Abstract

Despite recent and exponential improvements in diagnostic- therapeutic pathways, an existing “GAP†has been revealed between the “real world care†and the “optimal care†of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). We present the T.O.S.CA. Project (Trattamento Ormonale dello Scompenso CArdiaco), an Italian multicenter initiative involving different health care professionals and services aiming to explore the CHF “metabolic pathophysiological model†and to improve the quality of care of HF patients through research and continuing medical education.
