Short Course in the Clinical Management of Common Vascular Diseases - E-learning

Interests: Management / Clinical Management / Common Vascular Diseases


If you have not previously attended one of the earlier vascular courses this is an ideal opportunity to get an all-in one perspective on the common diseases of the vascular system (including cardiovascular disease, vascular complications of metabolic disease, cerebrovascular disease and peripheral vascular disease). These conditions are linked by the enormous burden they place on health services and funders in South Africa and only through adequate knowledge can we hope to promote patient education, quality of life and medication compliance, thereby reducing the economic burden of these conditions.
