Congestive Heart Failure is an intimidating and devastating condition, for patients and caregivers alike. Rehabilitation for those with Heart Failure is under-represented, and often part of a ‘cardiac rehab’ protocol- though the needs of those with HF can be very different. This seminar provides an overview of Congestive Heart Failure, updated evidence and treatment pathways, and information that therapists and nurses working with patients will find practical and usable. CHF affects 23 million worldwide, and over 6 million in the US alone. Increasingly, people with CHF are receiving post-acute care in rehabilitation hospitals and at home, and the clinicians caring for them need up-to-date and effective information to provide the best care possible.
This 2 CEU seminar discusses updated approaches, debunks myths related to treatment, and provides the participant with education to make informed decisions about the plan of care they design. Useful ‘cheat sheets’, resources and an extensive manual inform the package that is included with this practical and user-friendly seminar. We have adapted this information to then be immediately applicable to the clinician working in the home, with tools and resources that can be used the next day!
