This educational day has been designed to provide a state-of-the-art update to all healthcare professionals involved in the care of people with heart failure. Organised by Dr Andrew Ludman from the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust and Dr Owais Dar from the Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, it will focus on acute and hospitalised heart failure and will cover the issues which affect patients and professionals on a daily basis in all areas of the hospital.

With an internationally renowned faculty, the programme will appeal to professionals from emergency care, intensive care and anaesthetics, acute and general medicine, elderly care, cardiology and general practitioners wishing to expand and refresh their knowledge.

The day is being hosted in association with the Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust with a whole session dedicated to the rapidly evolving field of mechanical circulatory assistance and cardiac transplantation. This will provide the knowledge and confidence needed for those not working in specialised transplant centres to bridge the gap for their patients to access advanced heart failure therapies.

With an interactive format and a lively faculty, the day will be an enjoyable way to bring yourself up to date with managing all aspects of acute heart failure.

This event is a joint collaboration among the University of Exeter Medical School, the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust and the Royal Brompton& Harefield NHS Trust.

The following companies are exhibiting at this meeting: Astra Zeneca, Bayer, Boehringer-Ingelheim, Daiichi-Sankyo, Servier and Shire.
