Managing Cardiovascular Risk in Patients With Diabetes

Register Now

Are you a clinician who works with patients who have diabetes?  Then you know that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in patients with diabetes. You also know that reduction of cardiovascular disease risk factors is a very important part of caring for your patients.  This educational program is open to all nurses, pharmacists, and dietitians who would like to learn more about the management of cardiovascular risks in patients with diabetes.  

Held over the course of two full-day sessions, this program will cover the following topics:

  • Advanced Cardiovascular Pathophysiology and Related Complications
  • Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests used in the Management of CVD
  • Pharmacotherapeutic Management of Hypertension
  • Pharmacotherapeutic Management of Hyperlipidemia
  • Nutritional Management of Cardiovascular Disease
  • Helping Patients with Tobacco Cessation
  • Physical Activity in CVD

Nurses, dietitians, and pharmacists can earn up to 12.5 hours of live continuing education contact hours (including 5.25 contact hours of pharmacotherapeutics content) through completion of the course.

This course is only held once each year, and space is limited - Register now to reserve your seat!

After completing both sessions of the course participants who are currently RI Certified Diabetes Outpatient Educators (CDOEs) in good standing will be eligible to sit for an exam to earn the credential of Cardiovascular Disease Outpatient Educator (CVDOE).  You must be a current CDOE in good standing and pass the exam to become a CVDOE.
