The Heart Failure (HF) and Cardiomyopathies Learning Pathway program features sessions that portray the team approach in substance and action. Attendees will find a program that provides state-of-the-art evidence-based education presented by a diverse array of speakers from a broad range of disciplines and career stages. The program brings together the leading global experts in each field to maximize learning in an interactive environment and features various cardiovascular team members making presentations and participating on panels.

The ACC/WHF partnership brings a focus on global health to ACC.20/WCC and attendees will learn about innovative teaching and training techniques for health care teams around the world, with sessions such as Heart Failure Around the Globe to give insight into care in other regions.

Given the complexities of treating heart failure patients and their potential comorbidities, sessions covering data from PARAGON, DAPA, and new data on amyloidosis are hot topics. Other sessions cover a broad range of topics in acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock and ambulatory care.

The practice of medicine today calls on providers to care for the whole patient in the context of other medical issues such as cardio-oncology or arrhythmia and heart failure. Join your colleagues and peers in Chicago for the HF and Cardiomyopathies Learning Pathway. Only ACC.20/WCC allows you to learn from the experts, share your experiences, and network with others in a forum that delivers the most complete picture of what is happening with cardiovascular medicine and cardiovascular teams in 2020.
