Primary Care Heart Failure Audit - What have we learned?


Speakers:

This sponsored workshop has been organised and funded by Medtronic

To improve equity and access to specialist Heart Failure Care in Bury we have piloted a new audit service with the aim to deliver high quality, systematic and a seamless pathway to identify, diagnose and treat patients with Heart Failure (HF) and Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction (LVSD) aiming to identify patients potentially suitable for device therapy. The following benefits have been observed:

  • Ensures patients with HF (with / without LVSD) are optimally managed and treated to improve health outcomes
  • Ensures practices are compliant with NICE guidelines (e.g. TA314, CG108)
  • The service provides review by a Consultant Cardiologist
  • Increases clinicians’ knowledge around evidence-based strategies for managing and treating HF and LVSD
  • Delivers HF QOF indicators to their maximum thresholds
  • Increases the data quality of the HF and LVSD register

This session aims to share learnings so far with the wider audience.
