  • The ideal pathway of care for heart failure patients is a key feature of this consensus document. It offers a pathway of care that is the foundation from which to assess barriers that are context-specific.
  • The roadblocks and potential solutions to patient care are offered based on key stages of the patient care pathway. They have been accumulated from previous WHF Roadmaps, built on the experience of the core writing group, and based on consensus and feedback from a wider survey process.
  • Evidence-based solutions to specific roadblocks are offered in tables within the document. The barriers to care are offered from the highest rated barriers from the WHF Survey on the Heart Failure Roadmap and from 146 experts.
