This video series is dedicated to the adoption of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and initiation of guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) in daily practice. 


In this third and final discussion of the series, Dr Mikhail Kosiborod (Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute, US) and Dr Shelley Zieroth (St Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, CA) discuss the adoption of patient reported outcomes in clinical management of patients with HF. 


Split into three short videos, Dr Kosiborod and Dr Zieroth start by discussing quality of life (QoL) measures and close by looking at the practical implementation of tools, such as the Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ), in clinical practice and HF management.
