Heart Failure Learning Resources

Learn about current best practices in interprofessional heart failure care.

Introduction

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 tutorials in partnership with experts from the UW and UWMC on essential components of quality, patient-centered care. All of our content is free to access.
