Heart Failure in General Practice: Investigation and diagnosis

Early investigation is critical to determining the cause of heart failure, its mechanism and any exacerbating factors, allowing for management to be optimised for each patient. This module explores the diagnostic investigations essential for heart failure including echocardiography, ECG, chest X-ray and blood tests, as well as guidance on interpreting results.

Heart Failure in General Practice: Non-pharmacological management

Non-pharmacological management is essential for the management of heart failure, and patient education is crucial for effective self-management. This module explores the many non-pharmacological management options for HF both in the general practice and patient self-care settings, highlighting the roles that multidisciplinary health professionals can take.

Heart Failure in General Practice: Progression, comorbidities and end-of-life care

The management of exacerbating factors and comorbidities to maintain quality of life is an important component of heart failure management. This module outlines ways to identify and control exacerbating factors and comorbidities that may affect HF, and explores the role of non-surgical devices and end-of-life care.

Heart Failure in General Practice: Multidisciplinary care and practical strategies

Multidisciplinary care can prevent heart failure in people at risk, prolong survival, reduce hospital admissions and improve quality of life. This module explores the effective use of multidisciplinary care for heart failure management, including the preparation of short and long-term management plans and referral to other health professionals.
