Learning Objectives

After watching a reasonable amount of Catheter Ablation (Heart Rhythm 2022), the learner should be able to:

  • Identify and analyze the latest scientific advances and innovations in the field of heart rhythm disorders.
  • Select appropriate, evidence-directed pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to achieve optimal outcomes for patients with heart rhythm disorders.
  • Recognize alternative perspectives regarding areas of controversy for which scientific evidence is insufficient, controversial, inconclusive, or confusing.
  • Utilize quality improvement measures, methods, and tools to foster systems-based improvements in heart rhythm care, outcome, and value.
  • Analyze and improve processes related to inter-professional teams, care coordination, patient engagement, and communication to optimize the delivery of patient- and family-centered care.
  • Assess the impact of regulatory and institutional policies, and societal and cultural norms, on safety, timeliness, equity (including diversity and inclusion), effectiveness, efficiency, patient-centered care, and value.
  • Utilize improved communication methods to engage with patients and caregivers for increased shared decision-making in the treatment of heart rhythm disorders
  • Evaluate the latest technology available for both professionals and consumers in the field of heart rhythm disorders.
  • Recognize disparities in health care and describe strategies to reduce these disparities in patient care.
  • Utilize shared decision-making resources in discussing monitoring and treatment of patients with heart rhythm disorders.
  • Describe the latest cardiac device advisories and/or recalls and explain how to share this information with patients and caregivers.
  • Explain the current and future trends in digital health that will impact the treatment of heart rhythm disorders.
  • Describe best practices for managing a device clinic, an AF center, and/or a multidisciplinary electrophysiology practice.
