At the conclusion of the summit, participants will be able to:
- Describe known and novel risk factors, pathophysiologic changes, genetic loci, and biomarkers associated with increased risk of AF and their potential implications for AF prevention
- Recognize important new avenues for research in assessing and modifying risk for AF
- Explain optimal use of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic interventions for managing or terminating AF
- Identify and describe emerging treatments and technologies likely to improve outcomes for patients with AF
- Review current and emerging research explaining mechanisms, risk factors, and biomarkers associated with VT/VF and SCD
- Research and identify markers and strategies to improve assessment of risk for SCD associated with VT/VF
- Understand and appropriately implement patients for guideline-recommended interventions for ventricular arrhythmia
- Recognize benefits and risks of available interventions for VT/VF
- Identify and explain research findings, including research into new and emerging medications and technologies that can improve outcomes for patients with VT/VF
- Contribute to research efforts aimed at clarifying mechanisms leading to VT/VF and from VT/VF to SCD and identifying improved or new strategies for prevention or intervention
- Recognize barriers to early initiation of both bystander in-hospital CPR
- Contribute to the development of education and research toward improving resuscitation outcomes
