The course aims at implementing knowledge and critical discussion on the role of exercise in Heart Failure (HF) population of both systolic and diastolic origin. Exercise will be approached as a main limiting condition and marker of disease severity as well as a evidence-based interventional method to improve symptoms, clinical condition and outcome in the wide spectrum of HF populations. Live demonstration on how to assess exercise performance and specific phenotype response will be provided.
As learning complementary tool the course will provide sessions of statistics and how to perform an exercise trial. Participants will be directly involved in planning a trial on exercise intervention in either Heart Failure with reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF) and Heart Failure with a preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF).
The idea is to set up the designed studies for true collaborative multicenter trials.
