Australian cardiology guidelines and decision aids are now available via the Smart Heart Guidelines app.
Developed by the Heart Foundation in conjunction with CSANZ, the app provides access to the latest guidelines and position statements from the professional groups as well as interactive algorithms and calculators to support guideline-based diagnosis and therapy
Currently the app includes guidelines for heart failure, atrial fibrillation and ACS.
“By using the Smart Heart Guidelines app to access our guidelines, you can be sure you are providing the best evidence-based care for every patient with heart failure, atrial fibrillation and acute coronary syndromes,” says Heart Foundation Clinical Evidence Manager, Cia Connell.
“It’s ideal for time-poor health professionals to use in their daily work because you can refer to the information you need quickly and easily on your mobile phone or tablet.
“We know gaps exist between guideline recommendations and current practice in hospital and community settings, so this is a tool to help close those practice gaps and, ultimately, improve patient outcomes.”
The Smart Heart Guidelines app can be downloaded for free via the Apple App Store and Google Play. Visit the Heart Foundation website or phone the Helpline on 13 11 12 to learn more.
