Internists play a critical role in the long-term management of patients who have experienced an acute coronary syndrome (ACS).  The landscape of antiplatelet therapy has changed with the addition of newer drugs; it is important for internists to be aware of similarities and differences between therapies and their use in post-ACS management. Optimal patient interactions after an ACS require a comprehensive knowledge of guideline-recommended lifestyle and pharmacologic therapies, as well as intensity, dosage, and duration of therapies.  Patient adherence to a secondary prevention strategy, and effective internist-patient and internist-cardiologist communication are important to reduce the risk of adverse cardiovascular events.  This program will provide internists with a current overview of antiplatelet therapy for ACS patients, and state-of-the-art risk factor reduction strategies from recently released guidelines.
