2018 HFSA Annual Scientific Meeting
Following this meeting, attendees will be able to:
1. Describe the epidemiology of HF and implement strategies for the prevention of HF.
2. Discuss the current scientific basis of HF from the perspectives of cardiovascular physiology, neurohormones, tissue factors, molecular biology, and genetics.
3. Identify the findings of basic science research and current clinical trials and describe their implications for current and future HF therapy.
4. Implement optimal guideline-based therapeutic options for HF, including pharmacologic agents, non-pharmacologic options, such as diet and exercise; and implantable devices.
5. Manage comorbidities including hypertension, diabetes, depression, sleep apnea, and chemotherapy.
6. Demonstrate awareness of psychosocial, economic, regulatory, and ethical issues in the treatment of patients with HF.
7. Implement strategies for effective management of the patient with HF, incorporating the family, encouraging self-care, and employing the team approach.
8. Outline strategies for transitioning patients from impatient to outpatient care and for reducing hospital readmissions.
9. Engage in performance measurement and other site-based research.
10. Outline strategies for more effective communication.
Specific learning objectives for each of the scientific sessions and satellite symposia are listed in the meeting app.
