A heart failure team that treats heart failure patients often faces the challenge of managing multiple conditions requiring multiple medications and life style changes in an older patient group. A multidisciplinary team approach can optimally diagnose, carefully review and prescribe treatment, and educate and counsel patients and their families about medication use and life style changes. In this paper the possible role of the pharmacist, dietician, physical therapist, psychologist, primary care provider and social worker in heart failure management is discussed.
