Overview

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of death in women in the United States and the developed world. New research has identified novel risk factors specific to women such as pregnancy related heart conditions, or conditions more prominent in women such as rheumatologic disorders or mental health. While public health initiatives have increased awareness in these areas, there is still confusion among health care providers about risk assessment and best practice with regards to management of women with heart disease. A review of the most current evidence-based guidelines for the prevention of heart disease in women with a focus on the management of diseases as catered to the unique pathophysiology of women, will provide medical practitioners with a clear understanding of the best practice to ensure women are not just treated as “little men”.


     

 

Learning Objectives

  • Assess how to risk stratify women, using existing calculators and the additional use of novel risk factors such as pregnancy-related conditions
  • Identify patients to refer for cardiology specialists or maternal fetal medicine/high risk obstetrics
  • Analyze the practice guidelines for treatment of women with heart disease
  • Recognize MINOCA/INOCA and understand the significance to women
  • Develop an approach to appropriate risk stratification and selection of diagnostic testing for symptomatic women with suspected ischemic heart disease
  • Recognize the relationship between breast cancer and heart disease
  • Identify sex-differences in outcomes of valvular disease and coronary artery revascularization
  • Recognize heart failure subtypes that predominately affect women–recognize advanced heart failure management specific to women
  • Determine gender disparities in the use of mechanical support devices for the management of heart conditions specific to women

Target Audience 
MDs, PAs, NPs, RNs in the areas of Cardiology, Endocrinology, Ob/GYN, Internal and Family Medicine, fellows, residents, and medical students.
