Even if improved, the prognosis of chronic heart failure is still malignant, survival rate being similar to that of cancer. Due to the relevant epidemiology of the disease in the elderly, the terminal care of heart failure has a significant impact. Improving end-of-life care (by improving quality of life, quality of cure and care at the end of life and quality of dying and death) is a major challenge for health providers involved in heart failure care.
