Acute Heart Failure

Improving Care For Patients With Acute Heart Failure

In collaboration with an international group of experts, Oxford Health Policy Forum delivered a policy initiative aimed at improving care for patients with acute heart failure. The report called for the needs of patients with acute heart failure to be addressed by means of clear policy initiatives and rational redesign of patient management pathways and healthcare provision.

Evidence is presented to show how change at the policy level has the power to prolong life and promote efficient use of resources.

The recommendations contained in the report have been endorsed and adopted by the Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology as part of their Global Heart Failure Awareness Programme, and many other professional and patient groups.
