Title:
Patient-Centered Care and Self-Care Education in Ventricular Assist Device Patients
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Significance: Ventricular assist devices (VADs) are increasingly being used as treatment for patients with end-stage heart failure or as a means to sustain patient survival until cardiac transplantation. These patients must manage a complex self-care regimen after surgery. Current self-care education processes used among implant hospital centers in the United States have not been described. VAD patient reports of patient-centered care and satisfaction with care have not been described. Understanding processes of self-care education and patient satisfaction with patient-centered care after ventricular assist device implantation is necessary to developing or improving methods used for self-care education delivery in VAD hospitals. Purpose: To describe care structure and VAD self-care education processes used in hospitals, VAD patient reports of patient-centered care and what patient-centered care expectations are important to VAD patients. Design:   Prospective cross-sectional descriptive design Methods:   A survey of all VAD implant hospital centers in the United States will be obtained in order to describe self-care education practices in hospitals after VAD implantation. A telephone interview of VAD patients within one VAD implant medical center will be used to describe patient reports of patient-centered care and reports of importance of patient-centered care expectations relative to VAD self-care education. Results: This dissertation study is currently in progress. Implications: The knowledge gained with this dissertation study will be used to identify components of healthcare structure and care processes that are important in preparing VAD patients for successful self-care after hospital discharge. Through describing VAD patient satisfaction with care processes and by identifying which aspects of patient-centered care that VAD patients perceive as most important to their outpatient success, nursing may contribute a greater role in development of supportive interventions aimed at mastery of required self-care behaviors.
