Educational Modules on Heart Failure

heart failure education

The HFSA developed and published a series of modules designed to help patients and their loved ones, and individuals at risk communicate better with their doctor or nurse. These modules are not intended to replace regular medical care.

Medical professionals may receive a limited number of copies at no cost for their clinic. Larger quantities are available for purchase (prepayment including a shipping charge required). For information on cost please call 301-718-4800 or send an e-mail to info@hfsa.org. Materials may be viewed and ordered online at abouthf.org.
