The Heart Failure Association believes that it is crucial to provide high-quality educational material to its members and to the international medical community in general. To this end, the HFA has decided to enrich its educational offer via a series of interactive, online courses to improve the implementation of the latest guidelines on diagnosis, treatment and management of heart failure.
The goal is to improve the implementation of the latest heart failure guidelines regarding diagnosis, treatment and management of patients. The format will be interactive e-learning courses, accredited for Continuing Medical Education (CME), that will be hosted on the HFA website and accessible for all online and full HFA members.
