NICE Chronic Heart Failure in Adults Quality Standard
“This quality standard covers assessing, diagnosing and managing chronic heart failure in adults (aged 18 and over). It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement. Statements cover adults with chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction and adults with chronic heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, unless otherwise stated.
In January 2023, this quality standard was updated and replaced the previous version published in 2011. The topic was identified for update following the annual review of quality standards. The review identified:
- potential changes in the priority areas for improvement
- that there was potential for quality statements to be combined.”
