Event Details

Approximately 6.5 million Americans have heart failure, there are 960,000 new cases annually, and 1/3 of the U.S. population is at risk for developing heart failure. Because of this high incidence and prevalence, NPs are faced with the management of complex heart failure patients in the outpatient setting. Learn strategies for optimization of guideline directed medical therapy for both Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction and Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction. Key considerations for medication management of varying patient volume states in the outpatient setting will be discussed, as well as crucial aspects of transitioning patients from hospital to home.
