Patients

The interprofessional team assesses and recommends treatment for patients diagnosed with heart failure. The team is composed of the following health professionals:

  • Cardiologist
  • Registered nurse
  • Registered dietitian
  • Physiotherapist
  • Social worker

During your initial visit you will meet the registered nurse, physiotherapist and cardiologist.  The registered dietitian and social worker are available to you with a referral from the HF team.  Please note your first appointment may last up to three hours during which time some diagnostic tests will be performed, such as blood tests and electrocardiogram (ECG).  An echocardiogram (ECHO) may be performed as well, but you will be notified in advance if this applies to you.
