The Division of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) launched a new webinar series for physicians titled, What Does the Non-Cardiologist Need to Know About Cardiology.
Cardiac diseases are the most common cause of death among adults, and it is common for physicians who are not cardiologists to encounter cardiac patients in outpatient settings. The new series is designed to offer guidance to these non-cardiologist physicians to help them provide the very best care possible to cardiac patients they treat for other health issues, which may or may not be related to cardiac disease.
Each instalment of the new series is delivered by expert interventional cardiologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at WCM-Q, Dr Islam Elgendy.
Management of Stable Coronary Artery Disease
In the first instalment Dr Elgendy spoke on the topic, ‘Management of Stable Coronary Artery Disease.’ In his presentation, Dr Elgendy outlined the pathophysiology of stable coronary artery disease, explained how to identify the appropriate investigative methods for evaluating patients with the condition, and discussed the common therapies used in the management of patients with stable coronary artery disease.
Treatment plans are usually personalised to the specific needs of each patient but are based on risk factor management, antianginal drugs and lifestyle modifications, such as tobacco cessation, healthy diet and weight loss, and exercise. The next instalment of the series is titled ‘Chronic Heart Failure Management.’
The webinars are accredited locally by the Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners-Accreditation Department and by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
