This event will be of particular benefit to pharmacists involved in providing and developing services for patients with heart failure in secondary care, primary care and GP surgeries. 

The event is suitable for pharmacists who have recently specialised, as well as those who are working at more advanced levels in managing complex patients many of whom have co-morbidities.
