Abstract

Advanced heart failure requires specialized treatment to improve symptoms, increase survival, and reverse or slow disease progression. The Advanced Heart Failure Shared Clinical Experiences Network, or AHF SCENE, was founded in 1995 to provide small groups of health care professionals with better advanced heart failure management strategies by sharing clinical experiences from centers treating large numbers of patients. The original AHF SCENE program has since been modified to provide health care professionals with more information on current strategies for advanced heart failure management and to better serve the educational needs of professionals who care for these patients. AHF SCENE II promotes new methods, programs, procedures, and pharmacologic interventions and also describes strategies for tracking and improving clinical and economic outcomes in the management of advanced heart failure. AHF SCENE II supports the understanding that rapid, aggressive medical management is essential and is more effective in the context of a well designed program that spans the continuum of care.
