managing patients with cardiomyopathy.
