Heart Failure Support

Courses in this category (1)

The number of New Zealanders with chronic heart failure is growing as people live longer and as management of coronary heart disease improves. Chronic heart failure is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Effective, structured support from a multi-disciplinary health care team can help individuals with heart failure to stay well, enjoy a better quality of life, stay out of hospital and live longer.

Each member of the multi-disciplinary team has an important role in supporting individuals to:-

  • understand their condition
  • monitor and manage their symptoms
  • optimise their heart failure treatment
  • achieve lifestyle changes.

This eCourse has been developed to assist non-cardiac specialist members of the multi-disciplinary team to maximise their role in supporting individuals with chronic heart failure.

NB. This eCourse does not cover the management of advanced heart failure requiring specialised interventions, or end of life care. To find out more about this contact your DHB palliative care team.
