The content of this online activity was presented originally at a live event. It is divided into two videos. Learners must view both videos in their entirety and complete a post-activity assessment and evaluation before they are eligible for continuing credit.
The North American Thrombosis Forum's (NATF’s) “2020 NATF Online Summit on Women’s Cardiovascular Health” focuses on the unique risks and challenges that women face regarding their cardiovascular health, with a particular focus on thrombotic illnesses such as myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, and venous thromboembolism (VTE). It also explores how biological changes across a woman’s lifespan can increase cardiovascular event risk and will further address best practices for managing this risk.
Hospitalists and physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and surgeons who specialize in cardiovascular medicine, endocrinology, family practice, internal medicine, gynecology, or obstetrics.
Participation in this activity is made possible, free of charge, with the support of Cordis.
