This online course will emphasize clinical practice guideline evidence to consider in the rehabilitation of patients with heart failure. It will focus on what the clinician should know, what examinations should be done, and what interventions are evidence-based.

In this course, we will compare the American Physical Therapy Association Heart Failure clinical practice guideline publication to the Canadian Heart Failure clinical practice guideline.
