Collaborative Care Strategies for Reducing Hospital Readmissions in Patients with Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Heart failure (HF) is a chronic condition that requires long-term commitment on the part of the patient in adhering to an often-complex therapeutic and monitoring regimen, including lifestyle modifications and pharmacotherapy, and on the part of the clinician in maintaining knowledge of the most current therapies and devices to maximize efficacy, minimize side effects, improve monitoring, and reduce hospital readmissions.

New treatments and technology have shown promise in improving outcomes in patients with heart failure, however compliance with treatment as a result of lifestyle, cost, and communication barriers, as well as monitoring heart failure symptoms at home remains burdensome for some patients and caregivers. These factors can contribute to hospital readmissions. The entire heart failure team must be involved and strategize with patients to reduce readmission rates and keep patients stable.

This CME Outfitters Snack features expert faculty presenting the rationale and evidence for the most up-to-date treatment and monitoring strategies for their patients with heart failure to improve quality of life and collaborative care strategies to decrease hospital readmissions.
