ACC.19 will feature 11 learning pathways. Each pathway focuses on a different clinical specialty of cardiovascular disease. Choose to focus on one clinical area or attend sessions from an array of pathways.
Learn more about the content in each learning pathway.
Acute and Stable Ischemic Heart Disease (ASIHD)
This pathway has something for everyone and includes hot topics like high-sensitivity troponin, cardiogenic shock, genetics and MINOCA, as well as SCAD, state-of-the art diagnosis, STEMI patient management, clinical conundrums, cardiovascular outcomes, and much more.
Arrhythmias and Clinical Electrophysiology
Practitioners will find a highly interactive and interdisciplinary program that focuses on new and important clinical topics and provides them with the knowledge they need to enhance patient care.
Congenital Heart Disease
Nowhere but at ACC.19, will cardiovascular professionals find a Congenital Heart Disease Learning Pathway that features expert updates on state-of-the art care for congenital/pediatric heart disease patients and offers multiple opportunities to discuss challenging clinical and practice issues related to congenital/pediatric heart disease.
Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathies
Contemporary management of heart failure requires a multidisciplinary team approach to achieve the best outcomes for this complex patient population, and for ACC.19, the Heart Failure (HF) and Cardiomyopathies Pathway program once again exemplifies a team approach in substance and action. Attendees will find a program that provides state of the art, evidence-based education presented by a diverse array of speakers.
Touch all areas of interventional cardiology with a broad range of topics from cutting edge technology and techniques, to everyday dilemmas, and challenges with complex or simple coronary, structural and endovascular disease. This year's program will engage the entire heart team who care for patients undergoing percutaneous cardiovascular procedures.
The Non-Invasive Learning Pathway offers array of diverse, cutting-edge topics with a mix of case-based learning guideline applications and practical demonstrations to enhance your knowledge in how to effectively care for patients. The program exemplifies how diverse technologies and approaches driven by the common purpose of improving patient care come together to provide improved patient outcomes.
Preventive cardiology is experiencing a significant amount of practice-changing science, prompting new guidelines and consensus decisions for guiding providers and their patients in preventing cardiovascular disease. ACC.19 and its Prevention Learning Pathway embraces the whole of cardiovascular medicine and encourages the melding of information across specialist pathways, all to the benefit of the patients.
Pulmonary Hypertension and VTE
The short but powerful program seeks to provide a multi-perspective approach to the management of pulmonary arterial hypertension. Program presenters will review current management while giving attendees a glimpse into the future of pulmonary vascular disease.
This pathway fulfills a different purpose from the topic specific clinical learning pathways. It creates connections between educational specialties, links diverse groups through common interests and highlights cutting-edge research. Sessions in this year's Special Topics Pathway acknowledge the far-reaching changes taking place in medicine today and provide insight on how to most effectively enhance patient care.
Valvular Heart Disease Learning Pathway
This pathway addresses all types of valvular heart disease — and includes not only the more typical valve lesion topics such as aortic stenosis or mitral regurgitation but also topics, such as tricuspid regurgitation or valve therapy pitfalls, which are generating new information that could tailor future management decisions.
Vascular Medicine Learning Pathway
Vascular medicine embodies a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to patient care and the Vascular Medicine Learning Pathway portrays this perspective. The program will feature several exciting sessions focused on cutting edge topics that intersect with other specialties including cardio-oncology, complex aortic disease and multi-agent antithrombotic therapy.
