New Heart Failure Learning Resources
These online modules and recorded webinars provide opportunities to learn about best practices in heart failure care.
In 2014, a grant team led by Brenda Zierler, PhD, RN, FAAN facilitated the development of quality improvement projects at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) Heart Failure units and the Regional Heart Center (RHC). In 2016, with additional funding from HRSA, the Northwest Heart Failure Collaborative Project ECHO was developed to provide training webinars to healthcare teams in rural and urban underserved populations across the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI) region. Didactic presentations from an array of different health professionals provides current evidence-based clinical management of advanced heart failure for all health professionals.
In addition to the live webinars, we have developed a series of online Heart Failure Care Management Modules in partnership with experts from the UW and UWMC on essential components of quality, patient-centered care. Topics covered in this series were specifically chosen to enhance clinical practice and improve heart failure outcomes throughout the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho (WWAMI) region and beyond. The self-paced modules are freely accessible and may be completed in any order. Additional modules will be added as they are completed.
