2018 Heart Failure Awareness Week
AAHFN is beginning a year - long campaign during Heart Failure Awareness Week to provide tools for patients with heart failure and their caregivers. The Patient Education Committee developed tips for medication adherence.
Every Dose, Every Day
How do I remember to take my medications, and why?
Taking your medications is part of the daily routine when you have heart failure. Why? The medications have been shown to save lives, prolong life and improve the heart's function.
It is estimated that 50 - 75% of people do not take their medications as prescribed by their provider. Approximately 60% of heart failure patients will be readmitted to the hospital because they do not take the medications as prescribed.
