This course delivers a comprehensive review of the diagnosis and management of heart failure across its multiple stages. Heart failure is a prevalent and costly disease causing debilitating symptoms and excess mortality. While cardiac subspecialists provide essential testing and treatment at various stages of heart failure care, the majority of patient management is handled by primary care providers. A clinical format will highlight the practice dilemmas and key management strategies essential to enhance the attendees’ confidence in caring for these challenging patients.
To reinforce the knowledge gained from the course and ensure lasting value to each attendee’s practice, Mayo Clinic provides access to all course presentations with voice-over recordings after completion of the course. You must have attended the course as a live attendee in order to access these.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the spectrum of signs and symptoms suspicious for heart failure
- Describe typical diagnostic testing essential for the diagnosis and management of patients with heart failure
- Apply appropriate pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic strategies for patients across the spectrum of heart failure
- Describe when referral for advanced heart failure therapies is indicated
- Demonstrate complex decision-making when renal and/or pulmonary hypertension co-exist with heart failure
This course is appropriate for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, cardiologists, and primary care providers interested in an update on heart failure.
