NewsGuard 100/100 Score

The American College of Cardiology will host the annual Advancing the Cardiovascular Care of the Oncology Patient course on April 14-16, 2023, in Washington, DC. The course is intended for all members of the interprofessional care team-;including cardiologists, oncologists, pharmacists and nurses-;and aims to equip the global cardio-oncology community with the tools they need to improve patient care.

Ana Barac, MD, PhD, FACC, and Bonnie Ky, MD, MSCE, FACC, will serve as co-directors for the course, which will be available both in-person and online. The course will bring together clinicians and researchers from across the globe to share emerging strategies and best practices for managing the cardiovascular health of cancer patients.

I am proud to say that the ACC course has set the standards for cardio-oncology education, including joint presentations of oncologists and cardiologists modeling real-life patient care and collaboration across CV and oncology teams. This year, our theme is collaboration and innovation through science and for our patients. I am very excited about the first-ever joint sessions with the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Society of Hematology that are a testament of the commitment of our professional societies to collaborate and address the gaps that exist across specialties."
