Review your management of patients with HFrEF (heart failure with reduced ejection fraction) in this clinical audit, and update their treatment to be in line with latest recommendations including the "four pillars" approach.
The new 2022 Australian consensus statement on heart failure has brought significant changes to how general practitioners should manage this condition. In this advanced course you will understand how to classify HF into heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), heart failure with mildly reduced ejection fraction (HFmrEF) or heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).
On-demand webinar: Exploring diagnosis and management of heart failure in preserved ejection fraction
Hosted by Dr Shane Nanayakkara (interventional, structural and heart failure cardiologist) and A/Prof Ralph Audehm (General Practitioner), this on-demand webinar describes the diagnostic process in HFpEF and explores differences between the management of HFpEF and heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).
HFpEF 2hr module: Diagnosis and management of heart failure in preserved ejection fraction in primary care
This 2-hour educational activity explores the diagnosis and management of HFpEF in general practice, with a focus on updated management recommendations from the 2022 Australian Consensus Statement on Heart Failure.
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is largely preventable with a number of modifiable clinical factors accounting for the majority of risk. The absolute risk approach is potentially more than twice as effective at reducing death from coronary heart disease as the individual risk factor approach. In this on-demand module, A/Prof Ralph Audehm outlines how you can implement the absolute risk approach in your practice, including use of Heart Health Checks.
In this clinical audit, you will conduct Heart Health Checks for your patients, providing comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessments and developing ongoing management plans involving pharmacological and lifestyle strategies to reduce cardiovascular risk.
