Advanced Cardiac Disease

We offered this webinar on Feb. 21, 2019.

Heart failure is the leading cause of death in the US, yet accounts for less than 20 percent of hospice admissions. The goal of this webinar is to teach healthcare professionals to recognize what were once routine and manageable exacerbations as signs of unstable terminal illness, and to understand why hospice improves quality of life when proven treatments no longer can can.
