Women & heart disease


Webinar summary

23 August 2018

Heart disease is a leading killer of Australian women but is still often thought of as a disease of middle-aged men. This webinar summarises the current state of knowledge on sex specific differences in the pathogenesis, presentation, management and outcomes of cardiovascular disease, and presents the current evidence base on the relationship between hypertensive and metabolic complications in pregnancy and cardiovascular risk. We also discuss how you can utilise this evidence along with existing tools to appropriately advise and manage female patients in relation to cardiovascular risk.
