Webcast: Challenging Cases in Patients with Iron Deficiency and Heart Failure

Addressing iron deficiency (ID) in patients with heart failure (HF) has become an important aspect of optimizing guideline-directed care in HF, as outlined by recent evidence and updated guidelines. During this webinar, expert faculty utilize challenging cases to discuss the importance of addressing ID in HF, as well as practical considerations for the diagnosis and treatment of ID in this setting.

This activity is part of the Iron Deficiency in Heart Failure Digital Education Hub.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Review current approaches for screening and diagnosis of iron deficiency in patients with heart failure.
