Determining perspectives of patients and healthcare providers on managing patients with heart failure during a pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown has revealed a number of changes in practice and challenges in providing care for patients with heart failure and other long-term conditions during a time when resources are shifted to fighting the infection.  Some changes were positive, some less so.

We’d like to hear from patients and healthcare providers in primary care and specialist or secondary services.

We want healthcare providers and patients to help us understand:

  • What has worked well?

  • What could be improved?

  • What should stay part of practice?

We would like to get your thoughts and ideas about changes in practice in a brief eDelphi survey (10 – 20 minutes to complete) that asks you to rate the importance of various innovations, changes and strategies.

In a second round you will receive your rankings compared to the larger group, and will be asked to consider your rankings (again 10 – 20 minutes).

About this method

This two-step process of rating importance follows an established research method called eDelphi and and is often used in situations when limited evidence exists.

In this way we hope to find consensus on the best ways forward for patients and providers, and useful strategies that can improve care for patients with heart failure in challenging times.
