Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG)

  • Clinical Practice Guidelines Management of Heart Failure 2023 (5th Edition)

    Heart failure is a condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In recent years, there have been advancements in both treatment and diagnostics, to enable all stakeholders in healthcare to improve the management of this condition.

    Over 23 years have passed since the publication of the first Clinical Practice Guidelines in Malaysia for Heart failure. Subsequent editions in 2007, 2014, and 2019 reflected the growing body of evidence generated both internationally and locally. This latest edition incorporates the latest science in this field.

    Nearly 30 years since the publication of the first Malaysian Consensus on management of hyperlipidaemia, I am proud to announce the publication of the 6th Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) on the management of dyslipidemia. Since the 5th CPG, published in 2017, there has been much development in both diagnosis and treatments of dyslipidemia. This CPG is timely, as Malaysia has seen a rise in the prevalence of hypercholesterolemia in adults - a rise of 31.5% in 2011 to 38.1% in 2019.

NSTE-ACS including the non-ST elevation myocardial infarction and unstable angina is the dominant clinical manifestation of ACS in Malaysia hence ensuring the standardised and current clinical management for our clinicians is paramount for the safety of our patients.
