This webinar has been cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. 

This webinar will update and equip professionals in primary care on how to implement an evidence-based approach to managing peripheral arterial disease.

You will be given a unique overview of an important clinical condition that can have a significant effect on patient’s lives. National and international experts will show you how to approach a patient suspected of having peripheral arterial disease, and what can be done to improve patient outcomes.

The international faculty will also address important environmental factors which may not always be associated with vascular disease.

This webinar provides an excellent learning opportunity to improve your knowledge base and management of vascular disease, and how to improve the lives of these patients.

There will be ample opportunity for interactive panel discussion and questions between the formal virtual lectures.

CPD learning applied. 

At the end of this webinar delegates will:

  • Have a complete understanding of the importance of managing peripheral arterial disease in a primary care setting
  • Be knowledgeable about the current management approach to the condition
  • Have awareness of the external factors that have a bearing on vascular disease and action that can be taken to mitigate these factors
  • Understand how 'evidence' can be implemented in clinical practice

This is a joint webinar with the General Practice with Primary Healthcare Section of the RSM.
