CHF is the most frequent cause of hospitalization for people over the age of 65, with annual costs estimated as high as $38 billion. Even though intensive patient/family education and in-home care can effectively reduce readmissions and improve patients' quality of life, it is costly and achievable only with multiple experts and frequent nurse home visits. Insurers or Medicare rarely pay for home visits, unless skilled nursing care is needed. A quasi-experimental design was used in this pilot study to assess CHF knowledge gained and resource utilization after videotape education. The theoretical basis for the study intervention was the Triandis Behavior Change Model. Ten patients, newly discharged from CHF hospitalizations, received the videotape education over a three-week period. Prior to the videotape education, all subjects had incorrect answers. Post data indicated the incorrect answers included: the reasons for CHF hospital readmissions, weight checklist posted near bathroom scale, identifying sodium on food labels, and weekly meal planning. Four patients reported improvement in perceived health and social activities compared to baseline. None of the patients were re-hospitalized for 2 months and one reported a 3-pound weight gain to their physician based on "what I learned in the video".
