89005 - Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: improving diagnosis and management. Jan 2017.

  • : Online

 

Online learning module based around an original peer-reviewed update on heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (diastolic heart failure)

Relevance to General Practice

- Half of the 1 million Australians with cardiac failure have diastolic heart failure. 
- There is a common misconception that a diagnosis of heart failure (HF) cannot be made in the presence of normal systolic function. 
- Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF, previously known as diastolic heart failure) is equally as common as heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF, systolic heart failure) but is less well understood. 
- Substantial incremental advances in the care of patients with HFrEF have been made over the past two decades or so with shown mortality benefit.

Learning outcomes
  • Recognise risk factors for the development of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), previously known as diastolic heart failure
  • Make a diagnosis of HFpEF
  • Implement treatment to reduce symptoms of HFpEF
  • Outline strategies for managing patients when there is no solid evidence to guide treatment choice
  • Delivery
