This half-day webinar will educate attendees on the contemporary management of various arrhythmia-related clinical scenarios encountered in the setting of heart failure, including the role of catheter-based strategies and complex device therapy. Attendees will also improve their skills in managing patients before and after device implantation. 

Aimed at subspecialty trainees in heart failure, it will also be of interest to general Cardiologists, electrophysiology and device specialists and all other members of the multi-professional team involved in the care of patients with heart failure.

During this webinar, you will:

  • Improve knowledge and confidence in managing patients presenting with heart failure and atrial fibrillation and/or ventricular arrhythmia
  • Improve awareness of the indications for and limitations of complex device therapy in heart failure
  • Improve skills in the clinical management of patients with complex devices
