  • Overview

    This program discusses new approaches for clinicians that have not been part of their armamentarium for the management of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). Several new therapeutic options targeting different mechanisms enable providers to incorporate the latest clinical data into their clinical practice. Clinical practice patterns for both the cardiovascular specialist and the general provider will need to evolve to improve the standard of care when managing patients with HFrEF.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the multi-disciplinary team, including physicians, nurses and pharmacists involved in the care of patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

    1. Discuss the clinical application of the latest guidelines and describe the implementation of strategies to improve adherence and clinical outcomes in patients with HFrEF
    2. Discuss treatment strategies for the management of HFrEF patients across cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular specialties
    3. Discuss newer pharmacologic interventions and integrate them within the current practice for appropriate patients
