Publication date: Available online 11 October 2019Source: Revista Española de Cardiología (English Edition)Author(s): Samuel D. Slavin, Haider J.

Despite guideline recommendations, cardiologists refer to palliative care at rates much lower than other specialties and very late in the course of the disease, often in the final 3 days of life. One reason for delayed referral is that prognostication is challenging in patients with HF, making it unclear when and how the limited resources of specialist palliat...
