Program Overview

Women have contact with the health care system at important touch points throughout the lifespan. These clinical encounters during the childbearing years, in the perimenopausal period and in later life present opportunities that could be leveraged to include, and when indicated, focus on, cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk reduction. The Effectiveness-Based Guidelines for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease in Women—2011 Update (A Guideline From the American Heart Association) highlight the fact that women who have had pregnancy complications are at increased risk of CVD. This session will explore factors that impact cardiovascular risk among women across their lifspan and opportunities for clinicians to optimize cardiovascular health among women in their clinical practice settings.


Learning Objectives

• Summarize the evidence that gestational diabetes, pregnancy-associated hypertension and preeclampsia predict future cardiovascular disease risk.

• Cite the prevalence of hypertension in women vs. men throughout the lifespan.

• Identify sex differences with regard to tobacco use and cessation.

• Summarize the impact of physical activity level on cardiovascular risk in women.

• Describe successful cardiovascular health improvement programs targeted to women in a variety of age cohorts.
