Investigators: Dr Sungwon Chang (CI) The aim of this program of research is to describe patterns and to identify risk characteristics associated with hospital admission and mortality in older women with CHF. By developing risk prediction models for older women with CHF, the research program helps understand the factors antecedent to hospitalisation and mortality, essential to developing targeted and tailored strategies to improve health service delivery. In addition, this project will describe patterns and trends in evidence-based CHF therapy utilisation amongst women over time.
