To support and improve the provision of Palliative and End of Life care for those with heart failure

The remit team have developed a clinical education programme which involves a cohesive multi-disciplinary approach and which integrates key supportive and palliative care components in the management of patients with advanced heart failure. The programme will empower multi-disciplinary professionals who are working across different care boundaries to develop a system of care appropriate to each health board which identifies high risk patients and addresses unmet local care needs.
Three boards per phase will be invited to participate in the clinical education programme: Health boards participating in phase 1 include: NHS Fife, NHS Grampian and NHS Western Isles.
In addition National “best practice” guidance will also be produced to support health board areas who wish to improve current clinical practice.
