This program will identify appropriate local resources, review the newest strategies and discuss the most up-to-date guidelines, devices and procedures that will enable the primary healthcare professional to provide better care for their patients living with coronary disease. The participant will more accurately interpret tests such as ECGs, more confidently implement post-operative care to their patients after cardiac surgery and will feel better informed to manage infections arising from implanted cardiac devices.

Attendees will depart from this program feeling a sense of wonderment to envision the futuristic cardiovascular care that seems to be on the imminent Kingston horizon.
