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.
