As event professionals, our job is to host people and while we can’t prepare for everything, it’s essential to develop an emergency plan that can be adapted to any situation. In Boston, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority’s (MCCA) Public Safety Team at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) and the Hynes Convention Center, have taken their experiences to develop a comprehensive crisis management training program, starting with crisis communications.

This two-day continuing medical education symposium will center on the nuts and bolts of everyday care for patients with cardiovascular diseases, and present new ideas for tailoring the most appropriate treatment plan for each individual. Focus will be placed on gauging and monitoring therapy, including recognizing symptoms, evaluating risk factors, guiding treatment through imaging, general and functional testing, and appropriate therapy. Unlike most programs, this will be delivered as a case-based approach. In other words, how would I manage a diabetic patient with these lipid levels? Case examples make the lectures more relevant to everyday practitioners. Working with the most current data from recent evidence-based medicine studies, as well as new guidelines, the invited faculty will provide updates and detailed discussions on statins, PCSK9 inhibitors, heart failure, PFO closure, peripheral vascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, wound care, TAVR, atrial fibrillation and more. Ultimately, the goal is to provide an overview of the optimal methods and management of the informed physician’s practice, and to discuss and debate the exciting options on the horizon. We also will include world experts in cardiovascular device development and delivery of health care to help us navigate this ever-changing new health care environment.
Target Audience: This symposium is designed for clinical cardiologists, primary care physicians, interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, basic scientists, vascular medicine specialists, nurses, perfusionists, cath lab technicians, and other health care professionals with a special interest in the field of cardiovascular medicine.
