Description

In these featured PeerView educational offerings on heart failure, we delve into a number of crucial and contemporary aspects of patient care. Several important questions come to the forefront:

  • How can we recognize heart failure sooner and implement timely treatment, while taking into account the individual needs and wishes of the patient?
  • What do recently updated heart failure practice guidelines and the latest clinical data tell us about how we can optimize treatment and prevent hospital admissions?
  • How can we employ system-based approaches, such as the Hospital to Home initiative, to reduce heart failure readmissions and mortality?
  • What strategies can be adopted to improve coordination of care within the multidisciplinary team?

To learn more, join Dr. Akshay S. Desai for an engaging online educational activity, and then register to have one of our experts join you and your colleagues on-site for an interactive discussion. We also hope that physicians will take advantage of the unique opportunity to participate in a Self-Directed Heart Failure Quality Improvement Module—assess your practice, set goals according to national quality measures, and improve the level of care for heart failure patients!
