This session has been written by a multidisciplinary group of cardiology and palliative care specialists to help palliative care clinicians become more confident with managing patients with heart failure and knowing when to liaise with heart failure services.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Apply knowledge of the disordered pathophysiology in the management of heart failure
• Explain decompensation of heart failure, classes of heart failure drugs and when and which drugs to consider stopping in advanced heart failure
• Describe the different types of device therapy in heart failure and what needs to be considered before the patient is approaching end of life
• Discuss the management of refractory symptoms such as breathlessness
• Identify why it is important to work collaboratively with other services
