The Continuum of Heart Failure

Industry Webcast Sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Lilly USA, LLC; Not for CME/CE Credit

The objective of this program is to discuss the pathophysiology, disease burden, and management of heart failure (HF). The program will present data on HF prevalence and health outcomes, review the implications of type 2 diabetes as a common comorbidity, and provide guidance on diagnosing HF. It will conclude with a brief overview of current treatment options for HF.


Cardiovascular Disease Journey. “It’s the Little Things”: A Tale of Two Patients

Industry Webcast Sponsored by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation; Not for CME/CE Credit

This program follows two patients on their cardiovascular disease (CVD) journeys. Risk factors leading to the development and progression of atherosclerotic CVD and heart failure are discussed in the context of the patient experience over time. Strategies for primary and secondary prevention and optimization of guideline-directed medical therapy are also highlighted.

Updates in Heart Failure and Atrial Fibrillation

1.50 CME/MOC
1.50 AANP | 1.17 Pharmacology

Heart failure is a global pandemic that continues to increase in prevalence. Despite the availability of established and novel therapies, mortality and morbidity in heart failure remains high. Join us for this overview of heart failure classification and pathophysiology, the evidence base supporting various treatments, and current guideline recommendations. Despite being the most common sustained arrhythmia in practice, the ideal management strategy for atrial fibrillation remains elusive for many clinicians. Accordingly, this session will review the classification and initial workup of patients with atrial fibrillation, with further discussion of the primary treatment goals. Stroke prevention therapies will be reviewed, along with means to achieve rate and rhythm control. Tune in to learn about ongoing gaps in the care of patients with heart failure and/or atrial fibrillation and how a standardized approach can help improve outcomes.

In recent years, promising evidence has emerged for new pharmacologic treatments for heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF); however, gaps in clinician prescribing for the current guideline-directed therapies still exist. Join cardiology experts Ty Gluckman, MD, and Alison Bailey, MD, as they review the current recommendations for guideline-directed medical therapy in HFrEF, discuss strategies for implementing it, and assess the evidence for new and emerging treatments for HFrEF and recently approved agents, including SGLT2 inhibitors, vericiguat, and omecamtiv mecarbil.

Peripheral artery disease affects nearly 9 million Americans and is associated with significantly increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Beyond initiation of therapies to reduce cardiovascular risk, many interventions used to treat peripheral artery disease aim to improve functional status and quality of life. Join us for this overview, where we'll review the epidemiology, classification, evaluation and treatment of this condition. Heart failure is a global pandemic that continues to increase in prevalence. Despite the availability of established and novel therapies, mortality and morbidity in heart failure remains high. Join us for this overview of heart failure classification and pathophysiology, the evidence base supporting various treatments, and current guideline recommendations.
