Cardiovascular disease affects approximately 27.6 million Americans and is the leading cause of death for almost all ethnic groups in our country. One in four deaths can be attributed to cardiovascular disease, with 735,000 heart attacks occurring annually. Despite national and statewide efforts, there is little to no progress being made in decreasing the prevalence of cardiovascular disease.
However, due to innovations in primary care prevention and resuscitation science, patients are living longer with cardiovascular disease and surviving heart attacks and cardiac arrest. This webinar discusses current data trends in cardiovascular health and examines contributing factors to cardiovascular disease for adults, adolescents, and children. In addition, the webinar will examine new scientific findings and guidelines for management of cardiovascular disease from a community and acute care perspective.
Who can benefit from the webinar and what organization/group can be invited to attend?
Healthcare providers from the acute care community and public health sectors, including nurses, nurse practitioners, and pre-hospital emergency service providers.
- Explore current data on the cardiovascular health of America
- Identify areas for public health/primary healthcare provider involvement in mitigating risk of cardiovascular disease
