Milwaukee Heart Failure Symposium 2018

Heart failure is the progressive stage of most cardiac illness and the only cardiovascular disease rising in incidence, prevalence and mortality. The treatment for heart failure has changed dramatically and become more complex in the past 10 years. In this symposium, we will present up-to-date knowledge to help clinicians and allied health providers identify, evaluate and treat heart failure and related conditions.

It will also be of interest to fellows, residents and allied health staff with an interest in heart failure.

  1. Encourage application of primary and secondary preventive measures to reduce the incidence, prevalence and the economic burden of heart failure
  2. Know the most current evidence-based diagnostic & therapeutic strategies in heart failure & pulmonary hypertension
