The 2022 ACC Heart Failure Guidelines: What Do They Mean for Your Practice?

Topic:
  • Heart Failure

Course Published On:

Course Expiry Date:

Overview

Taking the recent ACC heart failure guideline updates as its core theme, this symposium will provide a succinct overview of the changes with one of the guideline’s primary authors. We will then consider how guidelines have evolved to accommodate the growing number of foundational treatments for heart failure and how we are moving towards personalised care. We also take a look at HFpEF, and assess how our treatment options have changed and what else can be expected for this population.

 

This symposium is part of Heart Failure Online 2022, a world-class virtual event dedicated to the latest heart failure treatment strategies to support better patient outcomes.

Commercial Support

This programme is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca. The scientific programme has not been influenced in any way by the sponsors.

Target Audience

This programme is intended to educate:

 

  • Heart Failure Specialists
  • General Cardiologists
  • General Practitioners (GPs)
  • Nurses, Pharmacists, and other Allied Healthcare Professionals

Learning Objectives

Upon participation in this programme physicians should be able to:

  • Summarise the main updates to the 2022 ACC heart failure (HF) guidelines
  • Compare updates from the ACC with the 2021 ESC HF guidelines
  • Recall guideline recommendations for the initiation of foundational therapy for heart failure
  • Adopt foundational GMDT early in the disease course
  • Postulate how ejection fraction will be used in future trials and in future guidelines
  • Review existing and forthcoming trial evidence on SGLT-2 inhibitors in HFpEF
