Statement of Need

The purpose of this symposium is to update medical practitioners in the greater Midwest region as well as nationally on the future of cardiac electrophysiology (EP), and on new diagnosis and treatment guidelines in the care and management of patients with arrhythmias, heart failure and other issues impacting the electrical system of the body. Participants will learn about advances in ablation techniques, device management, appropriate use criteria, and survey new developments in guidelines and recommendations. A review of clinical trials that have helped change the clinical practice of EP will also be held. Participants in this symposium will examine the latest trends in Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) treatment options and gain a greater understanding of anticoagulation and stroke prophylaxis.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for physicians, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses and allied health professionals in the fields of electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, and vascular surgery.

Learning Objective

Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:

  • Discuss types of devices used for monitoring and treating arrhythmias.
  • Demonstrate the use of imaging techniques to improve procedural outcomes.
  • Apply guideline-endorsed, clinically applicable strategies to help resolve device-related issues.
  • Summarize clinical trial results that can be applied to improving the safety and efficacy of electrophysiology (EP) procedures.
  • Explain anticoagulation treatment and stroke prophylaxis options for cardiac patients.
  • Examine clinical evidence for the latest trends in LAA treatments.

Accreditation statement

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL) and the Kansas City Heart Rhythm Symposium (KCHRS). ACHL is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation

The Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning designates this live activity for a maximum of 12.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number 17273 for 12.5 contact hours.

Partial credit may not be awarded for CBRN credit; participation in the complete activity is required.

Physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses may participate in this educational activity and earn a certificate of completion as AAPA, AANP, and ANCC accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ through their reciprocity agreements.


Guidelines require that learners in CME activities be made aware of all relevant financial relationships affecting the presentation of the faculty member. ACHL ensures that all faculty and staff involved in the planning, development, and implementation of ACHL activities disclose financial relationships held within 24 months and that relevant financial relationships are mitigated before a CME activity occurs. Complete information will be provided to learners prior to the start of the educational activity.
