BEAT methodology, how to improve heart failure prevention
Posted on 12.10.2022
Before the pandemic, we needed to get a grip on heart failure. However, the pandemic has complicated the heart failure revival due to the burden of COVID-19 and the by-product of patients with long-term conditions, particularly cardiovascular. Patients were not seeing their doctors or nurses regularly throughout the pandemic, creating a backlog of people waiting to be seen, like we have never seen before. There is a backlog of people who have missed their regular appointment, check-up, investigations, and treatments and those who are either symptomatic without a diagnosis or have had a diagnosis and have not had regularity and frequency in their treatment post-diagnosis.
