Nursing Practice

Attention clinicians! AAHFN has added several new items to the Resource area of the website.

In the Advanced Practice section, an excellent case study on Sleep Disordered Breathing has been posted. This case highlights the need for assessment of this disorder in our heart failure patients as well as the challenges of treating this problem. We plan to add case studies on a monthly basis (have a good one? send it in!)

In the Clinical Resource section, we have two new additions:

--First, a practical guide for Comprehensive Assessment and Symptoms of Heart Failure (CASH) has been posted. This was developed by the Membership Committee and provides a great, "quick" resource guide.

--Second, a summary of TJC Core Measures for heart failure and myocardial infarction have been posted. Nurses who practice in the in-patient setting and those involved in outcome measurement will find this a helpful summary.

Check these additions out and then post a message on our message board and let us know what you think!

AAHFN is professionally managed by Association Headquarters Inc., a charter accredited association management company.
