The Curriculum, Step by Step

Online, Self-Paced

Discover how new optimal medical therapy (OMT) guidelines are changing best practices in this comprehensive contemporary review of chronic HF. Case studies are included to illustrate gender and racial/ethnic challenges you face every day. Do you follow the latest clinical thinking with all your patients?

Live On-Site Meetings

Ask clinicians how they learn best and chances are they'll tell you they consult colleagues. Don't miss this chance to do just that in this 2-hour interactive live session that aims to reduce clinician performance variation in prescribing OMT for chronic HF patients. Click here for more information, including dates and locations.

Online Reinforcement

Reinforce your education with an online capture of one of our meetings as well as a provocative point-counterpoint on key chronic HF issues. A supplemental after-education individual coaching program is available and qualifies for an Improvement Activity to report under MIPS.
