Heart Failure Module – Episode 6

This is the sixth and final session in a series dealing with Heart Failure. The aim of this series is to improve the recognition, diagnosis and management of heart failure.

 

Learning Objectives

 

This session will be a panel discussion which will include a Family Doctor, Heart Failure Nurse and Cardiologist specialising in heart failure. Dr Silvio Grixti describes a case of a patient who presented with heart signs and symptoms of heart failure. This is followed by the cardiologists’ appraisal and then the heart failure nurse specialist describes her role in the follow up of these patients in the heart failure clinic. The primary objective of this episode is to help the health care professional better understand the patient journey as experienced in our local scenario. Through a patient example, one will better understand the treatment, monitoring and multi-disciplinary approach a heart failure patient receives upon admission to Mater Dei Hospital and the role the Family Doctor plays inthese patients'  journey.
