Venous disease is ten times more prevalent than arterial disease with more than 45 million Americans suffering needlessly. That encompasses 25% of all women and 15% of all men. Less than 4% of individuals with venous disease have been treated. With evolving clinical guidelines and technological advancements added to the industry, it is easier now than ever for patients to seek treatment. We can change the conversation. With current regulatory mandates and evolving healthcare legislation it is imperative that healthcare providers are able to navigate this process to allow them to better care for their patients.

The CoxHealth Venous Symposium is designed for primary care providers, mid-level providers, practice managers, nursing staff, ultrasound technologists, and others who care for patients with venous disease in a hospital or clinical practice setting. This conference is designed to deliver evolving, evidence-based principles for the management of your vascular patients. Exploring best practice recommendations, emerging technologies and state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment modalities. Take a peek inside venous stasis ulcers, wound care, out-patient treatment options, and more.
