Patient passport: “My Heart Failure Passport”
“My Heart Failure Passport” is designed to help patients play an active part in the treatment of their heart failure by monitoring key measurements, recording the medication they are taking, and understanding the disease and the importance of making changes in their lifestyle.
Thanks to this passport, patients can regularly record their weight, blood pressure, heart rate, symptoms and quality of life. The health care professional will discuss with the patient her/his optimal heart failure care according to her/his condition. The daily recording of the measurements will be very useful for discussion with health care professionals for follow-up appointments.
My Heart Failure passport will accompany the patient on his/her pathway.
