  • : Online

Get to grips with heart failure diagnosis, management and a multi-disciplinary team approach, in this case-study based ALM.

Learn why, how and when to use the new ARNI class of medications and leave the ALM with a template for creating an effective heart failure management plan. This highly practice-focussed activity provides practical tools to deliver the best possible care for heart failure patients, in line with the new 2018 Heart Failure Guidelines. 

Relevance to General Practice

The GPCE offers GP delegates over 50 topic choices over three days. The subjects span many therapeutic areas allowing GPs to self-select the topics of most interest to the individual and their practice.
