The Heart Failure Policy Network (HFPN) is excited to announce the full programme of the 2022 Heart Failure Policy Summit, taking place over four online sessions in October and November.
New clinical guidelines and innovation offer hope of improving the lives of the 10 million people living with heart failure in Europe, but only if we can deliver best practice care at an unprecedented scale.
United in the face of this challenge, heart failure leaders in all sectors will come together at the 2022 Summit, the essential annual forum for the heart failure community.
