Background: Heart failure is nearing epidemic proportions in America. Dissemination of evidence-based patient care guidelines to health care providers does not necessarily translate into improved practices. Educating patients to be active participants in their care prior to their physician visits has been shown to improve the provision of health care. Purpose: The main purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to assess the efficacy of an active patient involvement in care educational intervention in improving physician's-in-training adherence with national guidelines. Framework: Active patient involvement in care (Kaplan, Greenfield, & Ware). Sample: Patients with heart failure, cared for by internal medicine residents at an indigent care clinic, will be randomized to the intervention or control group. Methods: The intervention consists of web-based education modules that are tailored to the age, gender, and race of the patients. The modules address widely accepted medications disseminated through national guidelines and emphasize active patient skills. The main outcome variable is residents' therapeutic decision-making. The proposed intervention is also designed to improve patients' control, participation in the decision-making process, and beliefs with a related improvement in quality of life and satisfaction. Statistical analysis: Analysis will be completed using generalized estimating equation modeling.
