matters of the heart: Cardiovascular Nursing Conference

This year's cardiovascular nursing conference theme is "Structural Heart Advances for the Future." Structural heart disease (SHD) is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing fields in cardiovascular medicine and nursing. Advancements in cardiovascular technology have allowed previously improbable procedures to become the norm. This one-and-a-half day conference covers the latest guidelines, therapeutic approaches, recent trends, pathophysiology, patient selection and treatment options for SHD. Attendees will learn via didactic sessions, panel discussions, poster presentations and hands-on demonstration of the latest devices used to treat SHD. For those who complete the course, CNE credit is available.
