Continuing Education

CVIMC also provides ongoing educational material and counseling regarding cardiac disease, medications and postoperative care throughout the patient's hospital say and prior to the patient's discharge from the care of CVIMC nursing staff. Continuing education is provided on the patient's diagnosis and medications; available resources are registered pharmacists, nutritionists, case managers, medical-social workers, physical and occupational therapists, and respiratory therapists.
