Optimising Clinical Success With Foundational Heart Failure Treatment
Published: 05 December 2022
This video series is dedicated to the adoption of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and initiation of guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) in daily practice.
In this first discussion, Prof Andrew Coats (Heart Research Institute, Sydney, AU) and Dr Mikhail Kosiborod (Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute, Kansas City, US) address how to optimise clinical success using foundational heart failure treatment.
Split into three short videos, Prof Coats and Dr Kosiborod start by summarising current foundational heart failure therapy and how guidance has recently changed across the spectrum of ejection fraction. Following this, they explore recent evidence supporting initiation of GDMT and offer practical advice for the implementation of treatment, including possible solutions to the early uptake of GDMT.
Watch the next video in this series 'Personalising Your Approach to Heart Failure Treatment'.
