It is estimated that there are 920,000 individuals living with chronic heart failure in the UK. With improvements in the survival of people following a heart attack; development of effective treatments for heart failure; an increasingly aging population, it has never been more important for health care professionals to have a good understanding of the management of this condition. This course is aimed at providing easily accessible, up to date, information on the key issues in heart failure. You will be led through a series of topics that form the essentials of heart failure management and consider aspects of the provision of care in a variety of health settings. The topics are aligned to the recently published heart failure nurse competencies (January 2021) ranging from how to investigate suspected heart failure through to the role of the multi-disciplinary team in facilitating self-care. The well received format of short presentations and guided activities will be enhance through a series of case studies that focus on application to practice and consideration of co-morbidities. Your learning experience will be supported with opportunities to assess your progress with the use of the ‘knowledge check’ activities at the end of each section. This peer reviewed course has been developed by an experienced heart failure clinician dedicated to improving patient care through research and education. By participating in this course, you will enhance your knowledge and skills in heart failure management and strengthen the evidence-based care you provide to this patient group.
