December Webinar: De-Frailing the Older Adult with Cardiovascular Disease Through Cardiac Rehabilitation
February 21st Webinar:
De-Frailing the Older Adult with Cardiovascular Disease Through Cardiac Rehabilitation
Presented by: Dr. Jonathan Afilalo
1. To provide efficient techniques to identify “frail” patients in need of CR
2. To outline why CR is the single best treatment option to counteract frailty
3. To present the latest evidence for CR in frail cardiac patients
Dr. Jonathan Afilalo is a cardiologist and researcher at the Jewish General Hospital, and a tenured associate professor at McGill University. He holds a graduate degree in epidemiology from McGill University and level III training in advanced cardiac imaging from Harvard University. His research program is focused on the assessment and treatment of frailty to improve health-related outcomes and successful aging in older adults with cardiovascular disease. He led the first (JACC 2010) and largest (JAMA Cardiology 2016) studies on gait speed in cardiac surgery, and subsequently led the multi-national FRAILTY-AVR study (JACC 2017).
He is currently conducting the PERFORM-TAVR trial on home-based exercise and nutrition in frail older adults undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement. Dr. Afilalo (@FrailtyMD) and his team have developed AI-powered software (coreslicer.com) and digital tools (frailtytool.com) to automate measurements of frailty and muscle mass/strength for clinicians. These contributions have been recognized by awards from the Royal College, Canadian Cardiovascular Society, and American College of Cardiology. Dr. Afilalo is founding director of Canada’s first fellowship program in Geriatric Cardiology.
