The Heart Failure Policy Network (HFPN) has launched the Spotlight on worsening heart failure, which highlights the actions that decision-makers can take to prevent heart failure hospitalisations.
Worsening heart failure is the deterioration of heart failure signs and symptoms, which can occur for weeks before hospitalisation is required. If detected quickly and managed appropriately, there is an opportunity to prevent severe heart failure episodes, leading to improved outcomes and reduced healthcare costs.
This report outlines key challenges and best practice to improve the detection and management of worsening heart failure. Eight heart failure experts from across Europe contributed to the Spotlight, including clinicians, heart failure nurses and patient advocates.
