Inherited cardiovascular disease diagnostic capabilities have evolved significantly over the last two decades. The rapid pace at which various aspects of care and management are changing can be challenging to stay on top of, highlighting the need for a close partnership between the multidisciplinary specialized team, families and other care providers.
In this webinar, Dr Andrew Krahn, heart rhythm specialist and current Canadian Cardiovascular Society president, will review the inherited cardiovascular patient’s journey from a first event to the dissemination of the diagnosis to family members, demonstrating the importance of an ongoing partnership with key members of a shared care team.
