Heart Failure - Educational Modules

The Heart Failure Society of America has prepared a series of educational modules designed to help patients learn to live successfully with heart failure. The advice in the modules can help heart failure patients feel better, stay out of the hospital and live longer.

The modules are self-contained and written in easy to understand language. Each module provides practical information on a specific topic that is useful to both patients and their families. Each module also includes questions should ask their doctors or nurses. Patients should actively work with their health care providers to achieve the best outcomes.

If you have questions about these educational modules you may email the HFSA at edu_materials@hfsa.org.

These modules are not intended to replace regular medical care.
