Overview

Heart failure (HF) is a complex syndrome brought on by impairment of the structure or function of ventricular filling or blood ejection. These changes can significantly decrease quality of life, accompanied by edema, dyspnea, and fatigue. The disease is widespread and progresses in severity, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality.

This course is built on the latest HF guidelines and seeks to help learners better understand this prevalent, serious disease. Topics include pathophysiology, etiology and epidemiology, morbidity and mortality, diagnosis through the use of biomarkers and other screening tools, impact of HF hospitalization, hospitalization care goals, and team-based care.
