The National Prescribing Curriculum (NPC) is a series of interactive case-based modules that encourage confident and rational prescribing. The modules follow a stepwise approach as outlined in the WHO's Guide to Good Prescribing.
In this module you will provide care for Roberta, a patient with heart failure.
- Identify therapeutic goals in the management of chronic heart failure.
- Prescribe the standard regimen of medicines used in the management of chronic heart failure in a patient with stable symptoms.
- Determine medicines that can precipitate an exacerbation of heart failure and that should be avoided.
- Identify appropriate monitoring parameters for chronic heart failure.
