Course Overview
The Scripps Cardiomyopathy and Cardio-Oncology Symposium is designed to provide a comprehensive, case-based curriculum that addresses important clinical topics relevant to cardiomyopathy and cardiovascular health of cancer survivors. Cardio-oncology is a growing field that has great importance as newly developed cancer treatments improve cancer survival rates but can be associated with cardiovascular toxicities. Cardiac amyloidosis, a burgeoning disease with exciting new treatments will also be discussed.

Educational Objectives

  • Assess the risks of oncologic treatment-related cardiac dysfunction for patients who have undergone therapy for cancer.
  • Implement strategies for early detection, correction of cardiac risk factors, and close and long-term cardiac monitoring in order to reduce the effects of cardiotoxicity for patients who are at risk of cancer treatment-related cardiac dysfunction.
  • Discuss the latest diagnosis and treatment options available for cardiac amyloidosis.
  • Evaluate multi-modality imaging such as cardiac magnetic resonance (MR), echocardiography, and nuclear imaging including positron emission tomography (PET) scanning in the diagnosis and follow-up of cardiomyopathy.

Target Audience

  • Cardiologists
  • Oncologists
  • Internists
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Physician Assistants
