UCLA Heart Failure Symposium 2019: State-of-the-Art Updates & Therapies for Advanced Heart Failure

Course Description

Heart failure affects approximately six million Americans and is the most common diagnosis for acute hospitalization in patients over 65 years. Over the next decade, we will see a dramatic increase in the number of patients in the community with advanced heart failure who can benefit from advanced therapies for complex cardiac disease. Academic medical centers, such as UCLA, have an opportunity to integrate treatment advances into a comprehensive patient-centered heart failure management program. UCLA Health wants to enhance the role of the primary care physician and primary cardiologist as the central provider for continuity of care for these complex heart failure patients.

The Eighth Annual UCLA Heart Failure Symposium 2019 will:

  1. Discuss general heart failure treatment options including short and long term LVAD therapy, heart transplantation, pulmonary hypertension management, high risk percutaneous and structural interventions, complex congenital heart disease management.
  2. Emphasize the need for developing networks linking academic centers with community physicians to manage these patients through the evolution of their disease pre and post advanced cardiac intervention.
  3. Discuss heart failure therapies in women’s health, cardiac rehabilitation and address patient and care-provider specific needs and perspectives.
