Heart Failure Society of America And The American Association of Heart Failure Nurses Release Joint Statement
Date:9/10/2012

SEATTLE, Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The 16th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) opened today at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. The program will feature presentations and seminars on the latest issues and treatments from leading heart failure experts.

At this year's conference, HFSA and the American Association of Heart Failure Nurses (AAHFN) will release a joint statement regarding the role of nursing in the care of persons with heart failure.

"HFSA and AAHFN share a common mission to improve outcomes of patients with heart failure," said Dr. Barry Massie, M.D., president of HFSA. "Heart failure is the fastest growing cardiovascular disease in the United States, and effective treatment of this disease requires a team of experts from many disciplines practicing to their full abilities."

The statement strongly advocates for the removal of scope-of-practice barriers for nurses, which would allow nurses to practice to the full extent of their educational training. Also, HFSA and AAHFN endorse recent recommendations to make nurses full partners in the redesign of healthcare.  Because of their role in the treatment of patients, nurses have invaluable insight into the delivery of healthcare. 

"Nurses are in a key position to prevent complications, recognize symptoms and tailor treatment strategies for heart failure patients," said Linda Baas, President of AAHFN.  "Unfortunately, in many parts of the United States, nurses are not allowed to practice at the full level of their training. This joint statement with HFSA emphasizes our common position, and hopefully begins to change the role of nurses in heart failure care and treatment."
