What we believe

Support

We believe that peer support is essential for coping through the hard times and to live your best life during the good times. At hearts4heart, we provide over the phone support and connect patients through our monthly Heart Buddy meetings and through our social media community. At our meetings we invite guest speakers that include cardiologists, cardiac nurses, cardiac technicians, dieticians and more.

Education

We believe that it is essential for heart patients and the public receive evidence-based education that supports early diagnoses, treatment to therapies and self-management. Through our awareness campaigns we hope people recognise symptoms early to reduce preventable strokes and deaths.

Advocacy

We believe that patients should have timely access to treatment no matter where you are, when you need it. Our role is to advocate in health care for patients, survivors and caregivers so that people are diagnosed early and have timely access to therapies.

Join our community

Our Heart Buddy Program offers patients and their families a place where they can find connection with others who share similar experiences. Through this program, we foster meaningful catchups, arrange engaging guest speakers, guided meditations and more. Stay up to date with the latest news and events by joining our social media community.

Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Week
18 – 24 September, 2023

Atrial Fibrillation, also known as an irregular heartbeat, is common and on the rise around the world. In Australia, there are around 500,000 Australians living with atrial fibrillation, however, up to 30% of those living with the condition are undiagnosed.

 

If untreated, AF can lead to serious complications like stroke, heart failure and dementia.

 

Unfortunately, dangerously low levels of awareness about heart failure are leaving Australians vulnerable to this debilitating condition.

 

Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Week creates an opportunity to encourage crucial conversations about the importance of recognising the symptoms associated with the disease and speaking to a healthcare professional for a heart check to ensure the best health outcomes for Australians.
