Free, Online CE Activities on Chronic Heart Failure

Earn free continuing education credits by viewing the educational content from the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) 2016 Congress session, Optimizing Treatment and Improving Care Transitions in Chronic Heart Failure, supported by an educational grant from Amgen. Available in two formats, you can choose from the webcast version, Optimizing Treatment and Improving Care Transitions in CHF, or the electronic publication, Chronic Heart Failure Monograph.

Both versions contain discussions from experts Nancy M. Albert, PhD, CCNS, CHFN, CCRN, NE-BC, FAHA, FCCM, FAAN, of Cleveland Clinic, Jeffrey S. Borer, MD, of The Howard Gilman Institute for Heart Valve Diseases and the Schiavone Cardiovascular Translational Research Institute, and Paul J. Hauptman, MD, of Saint Louis University School of Medicine. Topics include the epidemiology, pathophysiology and diagnosis of chronic heart failure and how strategies to decrease hospital readmission rates and overall costs through better diagnosis and disease management impact patient outcomes. Safety, efficacy and clinical application of the current and emerging therapeutics, the new recommendation for the management of chronic heart failure, and appropriate strategies to optimize pharmacologic treatment of chronic heart failure are also discussed.
