1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit Hours
1.00 MOC Points


Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Genetic Disease Update.

In this presentation, attendees are provided with a contemporary update on thegenetic evaluation of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).  In addition to describing the relevant genetic causes and outlining the broad implications of genetic testing in DCM, we explore a case example demonstrating the family based genetic evaluation of DCM.  Finally, we introduce future directions of DCM genetics that will become relevant to future clinical practice. Learners should also  expect to learn updated and detailed information on genetic causes of hereditary breast ovarian cancer, and management of patients with this condition.
