Optimising Treatment of HF
Following recent changes to guidelines in light of the publication of Phase III data with SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with HFrEF, with and without type 2 diabetes, this programme brings together a leading faculty to best inform of the latest clinical evidence and real-world application for optimising treatment strategies in heart failure.
Prof Martin Cowie (Imperial College London, UK), moderates the proceedings, that comprises a number of insightful presentations and a panel discussion, with contributions from Prof Giuseppe Rosano (St George's Hospitals NHS Trust, London, UK), Dr Javed Butler (University of Mississippi, US), and Dr Shelley Zieroth (University of Manitoba, Canada).
- Heart Failure Specialists
- General Cardiologists
- Allied Health Professionals
- Recall recent changes to guidelines following the publication of Phase III data with SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with HFrEF, with and without type 2 diabetes
- Describe the type and extent of clinical benefit observed when SGLT2 inhibitors are added to standard HF therapy in patients with HFrEF
- Assimilate prevailing hypotheses and insights from key thought leaders on optimal therapeutic sequencing of the ‘five pillars’ of HF therapy
- Apply newly gained knowledge on therapeutic sequencing to surrogate patient cases

The programme ‘Optimising Treatment of HF’ is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 1 hour of external CME credits.
Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity. EBAC works according to the quality standards of the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), which is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
Through an agreement between the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EBAC External CME credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EBAC credit to AMA credit can be found on the AMA website.
