The European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy is proud to present an engaging and interactive course to improve the professional knowledge and skills for cardiovascular pharmacotherapy in older patients.
In Europe and the Western World in particular, the proportion of older persons is dramatically increasing, which is predicted to add tremendous extra pressure to the strained health care systems.
Cardiovascular drugs are among the most prevalent drugs administered to older people. In particular diuretics, antihypertensives, NOACs, antiarrhythmics, lipid lowering drugs and glucose lowering drugs. All these drug classes can lead to increased frailty and should in particular not be prescribed on a one-size-fits-all-basis to older people, and polypharmacy should be countered.
Our goal is for all participants to leave the meeting with the improved competence and confidence to deliver better, personalized therapy of older people, which in turn will have a positive impact on services and patient outcomes.
