  • : Online

This free online learning module provides 15 clinical questions and immediate answers about an original peer-reviewed article written for GPs.

Relevance to General Practice

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death among women. Important sex differences in CVD risk factors, pathophysiology, presenting symptoms, treatment, preventive strategies and outcomes are increasingly recognised. More focus on female-specific features of CVD might help the development of targeted therapeutic interventions for both primary and secondary prevention in women.

  • Manage an asymptomatic woman at risk of CAD
  • Recognise and manage a woman with symptoms of CAD
  • Review how your practice could facilitate cardiovascular risk assessment and surveillance of women who have experienced pregnancy complications
