Electrophysiology in the West 2018: The Latest Advances in Arrhythmia Care

Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, Stanford, CA

A Continuing Medical Education Conference presented by the Department of
Medicine (Cardiovascular Division) at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Sponsored by the Stanford University School of Medicine 

Statement of Need

Health care professionals who attend the Electrophysiology in the West conference will increase their fund of knowledge for the management of care for patients with cardiac arrhythmia. Content, delivered by expert faculty from Stanford and around the country, will include in‐depth exploration of new advances in the mechanisms of cardiac fibrillation and cutting edge therapy for patients diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia. Divided into four parallel tracks, the symposium is designed to meet individual learner needs to improve their base of knowledge and to promote effective management of cardiac arrhythmia by all members of the healthcare team. Lectures, videos, case presentations, panel discussions and Q&A will be utilized to optimize learning.

Target Audience

This is an international program designed for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and allied health professionals specializing in cardiology, family practice, internal medicine, or primary care.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Outline current evidence regarding the basic mechanisms of arrhythmia and emerging therapies for cardiac fibrillation.
  • Utilize key clinical criteria to identify, screen and refer appropriate patients who may benefit from catheter ablation.
  • Develop strategies to manage patients prior to catheter ablation based on current guidelines.
  • Manage patients with atrial fibrillation according to current clinical evidence and guideline recommendations.
  • Integrate effective strategies for preventing atrial fibrillation and stroke in high risk patients.
