Heart Helper Pilot

Our goal

To reduce avoidable acute care admissions related to heart failure

Heart failure is a complex chronic condition. One in four patients with heart failure are readmitted to hospital within 30 days of being discharged.

In this Commonwealth funded pilot project, we’re partnering with Victorian health services to co-design and test a service delivery model to help people with heart failure after a hospital admission. The project will focus on increasing patient self-management and better educating carers.

We will also trial the use of a combined workforce – this could include enrolled nurses, personal care workers, allied health assistants or non-specialists working closely with experienced clinicians.
