Free CME-certified Webcast: Opening the Door to Better Myocardial Infarction Outcomes: Emergency Departments Hold the Key
Date:10/9/2007

SEATTLE, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Emergency departments (ED) hold a critical key in improving acute coronary syndromes (ACS) outcomes. Does your community-based ED have all the tools that you need to improve ACS care? This CME-certified symposium, "Opening the Door to Better Myocardial Infarction Outcomes: Emergency Departments Hold the Key," will be led by top ED - cardiology experts, Deborah Diercks, MD; James Hoekstra, MD; and Charles Pollack, Jr., MD. They will describe ways in which community-based EDs can apply new treatment guidelines and clinical trial evidence to their chest pain patients treated for ACS. As chest pain represents the second-largest patient population that EDs treat, this interactive, case-based session will provide a lively description of how ED health care providers can continue to advance treatment and outcomes for this prevalent population, through improved triage and diagnosis, shortened door to balloon/needle times, and optimal upstream adjuvant therapy.

The free CME-certified Webcast will be presented on October 10, from 5:30 AM to 8:00 AM. Broadcast live during the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly, this innovative, case-based symposium will provide emergency physicians and other clinicians with detailed information on treating patients with acute myocardial infarction. This activity is sponsored by INNOVIA Education Institute and supported by and educational grant from sanofi-aventis, U.S.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

As a result of participating in this symposium, learners will be able to:

-- Apply new clinical trial data and treatment guidelines to acute ACS

management in the community-based ED

-- Adapt evidence-based approaches to acute ACS care to diverse patient

populations, including older individuals as well as patients with

renal dysfunction and other co-morbid conditions

-- Employ systematic approaches EDs can take to improve ACS outcomes

-- Integrate ACS treatment data into algorithms for hospital EDs with

various PCI capabilities and transfer policies

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This symposium will provide an opportunity to review recent developments in the treatment of ACS in the ED setting through the lens of patient cases that the participants submit. Through a highly-interactive format, participants will work to apply new treatment guidelines and research evidence to diverse ACS patient populations and ED-practice settings.
