CME Activity Description

Activity Description
EP Cases for the Real World is a highly educational annual symposium that presents recorded ablation cases from leading centers around the world that demonstrate interesting clinical situations, techniques, and technologies.  Each case will be accompanied by expert commentary by leading international experts in the field of ablation.  The cases will focus on complex atrial and ventricular ablation.  There will also be time for audience interaction and questions after each case.

Activity Goal
This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/IOM competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, and Practice-Based Learning.

Target Audience
The symposium is intended to meet the educational needs of electrophysiologists, cardiologists, fellows, and allied healthcare professionals with a clinical focus in complex atrial and ventricular ablation, as well as LAA Closure.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate the different strategies in the ablation of complex arrhythmias
  • Assess the potential advantages and disadvantages in the use of different ablation strategies.
  • Review the use and application of new technology in ablation of arrhythmias.
