The National Heart Foundation of Australia together with the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand has launched two new clinical guidelines.
These clinical guidelines assist health professionals to prevent, detect and manage atrial fibrillation and heart failure and are used by practising clinicians across all disciplines, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals. Each guideline includes evidence-based recommendations that cover diagnosis, prevention, and management.
The atrial fibrillation guidelines are the first Australian guidelines on this topic. The heart failure guidelines to replace the 2011 update of the National Heart Foundation of Australia/Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (NHFA/CSANZ) Guidelines for the prevention, detection and management of chronic heart failure in Australia.
