Background: To explain the direction of specific cognitive function training that could prevent potential self-care deficits, the cognitive domain that affects self-care behaviours in patients with heart failure (HF) should be identified. This study aimed to confirm the relationship between major potential variables affecting self-care maintenance behaviours of patients with HF. The study also aimed to determine which cognitive domain predicts self-care maintenance among patients with HF…

Predictors of Heart Failure Self-care in Patients Who Screened Positive for Mild Cognitive Impairment

Patients who screened positive for MCI, on average, had adequate HF knowledge yet inadequate self-care scores, and models show the influence of modifiable and nonmodifiable predictors for patients who screenedpositive forMCI across the domains of self- care.

Cognitive Function and Self-Care in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure

HF patients with memory loss have poorer self-care confidence and patients with symptomatic HF had the higher risk for substantially poor cognitive function in all areas of cognitive function.

Cognitive impairment and self-care in heart failure

Cognitive impairment is highly prevalent among older patients hospitalized for HF and memory impairment is associated with poorer adherence to self-care practices, which may help to identify patients at risk for poorSelf-care who may benefit from tailored disease management programs.

Trajectories of Self-Care Confidence and Maintenance in Adults with Heart Failure: A Latent Class Growth Analysis

Patients in a poor self-care trajectory (confidence or maintenance) are at high risk to stay there without improving over time and these results can be used to develop tailored and potentially more effective health care interventions.

Patterns of Self-care in Adults With Heart Failure and Their Associations With Sociodemographic and Clinical Characteristics, Quality of Life, and Hospitalizations: A Cluster Analysis

The 4 clusters identified in this study and their associated characteristics could be used to tailor interventions aimed at improving self-care behaviors in HF patients.

Factors Related to Self-Care in Heart Failure Patients According to the Middle-Range Theory of Self-Care of Chronic Illness: a Literature Update

Experiences and skills, motivation, habits, cultural beliefs and values, functional and cognitive abilities, confidence, and support and access to care are all important to consider when developing or improving interventions for patients with heart failure and their families.

Validity and reliability of the Korean version of self-care of heart failure index

Psychometric testing of the SCHFI demonstrates a sound model fit, with desirable reliability estimates given each scale dimensionality, using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient and alternative options.
