Cognitive impairment is prevalent in patients living with heart failure and was recently shown to negatively impact functional abilities, life expectancy, medication management and patient self-care. Clinicians have a responsibility to recognize and address cognitive impairment as an integral component of personalized care for patients with heart failure (HF). The upcoming HFSA Heart Failure Seminar: Focus on Cognitive Impairment in Heart Failure will feature co-authors Eiran Gorodeski, MD, MPH, FHFSA and Parag Goyal, MD, MSc, FHFSA as they identify key takeaways from the Cognitive Impairment in Heart Failure: A Heart Failure Society of America Scientific Statement. They will later be joined by co-authors Robert DiDomenico, PharmD, FHFSA and Connie White-Williams, PhD, RN, for an open discussion and Q&A session with the attending audience.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is estimated to affect some 700,000 Americans. Treatment usually includes the use of non-vasodilating beta-blockers followed by non-dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers if these therapies are not effective. Since the release of the most recent guidelines, mavacamten has been approved, and clinical trial data on emerging therapies including aficamten, ranolazine, and evolving gene therapies have been published. In our commitment to providing education that enhances clinical skills and improves patient outcomes, HFSA has identified a need for education in the selection and utilization of current and emerging therapies for HCM.

The HFSA Heart Failure Seminar: Focus on Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is part of the educational seminar series, featuring a multidisciplinary panel of experts presenting a case-based program that is designed to provide the most current information on the genetics, pathophysiology, diagnosis, clinical trial data, and optimal use of current and emerging treatment options for the management of patients with HCM.

The optimization of GDMT in the treatment of HF has been shown to reduce morbidity and mortality and improve patient outcomes. However, many HF patients do not receive GDMT and/or achieve the recommended target dose of their medications. Studies have shown that while most patients are managed by cardiologists or primary care practitioners, GDMT and target doses of medication can also be successfully achieved by expanding this role to other providers. Education on GDMT, optimizing medications, and these successful strategies are needed to expand patient outcomes. This program will provide practitioners with updated information on the universal definition of heart failure, guideline-directed medical therapies (GDMT), and strategies that optimize medical therapies (OMT) to improve patient outcomes.
