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 4th annual National Heart Failure Awareness Week campaign scheduled for May 2-8, 2022

The goal of Heart Failure Awareness Week (HFAW) is to raise awareness, increase public knowledge and provide a better understanding about this chronic condition.
Heart failure is on the rise in Canada and throughout the world and it is now more important than ever for health care providers to get engaged in raising awareness among patients and their families. With this in mind, our 2022 campaign will focus on the theme Time to take action on heart failure.


To support you in your efforts, a Poster, a Patient Handout, and an Event Planning Kit to help you plan your event are now available for download. 

Other resources including sample content for twitter, presentation slides, links to useful websites, upcoming webinars, are also available below.


National Heart Failure Awareness Week has built-in sustainability through its partnerships with the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS), HeartLife Foundation, Société Québécoise d’Insuffisance Cardiaque  (SQIC), Canadian Council of Cardiovascular Nurses (CCCN), Canadian Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (CACPR) and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
