TUCSON, Ariz. — A clinical research project underway at the University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center seeks to reduce bias and remove barriers to equitable treatment for advanced heart disease through the implementation of standardized training programs for health care providers.
“Our goal is to assess real-world effectiveness and implement SOCIAL HF for the allocation of advanced heart failure therapies, such as heart transplant and ventricular-assist device implantation,” said Dr. Breathett, who is a board-certified advanced heart disease and transplant cardiologist.
