The Scripps Cardiomyopathy and Cardio-Oncology Symposium is designed to provide a 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. Cardiac amyloidosis, a burgeoning disease with exciting new treatments will also be discussed.
After attending this live internet activity, participants should be able to:
- Assess the risks of oncologic treatment-related cardiac dysfunction for patients who have undergone therapy for cancer.
- Implement strategies for early detection, correction of cardiac risk factors, and close and long-term cardiac monitoring in order to reduce the effects of cardiotoxicity for patients who are at risk of cancer treatment-related cardiac dysfunction.
- Discuss the latest diagnosis and treatment options available for cardiac amyloidosis.
- 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 cardiomyopathy.
Scripps Health is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

ABIM MOC Points
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 3 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
This course is supported, in part, by educational grants from industry, in accordance with ACCME Accreditation Standards for Commercial Support. Appropriate acknowledgement will be given to all supporters at the time of the educational activity.
Cultural and Linguistic Competency
This activity is in compliance with California Assembly Bill 1195, which requires that all CME activities comprising a patient care element include curriculum addressing the topic of cultural and linguistic competency. The intent of this bill is to ensure that health care professionals are able to meet the cultural and linguistic concerns of a diverse patient population through effective and appropriate professional development. The planners, speakers and authors of this CME activity have been encouraged to address issues relevant in their topic area. A variety of resources are available that address cultural and linguistic competency, some of which can be found in the Cultural & Linguistic Competency Resource Guide.
