Abstract

Interventions and strategies should align with the context and capacity of the health system. Identifying the most feasible and appropriate heart failure interventions in Jordan will improve heart failure management and clinical outcomes. Therefore, this study aimed to derive consensus from clinicians (using the Delphi method) regarding the most feasible and appropriate heart failure interventions in Jordan. A two-round Delphi study involving seven clinicians and policy makers were conducted. The Delphi results found consensus for the feasibility of the educational materials, follow up phone call, cardiac rehabilitation, group session, and training courses for staff. The components that were not feasible were: multidisciplinary team, individual session, and telemonitoring devices. The present study demonstrates the importance of utilizing interventions tailored to patients’ characteristics and aligned with the capacity of healthcare system.
