Heart failure (HF) affects an individual’s ability to engage in desired occupation leading to gradual loss of independence with ADLs, IADLs, and the development of activity limitations affecting their quality of life. Occupational therapists, being experts in behavior modification and activity analysis have a distinct role to play. This short course aims to fill this knowledge gap and provide foundational knowledge and treatment resources for practitioners and fully comprehend the pathophysiology and different evidence-based treatment strategies to promote optimal living for individuals with HF.
