- •Patients reported high satisfaction with the care provided in a nurse-practitioner-led multidisciplinary heart failure clinic for optimization of guideline-directed medical therapy for patients with heart failure with reduced ejection (HFrEF).
- •Patient satisfaction was not related to 6-minute walk test distance, quality of life, or symptoms.
- •Patient satisfaction with care delivery is an important and often overlooked indicator of quality of care.
