The purpose of this study is to determine predictors of functional status in frail community-dwelling heart failure (HF) patients admitted to a home-based disease management program. This study is part of a larger study which seeks to examine the impact of four different home management interventions on patient and service outcomes in heart failure. The conceptual model guiding the study is that patient and service outcomes are influenced by intervention strategies and by individual demographic and patient characteristics. The sample consists of 100 subjects referred to HF disease management following a hospitalization. Each subject is assessed for demographic variables and patient characteristics (severity of HF, self-efficacy, barriers, comorbidities and mood). Tools used to measure the concepts include 6-minute walk test and HFFSI (functional status) and NYHA classification (severity), BEES-HF (self-efficacy), a 16-item scale designed to measure barriers, and GDS-SF (mood). Data will be analyzed using regression techniques. Implications include: 1) a better understanding of where to direct nursing interventions for greatest impact on functional status and 2) informing nursing regarding the development of cost-effective, beneficial strategies for home disease management.
