February is heart month and VA researchers are working hard on identifying ways to improve care for Veterans with heart disease. Investigators with VA’s Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI) are focusing exclusively on two particular types of heart disease: congestive heart failure and ischemic heart disease. To learn more about their research, you can visit the QUERI website at http://www.queri.research.va.gov/. You can also learn more about how researchers in VA’s Health Services Research & Development Service are focusing on ways to improve the quality, access, and delivery of care for Veterans with heart disease by visiting their special monthly feature page at: http://www.hsrd.research.va.gov/news/feature/heart_disease.cfm
