Advances in the treatment and management of heart failure and structural heart disease continue to emerge, compelling the practice of cardiology to constantly evolve. These advances must be implemented into clinical practice to guarantee the best care for patients affected various cardiovascular conditions. Expert faculty will cover a wide range of topics including the management and state-of-the-art treatment for heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias as well as the latest transcatheter structural heart disease interventional procedures. Participants will return to their practice equipped with the latest evidence base and practical information to improve patient outcomes.
