HFSA Module 1 – Taking Control of Heart Failure

Heart Failure Awareness Week – Monday

Taking control of heart failure

Many people with heart failure lead normal, active lives. They do so because they have learned to take good care of themselves. You too can take control of heart failure by understanding and carefully following your treatment plan. The Heart Failure Society of America has prepared a series of 11 Modules to help you learn to live successfully with heart failure. This is Module 1.

Current heart failure symptoms

Your symptoms may seriously limit your activities right now. You may feel frightened by your diagnosis. You may also feel discouraged about your treatment plan. The advice in this series of modules can help you feel better, stay out of the hospital and live longer. It can also build confidence in your ability to live well with heart failure and its treatment.
