Nurses and allied professionals at heart of cardiovascular prevention and management programs
Date:3/6/2009

ure patients having a life expectancy that is worse than that of the common malignancies apart from lung cancer, the disease trajectory associated with Heart Failure is unpredictable. Many patients confront fear of death on a number of occasions. There is an increasing demand for palliative care intervention especially for their physical, psychological and spiritual issues." The new guidelines, says O'Connor, will bring together the expertise of the cardiovascular nurse with that of the palliative care nurse, whose skills are focused on communication, symptom relief and quality of life. Ireland will be one of only a few countries to have guidelines developed for palliative care in heart failure.

2. With more and more patients fitted with implantable cardioverter defibrillators and other assist devices, the nurse is taking on a greater role in helping patients adapt to technology. "It's not just about understanding the technology," says Ms O'Connor. For the patient there are numerous psychosocial issues and the cardiovascular nurse is well placed to deal with a whole range of patient concerns."

3. Primary and secondary prevention remain the holy grail of cardiovascular disease, and in both, whether after a heart attack or in making heart-healthy lifestyle choices, the ultimate responsibility devolves to self-care. "These choices are better made when they are informed choices," says Professor Deaton, "and the cardiovascular nurse and allied professional are invariably in a position to enhance self-care and provide up-to-date information on exercise, diet, smoking and medication. We still need to think prevention as well as treatment." Informed guidance in self-care is an important theme of CCNAP 2009, which will present community models for the management of angina, heart failure and hypertension.

This announcement will be followed by an advance press release in April. In the meantime, we encourage you to mark the CCNAP dates in your diary,
