Monday, 09th April 2018

THE benefits of exercise and the importance of eating well for people living with heart failure; these are just a number of the topics to be addressed at a special public education meeting on heart failure organised by the Irish Heart Foundation in conjunction with the Mater Hospital in Dublin.

The event which takes place on Thursday, April 12 from 6.30 to 9 p.m. in the Ashling Hotel, Parkgate Street in Dublin is a free public information evening for people with heart failure and their families, healthcare staff and anyone with an interest in heart failure. The evening which will feature talks by leading medical experts from the Mater Hospital Dublin aims to increase awareness and understanding of the condition.

Speakers will include Dr Niall Mahon, Consultant Cardiologist at the Mater Hospital in Dublin, Edel Kavanagh, Heart Failure Nurse Specialist; Fatma Omar, Clinical Dietitian; and physiotherapist Karen Craddock who has special expertise in cardiac physiotherapy.

A number of heart failure patients will also address the meeting and share their personal experiences of living with heart failure.

More than 90,000 people in Ireland live with heart failure and most of them live active and comfortable lives. Heart failure is a very manageable condition if caught and treated early.
