Learning Objectives

After watching this webinar, participants will: 

  • have the latest updates on iron physiology and on the pathophysiology of iron deficiency in heart failure;
  • learn when and how to screen and diagnose iron deficiency in heart failure; and
  • learn how to evaluate management options in iron deficient patients with heart failure.

 

Need Assessment and Expected Outcome

Iron deficiency is a frequent co-morbidity in patients with heart failure. Its occurrence is independent of the presence of anaemia, although the two conditions may co-exist, and is associated with increased mortality and morbidity in heart failure.
It is important to improve education on the occurrence and appropriate diagnosis and management of iron deficiency and to highlight the inefficiency of oral iron supplementation.
