Transcript of Models of Care in Heart Failure

Heart Failure Models of Care Model 2: People with stable symptomatic CHF Model 1: People with elevated Risk of CHF or with Asymptomatic early disease Challenges for Nurses in Caring for these patients Model 4: People with end-stage CHF Model 3: People with acute exacerbation of CHF Recent Innovations in models of care or treatment Presented By:

Saba, Theodor THANK YOU FOR LISTENING! INTRODUCTION Model 1: Elevated Risk of CHF or with Asymptomatic early disease Model 2: People with stable symptomatic CHF Model 3: People with acute exacerbation of CHF Model 4: People with end-stage CHF Objectives:
- Prevent development of CHF in people at elevated risk
- Prevent deterioration of CHF in people with asymptomatic early disease
- Preserve the cardiac function of people with asymptomatic early disease Key Elements of the Model:
- Prevention is based on early detection and intervention
- Patient's willingness to take control of health
- Patient Empowerment Service Delivery Settings
Metropolitan and Urban vs Rural and Remote Service Providers:
- General Practitioner
- Community Nurse
- Aboriginal Health Worker
- Health Staff involved in primary prevention Objectives:
- Ensure that CHF patients receive appropriate pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment , including appropriate referral to a specialist cardiology and allied health services and to community-based health services.

- Ensure that CHF patients receive information and education that enables them and or their carers to monitor and manage their disease.

- Accurately and promptly diagnose CHF, determine its cause, its precipitating and exacerbating factors and assess its severity. Key Elements:
- Prompt and comprehensive communication between hospital staff and community-based health services if the patient is admitted to the hospital.

- Access to specialist medical expertise for pharmacological management. SERVICE DELIVERY SETTINGS
- Services in metropolitan and urban settings
- Services in rural settings SERVICE PROVIDERS
- General practitioners
- Community and hospital based nurses.
- Hospital pharmacist.
- Dieticians
- Psychologists SERVICES In hospital setting Out of hospital setting In hospital setting:
- When you find a patient with acute exacerbation of CHF
- Accurate and prompt detection
- Appropriately responding Accurate and Prompt Detection
- Check patient's status (head to toe)
- Give Oxygen (2-4L)
- Perform an ECG and check vital signs
- Ask questions! (e.g. location of pain, severity, feeling) Out of hospital setting:
- Accessing to the services within a 45 minutes
- Seeing initially by a doctor
- Presenting to hospital ED involving Ambulance
- Transferring to a metropolitan hospital including Ambulance or Aero-medical team Palliative care for patients with end stage failure
- Its objective is to maximize the quality of life.
- provide psychosocial support to the patient, the family and other carers. Key Points:
- Effective Symptom control:
- Dyspnoea, Uraemia,Lower limb oedema, Cardiac cacchexia,
- Other symptoms like pain, nausea, constipation and depression of mood
- Providing education
- Access to appropriate palliative care services.
- Provide Referral to community support services
- Recognize the quality of Life Advance care directive
- Negotiation of end-of-life issues with the patient and their carer.
- Its aim is to optimise planning to avoid futile treatments, investigation and distress for patients and their families at the end of life.
- Assessment
- Communication
- Routine inclusion of care planning and agreed treatment goals - Unavailability or shortage of medical specialist and allied health services.

- Specialist referral particularly for more complicated cases.

- Telephone based education programs

- Increasing role for practised registered nurses working with specialist/GP in
providing CHF education.

- Lack of nurse’s knowledge about assessing and giving proper education. Coordination in terms of the management programs compared to usual care for CHF to;
- Improve quality of life
- Adherence of fluid and dietary restrictions
- Medication regimens
- Reduce the likelihood of readmission
- Registered nurse
- Multidisciplinary coordination
- Ongoing participation of patient, family, GP and other health professionals - Effective ongoing patient education

- Establishing and fostering communication between hospitals and community based health care providers, patients and carers

- Continuity of Care Areas in which there have been significant new developments include:
- Use of B-type natriuretic peptide(BNP) or N-Terminal porBNP plasma level measurement in guiding treatment of CHF
- New pharmacological approaches to the treatment of systolic heart failure
- Drugs to avoid or use with caution in CHF
- Treatment of cardiac arrhythmias in patients with CHF
- Multidisciplinary care and post-discharge management programs Between-visit home telemonitoring for high risk patients

> In addition to other programs, the telemonitoring component in the early 1999 after nurses realized that telephone-based weight checks were time consuming.

Video telehealth

> Information provided in September 2012 indicates that this program now also provides video telehealth for patients in rural communities. References:

- Preparing initial resuscitation
- Providing timely management
- Providing prompt emergency treatment aimed at optimising cardiac function
- Providing relief from symptoms
- Preventing damage to other organs Services in rural settings
– Medical practitioners in rural towns should have the capacity to:
- make a diagnosis of acute CHF
- carry out resuscitation if necessary
- take initial steps to stabilise the patient’s condition
- assess and treat immediate underlying causes of an acute episode
- make arrangements for the patient with acute CHF to be transported to a centre for definitive management.
