Heart Failure

HF: Specific Methods (2017)

Heart Failure (2017) Evidence-Based Nutrition Practice Guideline

Search Criteria and Results for Specific Topics

Each evidence analysis topic has a link to supporting evidence, including the Search Plan and Results. The Search Plan and Results includes when the search plan was performed, inclusion and exclusion criteria, search terms, databases that were searched and the excluded articles.

Below is a list of the recommendations and the related evidence analysis questions, with the link to each search plan (click on the search plan title to expand the section and view the results). Some recommendations are supported by multiple conclusion statements and therefore have multiple search plans listed.

Consensus-rated recommendations were not developed using the Academy's evidence analysis process, but based on consensus documents. Therefore, these recommendations do not have links to Search Plans.
