Wednesday 5 May 7.30pm - 8.30pm
Chaired by Prof Garry Jennings, Chief Medical Advisor of the Heart Foundation of Australia, our expert panel will explore the latest evidence to support CVD risk assessment and management in primary care, including the latest on coronary artery calcium scoring.
Topics to be discussed:
- How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted cardiovascular health?
- What novel strategies are emerging in clinical practice as complementary to the absolute CVD risk approach?
- What factors help re-classify CVD risk (e.g. coronary artery calcium imaging and female specific risk factors)
- What can general practices do to champion CVD prevention and opportunistically leverage increased patient engagement during the vaccine rollout?
