Managing heart failure in the community

Posted on: July 6th, 2023 by Kieron Bradshaw No Comments

A new online training session provides a guide to the management of heart failure in the community, focusing on proactively managing symptoms to prevent disease progression and repeated admission to hospital. The session also supports educating patients to monitor and self-manage their condition, and provides an overview of how the multidisciplinary team can work across health sectors to provide effective integrated care for those with heart failure.​

The training is part of the Heart Failure and Heart Valve Disease elearning programme, which now contains 12 sessions in total. The elearning programme aims to support multidisciplinary professionals to develop knowledge of diagnosis and the optimisation of management of heart conditions. It is targeted at clinicians in primary and community care settings, including GPs.

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and NHS England and NHS Improvement have launched the first phase of their new Heart Failure and Heart Valve Disease elearning programme; including 3 elearning sessions designed for clinicians across primary care and community settings, such as GPs.

Jo Churchill MP, Minister for Public Health, Primary Care and Prevention spoke at a Westminster Hall Debate on 11 March 2021 about improving awareness of heart failure. Jo said that this elearning programme was developed “to support healthcare professionals, in learning more about heart failure and heart valve disease, supporting them to better recognise the symptoms of heart failure and to diagnose, manage, and support heart failure patients”.

Professor Nick Linker, National Clinical Director for Heart Disease, stated “I am delighted to support this elearning resource, which will equip clinicians, both medical and non-medical, with the skills and knowledge they need to better support patients with heart failure and heart valve disease”.

The elearning sessions aim to develop health and care professionals’ knowledge about heart failure and heart valve disease. This includes information relating to diagnosis and the optimisation of management. Sessions take approximately 20 minutes to complete and there are assessments on key learning points. Learners may download a certificate on completion of each session, to demonstrate continuing professional development.
