The purpose

Heart failure (HF) imposes a burden for patients and health economics. Although guidelines exist, they are not implemented as such in the Belgian health care system. General practitioners (GPs) are confronted with the broadest range of HF management. Therefore, a multifaceted intervention will be implemented in Belgian general practice to support GPs in the implementation of evidence-based HF guidelines. This multifaceted intervention will consist of audit and feedback as a method to detect unrecognized HF patients and increase awareness for proactive HF management. Additionally, a NT-proBNP point-of-care test will be offered to every practice to improve detection and adequate diagnosis of HF patients. Furthermore, a specialist HF nurse will assist GPs in education of patients, optimization of treatment and transition of care. The investigators' aim is evaluating the feasibility of the implementation of this multifaceted intervention in general practice and the evolution in predefined quality indicators.
