Identifying Risk in Women to Prevent CVD - Frankly Speaking EP 237

Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BC, NP-CMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Solid evidence shows that adverse pregnancy outcomes (APOs) correlate with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women. Evidence is also becoming clearer that lactation and breastfeeding may have CV protective benefits as well. Social determinants of health play a significant role in these diseases; facts support that Black, Hispanic and Asian American women suffer from worse pregnancy outcomes than White American women. Join us while we discuss the recent American Heart Association (AHA) guideline update regarding the association of increased risk of CVD and metabolic disease with APOs and what can be done to reduce these risks.

Guest: Alan M. Ehrlich, MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

Patients with a history of transient ischemic attack (TIA) are at increased risk of stroke in the future. The ABCD2 score is the most used risk assessment tool for people with acute TIA, but it is not recommended for this purpose by the National Institute for Heath and Care Excellence (NICE). Join us for today’s episode as we describe a new validated risk assessment tool developed in Canada you can use to classify patients as low, medium, or high-risk for stroke over the 7 days following a TIA.


Join us for this episode as we review the recently published (Dec. 2020) cohort study in JAMA on using bisphosphonates to prevent hip fractures. We will review the utility of bisphosphonates after 5 years and how to discuss their risks and benefits with patients.


Do Sensible Shoes Improve Function for People with Knee Arthritis? - Frankly Speaking EP 224

Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BC, NP-CMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

More than 250 million individuals worldwide have osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee and the burden on individuals and healthcare systems is enormous. There is no cure for OA, with treatments such as NSAIDs and acetaminophen aimed towards symptom reduction and improved functioning. Most evidence-based guidelines include the use of supportive shoes, however little evidence exists on effectiveness of these types of shoes. It is also unclear what the characteristics of a supportive shoe are and what type of shoe is best for OA. Join us as we discuss a recent randomized controlled trial that compared 2 types of shoes, and their benefits in symptom reduction and functional improvement of knee OA
