The Heart Failure – Diagnosis and Management guideline is available for External Review until January 12, 2023.

The guideline provides recommendations for the diagnosis and management of people aged ≥ 19 years with suspected or confirmed heart failure in the primary care setting. It focuses primarily on chronic ambulatory heart failure. The revised guideline provides new recommendations on medication titration. Given that heart failure is associated with reduced life expectancy, advanced care planning and palliative care are also addressed in his revised version of the guideline.

Please visit the BC Guidelines External Review page to download the draft guideline and submit your feedback via our online questionnaire.

The question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
