The CHFS is committed to promote continued and enhanced collaboration between the CHFS and the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA). We are pleased to offer CHFS members complimentary HFSA membership by virtue of being a member of CHFS.

Joining is easy! Simply contact us for more details. 

OMT-Heart Failure Certificate Program

The Optimal Medical Therapy Certificate Program (OMT-HF) was developed by the HFSA to close the gap in guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) and implementation. OMT provides guidance to practitioners who treat patients with HF but don’t specialize in Advanced HF and are seeking an update on the optimal utilization and dosing of the latest evidence-based treatments.

CHFS members can now receive a 20% reduction in the cost of the OMT-HF Certificate Program to Canadian providers who are members of the CHFS.

Visit the HFSA website here for more information about the program.

If you are interested in the OMT-HF program, please contact us to receive the discount code.
