Heart failure prevalence is high and rising, due not only to the increasing age of the population but also from general improvements in healthcare and use of better medicines. Patients with heart failure have a poor quality of life and reduced life expectancy.
It has a profound impact on the lives of patients and carers. It is a costly condition to diagnose and manage, representing 1–2% of total NHS expenditure. Recently, for the first time, however, there has been a significant reduction in the number of inpatient deaths.
To help you get up-to-date in this important area, BJC Learning has revised its comprehensive modular e-learning programme covering all aspects of this growing problem. It has been independently written by leading UK physicians and endorsed by the British Society for Heart Failure.
Each module has a series of multiple-choice questions. Its 10 hours of learning will lead to 10 continuing professional development (CPD) credits.
Vifor Pharma UK has provided an unrestricted grant to fund this activity and has not had any input into any aspect of this learning resource.The original programme was supported by an educational grant from Pfizer UK and Servier Laboratories Ltd.
