An increasing number of management programs for heart failure patients, aimed at optimising individual care, have been described and evaluated during the last decade.
The existence and content of heart failure management programs differs between and within countries, depending on the patient population, national health care systems and level of education of nurses.
Recently heart failure management programs in Sweden and the Netherlands were described and a variation in the content of these programs was found [1–3].In general, heart failure management programs differ in 3 ways: content (which components are involved); intensity (how often is the patient contacted) and the organisational model.
