Available for 6.00 hours of CPE credit
Activity Number: 0217-0000-17-164-L01-P
Activity Type: An Application-Based Activity

The Clinical Reasoning Series in Ambulatory Care Pharmacy is approved by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties for the recertification of BCACPs. This year’s program will cover medication management of several cardiovascular diseases. Sessions will discuss how ambulatory care pharmacists can decrease the impact of cardiovascular disease and will review newly published data that may influence the applicability of recent clinical guidelines, particularly in specific patient populations. The program will update BCACPs with information on the most appropriate management of a variety of cardiovascular topics.

Learning Objectives
1. Recognize the impact of heart failure on medication selection for treatment of co-morbid disease states.
2. Critically evaluate national guidelines and current primary literature to develop patient-specific treatment plans for the management of heart failure, atrial fibrillation, dyslipidemia and hypertension.
3. Recommend optimal treatment targets for heart failure, atrial fibrillation, dyslipidemia and hypertension in specific patient populations.
4. Identify opportunities to optimize ambulatory care pharmacy services in cardiovascular care areas.
