Program

Hosted by the University of Ottawa Heart Institute and Heart&Stroke™, the 2018 Canadian Women’s Heart Health Summit is taking place April 5-6, 2018 at the Westin Ottawa Hotel located in downtown Ottawa, Ontario. 

Building on the success of the April 2016 Summit, this event will bring together approximately 250 national and international experts and stakeholders to further advance women’s heart health. Together, we will transform and enhance Canadian women’s lives through research, awareness, policy development and care. 

This is an accredited opportunity for knowledge exchange for a variety of stakeholders including primary care providers, cardiologists, gynecologists, pharmacists, nurses, cardiac rehabilitation providers, allied healthcare providers, researchers, policy-makers, community partners and women with lived experience.

Objectives

  • Bring together national and international leaders, knowledge-users, and women with lived experience to strengthen our capacity to develop and disseminate strategies to improve cardiovascular health among women.
  • Identify emerging areas in research and clinical practice centred upon cardiovascular conditions affecting women across their lifespan.
  • Delineate strategies for addressing the gaps in research and clinical practice for cardiovascular disease in women, improving risk stratification, diagnosis, and therapy from a sex and gender perspective.
