This project assessed patient satisfaction with a nurse practitioner–led multidisciplinary heart failure clinic for optimization of guideline directed medical therapy for patients with heart failure. A cohort design (N = 51) assessed patient satisfaction, 6-Minute Walk Test, quality of life (EQ-VAS) and symptoms (PROMIS-29). Satisfaction scores ranged from 7 to 10 with a mean score of 9.38 ± 0.92. No statistically significant correlations were found between patient satisfaction and the 6-Minute Walk Test, EQ-VAS, and PROMIS-29. Patients were highly satisfied with the care provided in the nurse practitioner–led clinic.
