The CCS Heart Failure program has adopted CCS’s innovative ‘closed-loop’ model for guideline development which accommodates end-user and stakeholder input and evaluation on an ongoing basis..
Heart Failure is an ideal initial topic for the closed loop model because of its high incidence and prevalence and associated direct and indirect health care costs and the fact that the balance of medical care delivered to this growing patient population is provided by community cardiologists, general practitioners and related health care professionals. The closed-loop model provides an ideal framework for designing a needs-based program suitable for a multidisciplinary audience.
