HF pilot projects, HF Working Group of the Polish Cardiac Society

5 September, 2018

The HF Working Group of the Polish Cardiac Society has developed efforts to raise the profile of heart failure (HF) and the need for integrated HF care with the Ministry of Health.

Together with associations of GPs, the group is planning to launch pilot projects of multidisciplinary and integrated care in five hospitals in different cities in 2019. The project considers:

  • training for GPs on HF clinical guidelines
  • the creation of GP networks to better organise HF care
  • training for primary care nurses by specialist HF nurses.

The project will quantify the needs of people with HF to develop a sustainable reimbursement model for HF care in Poland.
