Heart failure (HF) is a complicated, multifaceted, and debilitating disease process that affects more than 5 million Americans. The major goals in the treatment of individuals with HF are the amelioration of symptoms and improvement of quality of life (QOL). Therefore, one aim of this blind, experimental study is to evaluate the effectiveness of nursing interventions in enhancing QOL among individuals with HF receiving home care. Guided by King's theory of goal attainment and Orem's theory of self-care, two specific nursing interventions were developed from the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research HF clinical practice guidelines. With a goal of recruiting 100 individuals with HF, 80 participants have been enrolled in the study to date and have been randomly assigned one of three intervention groups. Group 1 participants receive a placebo intervention that consists of health promotion information, excluding topics covered in the specific nursing approaches. Group 2 participants receive a supportive-educative approach developed to support and teach the client about self-management for the health-deviation of HF. Group 3 participants receive an intervention based on mutual goal setting, in which nurses and clients collaboratively define a set of client goals, prioritize the goals in order of importance by the client, agree on the goals to be obtained, and establish timelines, indicators, and outcomes collaboratively. Perceived QOL is assessed prior to randomization, and again at 3 and 6 months using the Quality of Life Index: Cardiac Version. Data analysis, which will be completed by December 2001, will include a repeated measures ANOVA with post hoc procedures.
