Freedom from failure: heart failure through the lens of population health


Event details

At a time when deaths from coronary heart disease and stroke are markedly declining, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, deaths from heart failure are increasing. The management of this devastating long-term condition is estimated to account for 2% of the entire NHS budget, with 70% of this spent on acute hospital admissions. Both prevalence and incidence of heart failure increase steeply with increasing age and with deprivation but outcomes for patients are improved with earlier diagnosis and treatment.  

Join the King's Fund for this free online event, where we will consider how heart failure is a growing population health problem and the solutions to help overcome the challenges this condition presents. These include preventing the underlying causes of heart failure, as well as identifying risk factors for the condition, such as access to diagnosis, particularly for older people and those from more deprived communities.
