The 10-minute consultation: heart failure

Advisory board: TBC


The incidence and prevalence of heart failure is increasing, which might result in part from the combined effects of an ageing population and increased life expectancy. The incidence is such that a GP has (on average) 30 patients with heart failure, with 10 new diagnoses each year. These fi gures are higher in deprived areas. The prognosis of heart failure is poor and, therefore, accurate (and early) diagnosis of the clinical signs and symptoms that can potentially cause heart failure are a key competency for GPs, with management an essential part of health promotion. The aims of management in primary care are to improve the patient's quality of life and life expectancy.

The 10-minute consultation: heart failure will provide a holistic approach to the assessment and management of heart failure, stressing the importance of ongoing patient review and recall to ensure delivery of high-quality, evidence-based treatment.
