Overview

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to the 3rd Annual Heart Rhythm Care in the 21st Century Conference, September 14 – 15, 2018. Building on our past success and your thoughtful feedback, we are once again offering an update in heart rhythm care presented by highly regarded experts both here at Cleveland Clinic and beyond. This CME event will provide a complete overview of current trends, ideas and innovations in heart rhythm care. It is designed to provide comprehensive, quality education for all healthcare professionals who care for patients with heart rhythm disorders.

A core curriculum will be offered as well as concurrent workshops offering content specific to cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs), EP lab, and pediatric arrhythmias. These workshops will be offered on Friday and repeated on Saturday to allow attendees to benefit from more than one workshop. Again this year, we are offering a heart dissection on Friday evening. This is a hands-on experience that will allow attendees to view the anatomic structures of the heart that impact electrophysiology. Additionally, to meet the expressed needs of our advanced device nurses, we have added a workshop on Saturday addressing advanced device programming.

Our hope is that you will make this a must attend conference in 2018.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Discuss appropriate indications and follow up of patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices
