About the Project
Before the diagnosis of new heart failure (HF), many patients will be on cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular drugs that are important both in the prevention as well as in the treatment of subsequent HF. There are a range of factors which may influence how patients present with a new diagnosis and the critical questions are whether medications influence the likely HF diagnosis and what the potential opportunities for optimising subsequent HF management are. The project will utilise the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) which is a national epidemiological database that links primary care records to other data such as hospital and death data. The project is aligned with informatics developments.
