Target Audience

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of cardiologists and other specialist clinicians with a focus on heart failure.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Evaluate patients with heart failure based on new consensus recommendations for definition, staging, and classification
  • Discuss the clinical profiles, trial designs, and recent data for SGLT-2 inhibitors in patients with HFrEF or HFpEF, including cardiovascular and renal outcomes
  • Incorporate SGLT-2 inhibitors into treatment algorithms for heart failure to reflect appropriate patient selection, safety considerations, and prescribing recommendations
  • Individualize treatment regimens for patients with heart failure with consideration of case presentation, practice guidelines, newly published evidence, and comorbidities, such as CKD

Program Overview

Heart failure medicine is dynamic, with recent approvals for use of SGLT2 inhibitors, and updated recommendations for definition, staging, and classification of heart failure. As heart failure therapies overlap into other specialties, it is more important than ever to use a patient-centered, multidisciplinary care team model. In this 90-minute Call-a-Colleague presentation, three experts will discuss the new consensus recommendations for heart failure and the evidence for using SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with different classes of heart failure as well as comorbidities. To illustrate how to individualize treatment regimens and the nuances of heart failure care, they will call in specialist colleagues for consults about practical considerations for prescribing SGLT2 inhibitors.
