A recording of the Heart Foundation’s Heart Week 2021 webinar is now available.
In this one-hour webinar, an expert panel chaired by Prof Garry Jennings, Chief Medical Advisor of the Heart Foundation of Australia, explores the latest evidence to support cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk assessment and management in primary care, including an update on coronary artery calcium scoring.
Topics covered in this recording include:
- How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted cardiovascular health?
- What novel strategies are emerging in clinical practice that complement the absolute CVD risk approach?
- What factors help re-classify an individual’s CVD risk (e.g. coronary artery calcium imaging and female specific risk factors)?
- What can general practices do to champion CVD prevention and opportunistically leverage increased patient engagement during the vaccine rollout?
