Investigating the Impact of Racial Health Disparities on Patients with Peripheral Artery Disease

Course Description: 

Racial and socioeconomic disparities in medication use have been associated with the failure to achieve therapeutic goals, increased rates of hospitalization, and increased mortality for multiple disease states, including peripheral artery disease (PAD). Lack of insurance coverage and being a person of color are associated with decreased access to care, delayed presentation with more advanced PAD, and worse outcomes, including decreased rates of revascularization and increased rates of amputation.

 

During this webinar, experts will review current PAD screening and treatment guidelines, explore evidence regarding racial disparities for PAD, and discuss strategies that managed care professionals can utilize for improving PAD outcomes across populations.


Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this knowledge-based activity, participants should be able to:

1.       Describe the risk factors which contribute to differences in prevalence of PAD across populations.

2.       Discuss the barriers to care for patient populations who may be more vulnerable to PAD and its complications.

3.       Identify evidence-based approaches to screening, risk assessment, and preventing complications from PAD.

4.       Identify evidence-based treatment options for different at-risk populations of patients with PAD.
