HFSA Virtual Board Certification Review 2020


Upon completion of the activity, participants will demonstrate improved competence and ability to: 

For the Certification Examination in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology:

  1. Identify gaps in knowledge about advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology
  2. Focus study efforts on filling identified knowledge gaps
  3. Practice for the certification examination with ABIM-style multiple-choice test questions

For Clinical Practice:

  1. Describe the epidemiology of heart failure, including environmental factors, and implement strategies for the prevention of heart failure
  2. Describe the pathophysiology of heart failure, including normal physiology and compensatory and maladaptive mechanisms
  3. Assess and follow the patient with acute or advanced heart failure, using non-invasive and invasive tests and biomarkers.
  4. Implement guideline-based therapy for patients with chronic heart failure, including pharmacologic agents; non-pharmacologic options, such as diet and exercise; and implantable devices
  5. Implement appropriate care strategies for patients undergoing chemotherapy or with pulmonary hypertension, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, or cardiorenal syndrome.
  6. Manage comorbidities in patients with chronic heart failure, including sleep disordered breathing, anemia, and depression
  7. Implement strategies for effective disease management of the patient with advanced heart failure, including palliative care and transition to outpatient care
  8. Provide peri-operative management of heart failure patients undergoing cardiac transplantation or implantation of a mechanical circulatory device

Concise presentations by national experts will focus on blueprint content and will be augmented by board-review type questions posed using an audience-response system.

Each webinar is 30 minutes in length. This series is available to all registered attendees in the online meeting platform under the OnDemand tab to be completed at the attendee's convenience.
