HFSA 2017 Comprehensive Heart Failure Review Course & Update



Event Summary

We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 HFSA Review Course on October 12-15, 2017 at the Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale, AZ. Please take some time to review the information below to help maximize your conference experience.


The 2017 Comprehensive Heart Failure Review Course builds upon HFSA’s successful 2015 Review and 2016 Board Review Courses by incorporating results of new research studies, increasing focus on practical management recommendations, addressing issues encountered in practice, adding case studies, and providing breakout sessions in areas of special interest.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the epidemiology of heart failure and implement strategies for the prevention of heart failure.
  • Describe the pathophysiology of heart failure, including normal physiology and compensatory and maladaptive mechanisms.
  • Assess and track the patient with acute or advanced heart failure, using non-invasive and invasive tests and biomarkers.
  • Implement guideline-based therapy for patients with chronic heart failure, including pharmacologic agents and non-pharmacologic options, such as diet and exercise; and implantable devices.
  • Apply appropriate care strategies for patients with pulmonary hypertension, RV failure, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, cardiorenal syndrome, peripartum and infiltrative myopathies.
  • Manage comorbidities in patients with chronic heart failure, including sleep disordered breathing, anemia, and depression.
  • Implement strategies for effective disease management of the patient with advanced heart failure, including palliative care and transition to outpatient care.
  • Describe characteristics of optimal candidates for cardiac transplantation or mechanical circulatory support.
  • Apply strategies for atrial and ventricular arrhythmia management.
  • Practice effectively in the context of health care reform and merit-based incentives
