European Heart Failure Awareness Day 2013

The European Journal of Heart Failure

The European Heart Failure Awareness Day is designed to raise awareness of heart failure, including possible symptoms, and the importance of an early and accurate diagnosis and the need for optimal treatment. This Europe-wide initiative was developed through the combined efforts of the National Societies of Heart Failure across Europe, as part of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC)/Heart Failure Association (HFA) activity.

To mark this important event, the European Journal of Heart Failure is making 10 articles free for the month of May, and Oxford University Press is giving free access to the Oxford Textbook of Heart Failure on our online platform Oxford Medicine Online. We are also offering a 20% discount off all Cardiology books, and presenting a series of five topical discussions on the OUPblog.
