The number of people with heart failure is increasing throughout British Columbia. To help meet this challenge, BC’s Heart Failure Network (BCHFN) generates and shares accurate, current, and relevant heart failure information for health care professionals and patients in BC.
We do this primarily through our central, online hub (www.bcheartfailure.ca), which contains BC and Canada specific heart failure information – including practice guidelines, expert advice and referral information. We’re also working to improve access to diagnostics and specialized heart failure care throughout the province. We’re called “BC’s network” because we work for the people of BC who are living with heart failure to improve their health and well-being regardless of geography or cultural background. We are supported by the Provincial Health Services Authority and all of BC’s regional health authorities.
