The Cardiovascular Nurse and Technologist Symposium at TCT 2009 will examine the latest advances in interventional, pharmacologic and clinical/administrative strategies for the management of the cardiovascular patient:

  • Focus on the heart attack patient receiving PCI
  • Revascularization decisions
  • Management decisions regarding patients with drug-eluting stents
  • Leadership
  • Tough calls in clinical decision-making
  • Taking charge of your own health


September 21-22, 2009

Nurses are on the front lines in and out of the cath lab, providing care for patients with cardiovascular disease, which kills more Americans every year than cancer, making it one of the country's most significant health risks and a critical health topic for millions of people. This symposium will bring nurses and technologists up to speed on the latest advances in patient care.

Featured topics will include:

  • Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialists (RCIS) Review Course
