Parrella A, Mundy L, Hiller JE, Merlin T
Record ID 32006001394
Authors' results and conclusions: Nurse-led programmes are now in widespread clinical practice in Australia and New Zealand, and programmes such as heart failure management are likely to diffuse rapidly. Programmes such as this are safe, cost-effective tools in the treatment and monitoring of high-risk patients.
Authors' recomendations: Given the availability of numerous high quality studies of congestive heart failure (CHF) disease management programmes it is recommended that this summary be widely distributed within the jurisdictions and clinical practices. There is no need for further research.
