National Heart Failure Awareness Week

The Canadian Heart Failure Society (CHFS), together with our committee of cardiovascular professionals and partner organizations, is pleased to announce the 3rd annual National Heart Failure Awareness Week campaign scheduled for May 3-9, 2021.
As the impact of heart failure (HF) continues to grow across Canada and throughout the world, it is becoming increasingly important to engage health care providers in raising awareness among patients and their families. With the aim to improve the quality of life for people living with HF, this year’s campaign will focus on self-management and self-care in a virtual world.

We encourage you to promote Canadian Heart Failure Awareness Week by engaging in activities to raise awareness around HF. To support you in these efforts, an updated TOOLKIT of materials is now available. More information about materials, webinars, how to follow us on social media and how to access resources can be found below.

A poster, patient handout and toolkit for social media engagement are now available for download.
