Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul A Rogers, MD, PhD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This guide describes the team approach to the care of heart failure patients. The editors are well published in the field, including numerous primary articles on improving outcomes for patients with heart failure.
Purpose: It is designed to introduce physicians to a multidisciplinary method of caring for heart failure patients.
Audience: This book has a broad audience — students, advanced practice clinicians, physicians in training, practicing clinicians, social workers, nurses, and dietitians caring for these patients.
Features: After a brief overview of heart failure concepts, the book expands into specific detail about the role of each team member and his/her importance in delivering effective integrated care to the heart failure patient. The strength of this book is in the clear way each member's role is described and his/her individual importance to the patient is detailed, with the evidence behind the role in effecting better care and outcomes provided in references at the end of each chapter. Each team member's scope of practice is clearly delineated, including nurses, physicians, pharmacists, and social workers. The book also discusses real-world integrated multidisciplinary clinical models, including Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans, Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, and Massachusetts General Hospital, to emphasize how individual group practices have successfully instituted this method of patient care. Lastly, two case studies provide examples that highlight the effectiveness of this approach when applied to individual patients.
Assessment: This well-written and well-organized book emphasizes the importance of establishing a multidisciplinary, team-based approach to caring for heart failure patients using supporting evidence from peer-reviewed publications. This book is unique in emphasizing how a team-based approach can improve outcomes for these complex patients, making it an ideal guidebook for any caregivers wanting to provide more effective long-term care for their patients with heart failure.
