Research

Research abstracts must report completed heart failure studies

Clinical Innovations

Clinical abstracts should be a summary or documentary of creative or novel clinical advances in the care and/or management of patients with heart failure.

Research Collaborative Network

The research collaborative network (RCN) is a community of nurse-scientists, clinical scholars, clinicians, and other stakeholders with similar research and scholarship interests. The overarching aim of the collaborative network is to foster a culture of collaboration, and engage AAHFN members in the development and/or implementation of research and evidence-based practice projects that further advance heart failure nursing knowledge.

We currently have two active RCNs: mechanical circulatory support (MCS) and palliative care.
