Description

Because of the prevalence of cardiovascular disease, nurses must be equipped with the knowledge and skills to aid in its reduction. Recognizing patients at risk for cardiovascular disease and taking the initiative to educate patients of the behavioral and nonbehavioral cardiovascular risk factors can enhance other primary prevention strategies aimed to control the prevalence of the disease. In addition to nursing education used as a primary prevention strategy, nurses must also be aware of secondary prevention therapies aimed to minimize the burdens of known disease and complications associated with cardiovascular disease.

This course provides information to support nurses working across all healthcare settings who care for patients at risk for or who already have cardiovascular disease and chronic cardiovascular conditions. This course discusses nursing management associated with hypertension and hyperlipidemia and the pathophysiological processes associated with coronary heart disease and angina. Therapeutic strategies are discussed.
