Within clinical practice, nurses and allied professionals play a pivotal role in many aspects of delivering effective care to cardiac patients. They are often key in care delivery, and responsible for providing the patient’s 24-7 care when they are in hospital and throughout a significant proportion of outpatient care. As such, in many European countries nurses and allied professionals have a professional responsibility to ensure that patient care is based on the best evidence meaning that they are key players in Guideline Implementation.
However, a consultation exercise undertaken by the Council on Cardiovascular Nursing & Allied Professionals (CCNAP), in conjunction with their National Societies’ Committee, has revealed that several barriers exist to nurses and allied professionals being active in this regard across Europe.
The concept of this CCNAP Be Guidelines Smart Toolkit was developed to ensure that all nurses and allied professionals across Europe are trained to use the latest ESC Guidelines.
