Heart failure (HF) is a chronic condition that requires long-term commitment on the part of the patient in adhering to an often-complex therapeutic and monitoring regimen, including lifestyle modifications and pharmacotherapy, and on the part of the clinician in maintaining knowledge to prescribe the most advantageous interventions. Although guidelines are widely available for the treatment of HF, gaps exist between these guidelines and actual care. Additionally, newly available remote monitoring systems for patients with HF allow the clinician to intervene before increasing decompensation occurs, thereby decreasing hospital admissions.1

This CME Outfitters Live and On Demand will feature expert faculty presenting the rationale and evidence for clinicians to incorporate guidelines for the most up-to-date treatment and monitoring strategies for their patients with HF to improve quality of life and decrease hospital readmissions.
