Webcast: Advances in Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Iron Deficiency in Heart Failure Patients
Iron deficiency (ID) with or without anemia is a common and important comorbidity in patients with heart failure (HF), and it can have significant impacts on morbidity and mortality. Despite this burden, the diagnosis and assessment of ID is not widely sought by clinicians that see patients with HF, leading to underdiagnosis, misdiagnosis, and delayed treatment. Recent trials and evidence have shown that i.v. iron repletion in HF patients with ID can improve symptoms, quality of life, and outcomes, and this evidence has been reflected accordingly in the updated HF guidelines. During this webinar, experts will discuss the latest advances in the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of ID in patients with HF.
This activity is part of the Iron Deficiency in Heart Failure Digital Education Hub.
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of US-based healthcare professionals, including cardiologists, endocrinologists, lipidologists, primary care clinicians (PCPs), registered nurses, advanced practice registered nurses, pharmacists, and other allied health professionals involved in the management and treatment of cardiometabolic patients.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Discuss the prevalence and clinical burden of iron deficiency in HF patients.
- Summarize current and emerging diagnostic approaches aimed to optimize the early diagnosis of ID in patients with HF.
- Review the efficacy and safety of intravenous iron repletion for the treatment of iron deficiency in patients with HF.
- Summarize guideline recommendations for the treatment of iron deficiency in patients with HF.
