Course Description

This one-day program will provide an update of the most recent advancements of knowledge on inherited arrhythmic diseases that can cause sudden cardiac death in children and young adults. Internationally recognized experts will report on both basic science and clinical studies that impact how these diseases should be diagnosed and treated. The optimization of clinical management requires thorough understanding of disease pathophysiology and up-to-date risk stratification skills from a translational medicine perspective.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify and analyze the latest scientific advances and innovations in the field of heritable rhythm disorders.
  2. Review complex genetic abnormalities known to cause sudden arrythmogenic death syndrome.
  3. Discuss evidence-based approaches to variant analyses in putative genetic mutations of unknown significance.
  4. Discuss holistic approaches in treating sudden death disease including sports restrictions in the era of shared decision making.

Target Audience

Pediatric and adult electrophysiologists, pediatric and adult cardiologists, registered nurses, physician assistants, cardiology residents and fellows, genetic counselors, and family practice providers.
