We know how important physician-to-physician relationships are to cardiac care. As Oregon's only fully comprehensive heart care program, we partner with providers around the region to care for patients with heart and vascular conditions.
The OHSU Knight Cardiovascular Institute offers many Continuing Medical Education (CME) opportunities to the provider community. From our annual Salishan conference for primary care providers, to our full-day accredited conference for first responders, to international meetings, OHSU is committed to working with our community partners in the fight against cardiovascular disease.
OHSU regularly publishes convenient fact sheets on a variety of cardiovascular subjects to help you manage patients in your practice as well as keep up with the latest advances and technologies available at OHSU. You can also download a copy of our most recent referral guide.
Innovations in Cardiovascular Health
The OHSU Innovations in Cardiovascular Health 2022-2023 report highlights work in clinical care and research that expands the possibilities for cardiovascular health.
Here’s a look at how we are transforming care for people affected by cardiovascular disease.
- People with cardiogenic shock get immediate, multidisciplinary attention from OHSU’S Shock Team, which pulls out every stop to save them.
- Heart patients can now get lifelong care under the umbrella of OHSU’s Knight Cardiovascular Institute, which has expanded its care to all stages of life.
- The sickest heart patients at OHSU now receive specialized critical care from two cardiologists who are helping establish a new subspecialty, cardiac critical care.
- The link between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and heart attack risk is becoming better known through the leadership of an OHSU cardiologist.
- Patients with obesity, who are at risk for heart disease, have newer and better weight loss options at OHSU’s Center for Preventive Cardiology.
OHSU is proud to collaborate with community hospitals throughout Oregon and southwest Washington, to help patients get the best cardiovascular care closer to home.
