Are you, or a loved one, living with heart failure? Join Croí, the Heart & Stroke Charity, and leading experts, for a webinar to learn how to manage the condition. This free webinar takes place online using Zoom on Thursday, May 26th, from 7 – 8 pm.
Expert guest speakers on the night will include Dr John Barton, Heart Failure Consultant, Galway University Hospitals; Emer Burke, Advanced Nurse Practitioner (Heart Failure Integrated Care), Galway University Hospitals; and Ian Burnett, who is living with heart failure and will share his patient perspective. The special guest moderator on the night will be Aistė Štaraitė, a heart failure patient and Chair of the Global Heart Hub Heart Failure Patient Council, of which Croí is a founding Affiliate.
The interactive panel discussion will address your questions about living with heart failure.
Heart failure occurs when the heart is unable to pump blood around the body as well as it should. It does not mean that the heart has stopped working, but it means that the body is not getting the oxygen and nutrients that it needs to function normally.
“Heart Failure is a serious chronic condition, but it doesn’t have to stop you from living. There are lots of things that you can do to help manage your condition, including medical treatments, adjusting your lifestyle, and self-management”, says Dr Lisa Hynes, Croí’s Head of Health Programmes.
This event is in recognition of International Heart Failure Awareness Week (May 9th – 15th). Register now and submit your questions at www.croi.ie/webinar, or call Croí on 091-544310. Don’t miss this special event!
