Date:
Thursday, March 19, 2015 – Saturday, March 21, 2015
Location:
Disney's Boardwalk Inn - Lake Buena Vista, FL
Description:
Heart failure is a devastating disease that causes debilitating symptoms and excess mortality. It affects more than 9.5 million people in this country, with over 680,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Despite our best efforts, more than one-third of patients with heart failure are re-hospitalized within weeks of hospital discharge. Certainly as our population ages, the number of patients afflicted with this disease will grow. The economic burden now exceeds 10 billion dollars, and is forecasted to grow.  It is essential that heart failure is recognized promptly and proven therapies are applied to manage this chronic disease. Healthcare providers play a pivotal role in the care of these patients. Using a case-based approach, this course will enhance the attendees’ confidence in caring for these challenging patients.

16th Annual ASE ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course

Date:
Saturday, May 2, 2015 – Tuesday, May 5, 2015
Location:
Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
Description:
The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) has specifically designed the ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course as a preparatory course for the National Board of Echocardiography, Inc.TM (NBE) ASCeXAM® and ReASCE® examinations. Lectures given will emphasize illustrative cases and as such will not be “canned talks” from other cardiovascular ultrasound courses. This review course will cover all aspects of cardiovascular ultrasound essential to these examinations, including physics, valvular heart disease, ischemic heart disease, congenital heart disease, and new technologies. The expert faculty will use case studies, lectures and interactive sessions to help prepare the attendee for the ASCeXAM® or ReASCE® examinations. An Audience Response System and question and answer sessions facilitate faculty interaction and self-guided learning. The 2013 Review Course has been designed with the computer-based examination administration in mind. There is more case-based learning and increased use of Audience Response Systems to simulate a digital multiple choice examination.
The ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course gives attendees the unique opportunity to interact with and ask questions of the expert Faculty. In a recent survey conducted by ASE, 97% of the people who took ASE’s ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course passed the echo boards.
