This RCT study aims to examine the effects of a self-regulation programme on the self-care behaviour and quality of life of patients with heart failure. The following hypothesis was tested: Heart failure patients who receive the self-regulation program will report significant improvements in self-care behaviours after four weeks of the self-regulation programme. In contrast, patients in the control group showed no significant differences.
Eight two patients with heart failure were randomly assigned into the intervention (n = 41) or control group (n = 41). The intervention group participated in a 4-week self-regulation programme, including 20 to 30 minutes of individual self-regulation education and 15 to 20 minutes of telephone follow-up twice per week for four weeks. The control group received only routine outpatient care. Self-care behaviour was measured by the Self-Care of Heart Failure Index at baseline, 4 weeks and 8 weeks after patients were enrolled. Quality of life was measure with the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure questionnaire

A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
