The West Coast Vein Forum is structured for all practitioners who include venous therapies in their practice.
Rather than a comprehensive overview, The West Coast Vein Forum curriculum will focus on a variety of topics involving challenges and controversies that face the practicing vein specialist. Each session will include experts providing brief lectures on topics in venous treatment followed by extended time of panel discussion and audience participation.
In addition, there will be special lectures by leaders in the field to give larger perspectives on venous care. Also, demonstration sessions will be provided on ultrasound imaging and the use of proper bandaging and compression for the venous expert. The West Coast Vein Forum will provide clinicians with:
-A unique educational opportunity beyond a basic introduction to venous disease
-State-of-the-art lectures by leaders in venous disease
-Proper ultrasound assessment of the patient with venous disease
-Effective methods to manage ablations in difficult situations
-The appropriate timing and use of phlebectomy and sclerotherapy

The timing and venue is ideal for the busy clinician. Held in the Napa Valley, there will be opportunity for an extended stay to enjoy world famous wine country. Each evening, receptions will be held with opportunity to talk informally with expert faculty and other attendees. The venous practitioner will return home with expanded knowledge and strategies for treating patients with venous disease.
