This course is designed for medicines management teams, GPs, practice nurses, practice pharmacists and non-medical prescribers.
This course is based on NICE guideline 106 and covers the diagnosis and pharmacological management of chronic heart failure. It also covers lifestyle factors, although management of acute heart failure, interventional procedures and palliative care are beyond the scope of the course.
The course should take around 2.5 hours in total to complete, but please note that it is designed to be completed in stages and not finished in one sitting.
It includes six modules plus two optional modules focusing on key topics, in addition to two case studies that will help apply learning to practice.
Quizzes at the end of each module will test understanding and recap on key learning points, and a pass mark of 70% is required in the final assessment to complete the course and receive a certificate.
