dc.description.abstract Purpose: Heart Failure (HF) is a chronic disease associated with substantial morbidity, mortality and healthcare expenditure. According to a study done by Their et al. (2008), the two main reasons that lead to less than optimal outcome, increased cost and higher utilization in patient with chronic diseases like HF are patient medication non-adherence and provider variation in delivery of guideline based care. The question then arises; will the patient have a better prognosis if the providers adhere to standard guidelines in managing HF? The purpose of this CAT is to review the relationship between adherence to outpatient Heart Failure pharmacological guidelines and clinical outcome.
