Heart failure in general practice: Putting latest recommendations into practice advanced course

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).

On-demand webinar: Take to heart - The absolute risk reduction approach to preventing ASCVD

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.

Clinical audit: Heart health checks and lipid lowering therapies for primary prevention of CVD

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.
