Heart Failure Disease Management: From Planning to Implementation
First Edition

The information in this book is based on the Heart Failure Disease Management workshop that has been presented by the American Association of Heart Failure Nurses. The material is written by leading nurse experts in heart failure care, sharing knowledge and experiences. This is not a book about managing heart failure, but rather, it is a book about developing and implementing systems to better organize the care of heart failure patients. It describes the processes involved: from creating a budget, to managing end-of -life complications, and everything in-between. Specific topics include: 

• Creating a business model 
• Developing inpatient and outpatient programs 
• Setting up systems for care 
• HF Certification and accreditation 
• Strategies to prevent readmissions 
• Promoting adherence in patients 
• Organizing advanced therapies 
• End-of-life care 
• Measuring outcomes 

Several chapters include a Toolkit section, which includes resources and documents that the authors have contributed for the reader to use in building a heart failure program. This book offers guidance and a foundation to create a program to improve the process of caring for heart failure patients.
