Evidence is mounting on the undertreatment of women with cardiovascular disease. Women face delays in recognition of disease and compared to men are less likely to receive guideline-directed medical therapy or the right intensification of therapy. 

Explore how CVD presents differently in women and how to tailor treatment strategies based on physiological differences to optimize patient outcomes. This course will dig into sex-based gaps and optimization of treatment in atrial fibrillation, coronary heart disease, and heart failure.

Infographic

This "Heart of Women's Health" infographic raises awareness of the disparities in the delivery of care and cardiovascular outcomes for women. Learners are challenged to address these disparities through a renewed commitment to recognize the issue and prescribe GDMT and other evidence-based treatment.
 
   
Self-Paced Learning

The Heart of Women's Health: Disproportionate Gaps in Care eLearning curriculum will walk learners through the disproportionate undertreatment of women with CVD and elucidate important physiological differences that affect the efficacy of particular therapies.
