HCPA have recently teamed up with the heart failure team at Central London Community Healthcare Trust to provide our valued members with some education around heart failure.

Did you know?

  • There are an estimated 920,000 people living with heart failure in the UK
  • Heart failure results in 100,000 hospital admissions in the UK each year
  • 4 in 10 people with heart failure have their early symptoms missed leading to a delay in diagnosis

These statistics show that heart failure is a hugely important topic for care providers to be aware about. Heart failure is a misunderstood and misdiagnosed condition, as malignant as some of the most common cancers, and should be treated with the same urgency.

Therefore, HCPA are running a 1-hour webinar available to all members on recognising heart failure and what care professionals can do to improve outcomes for the individuals in their care.

The session is open to all care professionals at all levels. The first half an hour will be aimed at all staff, with the second half aimed at care managers and registered nurses.

Thank you for reading this content. I am going to leave you with the following message, so that we can achieve better recognition and BEAT heart failure together:

B – Breathless
E – Exhaustion
A – Ankle swelling
T – Time for a simple blood test
