Despite an increased awareness of heart disease in women over the past decade, cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to be the number one cause of morbidity and mortality in women, and research in the realm of gender differences in cardiovascular disease, is still substantially lacking. It is well documented that heart disease in women is both under-recognized as well as undertreated due to several factors, and that overall mortality of women exceeds that of men treated for similar conditions.
The Scripps Arrhythmias and Cardiomyopathy in Women Symposium is designed to increase competence regarding the recognition and management of cardiovascular disease in women. The symposium will explore new and emerging risk factors for women’s heart disease while highlighting areas of discrepancy in care management related to gender. The goal of this activity is to improve outcomes for women with cardiovascular disease and arrhythmias as well as provide educational interventions for both primary and secondary prevention.
After attending this live activity, participants should be able to:
- Discuss cardiovascular disease, conditions and risk factors which are more common and/or unique to women.
- Identify the varied and atypical presentation of heart disease and arrhythmia in women.
- Reflect on the underutilization of standard medical and device therapies in women compared to men.
- Explore gender differences in the management of heart failure, valvular disease, and arrhythmia with a focus on the paucity of data for women.
