This half day pre-conference session will discuss the current therapies for managing Heart Failure.  It will highlight the different approaches to management of those with preserved ejection fraction and those with reduced ejection fraction.  The first session will discuss the management of the patient with reduced ejection fraction, presented by Dr Kuljit Singh on how he manages these patients.  Professor Scott McKenzie will follow this with a discussion on the management of patients with preserved ejection fraction, discussing the possibilities that may arise from ongoing trials.

The interactive workshops will be driven by Clinical Pharmacists already involved in multidisciplinary heart failure programs.  They will highlight the specific roles for specialist pharmacist input in the management of patients with heart failure in both hospital and community settings.
