Heart Failure CPG & Pocket Guide
Heart failure is one of the most common reasons for new or recurrent hospitalizations among persons over 65 years of age. Considerable progress has been made during the past decade in providing symptomatic relief for such patients. By implementing the processes and practices outlined in this guideline (with an easy to follow algorithm), and by keeping up with new recommendations for managing heart failure as they emerge, the interdisciplinary care team can improve the quality of life for patients with heart failure in the nursing facility.
The pocket guide provides a quick reference to the current AMDA Heart Failure (HF) Clinical Practice Guideline in a clear concise format. MIPS HF Process Measures are included along with Outcome measures. The ACC/AHA stages of HF and the New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional classification provide information about the presence and severity of HF. Evidence review recommendations are also included.
