SGLT-2 Inhibitors - Another Piece of the Puzzle in Heart Failure
Presented, and recorded, at the ESC in Barcelona, this unique broadcast, ‘SGLT-2 Inhibitors - Another Piece of the Puzzle in Heart Failure’, is centred around the presentation of the latest SGLT-2 inhibition data and how this translates to the treatment of Heart Failure patients.
Radcliffe Medical Education is delighted to introduce the globally renowned faculty. Chaired by Prof Scott Solomon (Boston, US), this session brings together a leading international faculty of Prof John McMurray (Glasgow, UK), Prof Carolyn Lam (Singapore, SG) and Dr Muthiah Vaduganathan (Boston, US) to assess the latest data for SGLT2 inhibitors in heart failure (HF) and how to apply it in real-world practice.
This programme is intended to educate:
- Global cardiologists
- Heart Failure specialists
- Primary care physicians
Upon participation in this programme, physicians will be able to:
- Recall the results of key trials in HFmrEF in different patients' sub-groups
- Describe how SGLT-2 inhibitors can be used across the range of LVEF
- Apply emerging diagnostic approaches for HFpEF and HFmrEF
- Implement best-practice strategies across the range of LVEF
This satellite symposium is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca who had no involvement in the creation of the content.
