Heart Failure Online 2022 On-demand
Published: 09 May 2022
Heart Failure Online (HFO) is a new innovative virtual event, that brings together a leading international faculty to create a rich, interactive experience to best inform the global heart failure community of the latest developments and advances in clinical practice.
With patient management and outcomes at its core, Course Director Prof Andrew Coats (President of the Heart Failure Association and Professor of Cardiology, University of Warwick, UK) leads an interactive programme of discussion, opinion and case studies focusing on the patient journey.
Note, the live version of this session was CME accredited; this on-demand version is not.
Key Learning Objectives
Following the activities, participants will be able to:
- Select foundational and advanced management strategies in complex patients
- Discuss the validity of using ejection fraction to determine optimal treatment strategies
- Assess the likely impact of health technology on future practice
- Identify the underlying causes of heart failure
- Select appropriate interventional and device-based treatments for treating underlying causes of heart failure
- Assess the impact of the multidisciplinary team on heart failure outcomes
- Discuss the importance of using quality of life and patient self-assessed measures relative to hard clinical end points
- Heart Failure Specialists
- General Cardiologists
- General Practitioners (GPs)
- Nurses, Pharmacists, and other Allied Healthcare Professionals
Day One: Individualising Treatment
Day Two: Complex Phenotypes and Advanced Treatment
Day Three: Beyond Foundational Management
Andrew JS Coats
Director of the Monash Warwick Alliance and Academic Vice-President
Prof Andrew Coats is President of the Heart Failure Association and Professor of Cardiology, University of Warwick, UK. He is an Australian-British academic cardiologist and inventor. Prof Coats' main interest is heart failure.
From 2012 to 2017 he was Director of the Monash-Warwick Alliance, and before that served as Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Medicine of the University of Sydney.
He is an Australian-British academic cardiologist as well as a successful fundraiser, university administrator and inventor.
Prof Coats is Editor-in-Chief of the Cardiac Failure Review editorial board.
University of Manitoba, Canada
Dr Shelley Zieroth is at SBH Heart Failure and Transplant Clinics and serves as Head of the Medical Heart Failure Program, WRHA Cardiac Sciences Program, and as Associate Professor of the Section of Cardiology at the University of Manitoba, Canada.
Dr Zieroth attended medical school at the University of Manitoba, where she went on to train in internal medicine and cardiology. She completed her postdoctoral clinical fellowship, specializing in advanced heart failure and cardiac transplant, at Toronto General Hospital. Dr Zieroth has lectured internationally on the subject of heart failure.
Dr Shelley Zieroth is an Editorial Board member of Cardiac Failure Review.
Professor and Senior Consultant
Prof Carolyn Lam is a Senior Consultant at the Department of Cardiology and Director of Women's Heart Health at the National Heart Centre Singapore, having pioneered the first Women’s Heart Clinic in Singapore. Prof Lam is a world-renowned specialist in heart failure (particularly heart failure with preserved ejection fraction [HFpEF]). Her work in the PARAGON-HF and EMPEROR-Preserved trials led to the first FDA-approved treatment for HFpEF and the first robustly positive clinical outcomes trial in HFpEF to-date.
Prof Ewa Jankowska is Professor of Medicine and Head of Laboratory of Applied Research on Cardiovascular System at the Department of Heart Diseases, Wroclaw Medical University, Poland. Her clinical and research interests include the role of peripheral mechanisms in the progression of heart failure, co-morbidities in heart failure, and experimental model of tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy.
Prof Jankowska is an Editorial Board member of Cardiac Failure Review.
Ileana L Piña
Dr Ileana L Pina is Professor at the Department of Medicine (Cardiology) and Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health at Montefiore Einstein Center for Heart and Vascular Care, US.
Dr Piña has a particular research and clinical interest in rehabilitation of heart disease in patients with heart failure. She completed a NHLBI HF ACTION trial and is in the process of examining recovery after exercise which could be translated to an additional parameter that may better predict prognosis of outcomes. In addition, there was a R21 to NHLBI to examine Vitamin D levels as another predictor from the HF ACTION database.
