The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.


The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 16.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

 


MOC STATEMENT


Successful completion of this CME activity enables the participant to earn up to 16.00 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC points.

 


AMERICAN ACADEMY OF FAMILY PHYSICIANS


This Live activity, Thrombosis and Thromboembolism 2018, with a beginning date of 10/18/2018, has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 16.00 Prescribed credit(s) by the American Academy of Family Physicians. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

 


NURSE PRACTITIONERS and REGISTERED NURSES


For the purpose of recertification, the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board and American Nurses Credentialing Center accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ issued by organizations accredited by the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education). We would also suggest that learners check with their state licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for re-licensure.

 


PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS


The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) states that AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ are acceptable for continuing medical education requirements for recertification. We would also suggest that learners check with their state licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for re-licensure.

New options for testing and diagnosis of thrombotic disorders

Important developments in epidemiology and pathophysiology

Best practices for stroke prevention (and prediction) in atrial fibrillation

Guidance to navigate the nuances of prescribing dual antiplatelet therapy

When and how to use new oral anticoagulants and interventional devices

Personalized medicine and lipid biology

Updated lipid guidelines (and controversies surrounding them)

Expert advice to incorporate the latest science into your practice

This program has provided practical and timely education about innovations in this field since 1987. First-time and returning attendees consistently report that the knowledge they acquire from this update changes their practice and drives better outcomes for patients.


Participants will learn state-of-the-art approaches to preventing VTE in medically ill patients; how dual anti-platelet therapy can prevent MI, stroke, and leg amputation; improved stroke prediction and prevention; and a better understanding of the link between inflammation and thrombotic illnesses.


Attendees stay current with the state of the art for:


DVT/PE diagnosis and testing

Parenteral and oral anticoagulants

Atherothrombosis: etiology, pathophysiology, therapy

Anti-inflammatory therapy to reduce risk of cardiovascular events

Hypercoagulability: testing and management

Pharmacomechanical catheter-directed therapy

New approaches to treat high LDL cholesterol and hypertriglyceridemia

Dual antiplatelet therapy: dose, duration, reversibility

Stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation
