Approximately 6 million American adults currently suffer from heart failure (HF), with projections estimating that the prevalence will increase by 2030. More than 900,000 new cases of HF occur annually and it is responsible for 1 of every 9 deaths. Approximately 30% of patients with HF die within 1 year, 50% within 5 years, and 99% within 10 years of diagnosis or first hospitalization. For the first time in more than a decade, mortality rates associated with HF have been increasing, underscoring the need for improved quality of care. This educational activity will discuss clinical advances in managing HF to enhance patient outcomes.
