This webinar will bring GPs fully up to date with the latest international clinical guidance on CHF, cutting through the complexity to provide clear pathways to early identification, accurate diagnosis and optimal management.

This webinar includes an opportunity for all participants to take part in an interactive Q&A with host speaker Dr Aaron Sverdlov.
