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.

Centered in the ACC.19 experience, the Prevention Pathway will provide cardiovascular professionals with guidance on how they should adjust their patients' care based on the new information, research results and the availability of newer pharmaceuticals and technology. All members of the cardiovascular team and fellows in training (FITs) will find these sessions valuable.

Sessions will feature a blend of case discussions, debates and knowledge checks. Attendees will find a wide-ranging selection of sessions about guidelines, cholesterol, diet and lifestyle, hypertension, diabetes management and cardiovascular disease, aspirin therapy and smoking. Other sessions focus on the newer therapeutics in lipid lowering and inflammation or review informatics, novel apps and microbiome.

All members of the cardiovascular care team should mark their calendars to attend the Prevention Learning Pathway sessions to ensure that they are on the cutting edge of knowledge that will help to elevate patient care.
