The importance of a team approach has long been supported and advocated by the ACC, AHA, and ESC guideline writing groups. However, the adoption of a true heart team inclusive of all providers including advanced practice providers (APPs), has eluded many practices and institutions until recently as it is a fairly new concept in cardiology. One thing that I appreciate about the ACC is its longstanding emphasis on advocating for physicians, patients, and for all cardiovascular team members including nurses, APPs, and cardiovascular technologists.
