Developments in international guidelines mark pivotal moment for the heart failure community

News & Events

In the past two years, both the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) have published new heart failure guidelines, reflecting significant recent findings related to the diagnosis and treatment of the syndrome. Research continues to progress and will shape future recommendations, including offering renewed hope for people living with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. This is a pivotal moment for the heart failure community, and a chance for anyone passionate about the care of people with heart failure, to draw the attention of decision-makers to the value of guideline-recommended care.

To aid in this endeavour, HFPN has launched a dedicated resource for heart failure advocates: What’s new in international heart failure guidelines? The resource forms part of our wider programme of work, ‘From guidelines to action’, alongside a report and animation published in June 2022. It summarises the key changes in the ESC and AHA guidelines and considers what other developments we may expect in the future.

Importantly, the new resource provides tips on how heart failure advocates might advance the case for access to guideline-recommended care for everyone living with heart failure.
