Help your patients make a healthy start in 2017 - participate in the Heart Failure Integrated Care Project!

SESLHD and CESPHN are seeking expressions of interest from GPs with practice nurses in the St George and Sutherland areas for a Heart Failure project seeking to strengthen integrated care between GPs and hospital based heart services for patients with this condition.

What will practices get?

  • Resources for patient self care (daily weigh, fluid restriction, low salt, action plan for worsening symptoms etc)
  • Resources for the practice nurse (patient assessment form, summarised manual - Understanding Heart Failure)
  • Clinical decision making pathway resource for GPs
  • Telephone support from St George Hospital Heart Service nurse practitioner and cardiologist
  • Site visits and patient review by St George Hospital Heart Service nurse practitioner

There is an evaluation component consisting of short pre and post surveys for GPs and practice nurses and one survey for several patients.

How long will it last?

To March 2017
