Start the activity on Guidelines Learning

This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on chronic heart failure in primary care—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.

The questions, written by Dr Alan Begg, relate to his expert article, SIGN updates advice on drug therapy in chronic heart failure, which explores evidence-based guidance from SIGN on diagnosis, lifestyle modification, and interventions in chronic heart failure.

On completion of this activity, you should be able to:

  • discuss diagnostic approaches to chronic heart failure
  • recall newer drug options for chronic heart failure treatment
  • explain why patients with heart failure should be screened for depression.
