Purpose /Goal:
Coronary artery disease (CAD) post-transplant is a morbidity and mortality risk for our transplant recipients. The etiology of CAD is often associated with metabolic disease that can develop in transplant recipients. Diabetes, hypertension and obesity are factors that increase the risk of developing coronary artery disease post transplantation. This Webinar will be led by an abdominal transplant surgeon and a transplant cardiologist as they discuss the development of CAD and preventative measures for risk modification.
 
Target Audience:
Members of the donation and transplantation community serving diverse populations to include administrators, coordinators, physicians, nurses, surgeons, managers, quality improvement specialists, social workers, and other donation and transplantation center professionals and their colleagues.
 
Learning Objectives:
At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:
  • Identify 2 factors involved in the development of coronary artery disease after solid organ transplant.
  • Describe the signs and symptoms of coronary artery disease post transplantation.
  • Discuss strategies for risk factor modification in the prevention of coronary artery disease.
