'Beating the Killer Called Heart Failure' MEDTalk 2: The Burden of Heart Failure – a Patient Perspective

Log in or register to watch video.

The real-life management of heart failure is never as cut-and-dry as textbook cases suggest, with a multitude of quality-of-life issues and comorbid conditions that require management to be specific to the patient. In this interview session, we hear from a patient and his GP about how they have worked together to battle heart failure.

Please note the Slido Q&A function is no longer accessible.
