Heart Talk - Evidence-based Educational Video Series about Heart Failure
Qualidigm is pleased to offer a series of three videos “Heart Talk: Living with Heart Failure,” developed to guide health care providers, patients and their families in managing heart failure. The video series is available free of charge and made possible by funding from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The video series offers straight-forward information about heart failure – information that patients should know, and what all health care providers should be communicating to patients.
Each of the three videos contains short modules which can be watched consecutively or individually. The choice is yours – watch when it is most convenient for you.
If you have any questions or comments about these videos please contact us at HeartTalk@qualidigm.org
**We now have ENGLISH and SPANISH SUBTITLES available in Microsoft Silverlight for all of the videos!
