Background:Most heart failure patients have multiple comorbidities. Objective:This study aims to test the moderating effect of comorbidity on the relationship between self-efficacy and self-care in adults with heart failure. Methods:Secondary analysis of four mixed methods studies (n = 114) was done. Self-care and self-efficacy were measured using the Self-Care of Heart Failure Index. Comorbidity was measured with the Charlson Comorbidity Index. Parametric statistics were used to examine the…

This study supports the premise that heart failure rehospitalizations are related to inadequate self-care and evaluates perceived social support and self-Care characteristics of patients hospitalized with an exacerbation of heart failure.

Male gender and poor cognition were consistently associated with poor self-care maintenance, management and confidence in Italian heart failure patients, and can help to target patients’ education.

Perceived Control Predicts Symptom Status in Patients With Heart Failure.

Lower levels of perceived control were independently associated with worse symptom status in patients with HF, and Intervention strategies targeting perceived control should be tested to determine whether they could improve symptom status.

Self-management in Heart Failure: The Importance of Self-regulation but not Complexity of Condition

Self-regulation in HF should be explored to provide a clearer understanding of the processes used to change health behavior, and SM may be particularly useful in HF with preserved ejection fraction, where there is no proven pharmacological treatment.

Predictors of Adherence to Self-Care in Rural Patients With Heart Failure.

Interventions designed to promote adherence behaviors should include an assessment of gender, anxiety, depression, and perceived control for optimal outcomes.

Self-care Activation, Social Support, and Self-care Behaviors among Women Living with Heart Failure

Self-care activation, poor self-perceived health, greater ADL limitations, and more years living with HF were statistically significantly associated with having a higher BMI, and education and income levels were significant predictors of daily fruit/vegetable servings.

Self care in patients with chronic heart failure

Early evidence suggests that adequate self care is associated with an improvement in health status, a decrease in the number and duration of hospitalizations, and a decline in levels of biomarkers of stress and inflammation, and in intrathoracic impedance.

Factors Associated With the Development of Expertise in Heart Failure Self-Care

Engaged supporters can help persons with chronic HF to overcome seemingly insurmountable barriers to self-care and help them develop sufficient expertise to avoid repeated hospitalization.

A Situation-Specific Theory of Heart Failure Self-care

A situation-specific theory of heart failure self-care is described in which self- care is defined as a naturalistic decision-making process involving the choice of behaviors that maintain physiologic stability and the response to symptoms when they occur (management).
