Abstract:
Session presented on: Monday, July 22, 2013: Purpose: The purpose of this study focused on the predictive effects of proximity to health care, general health perception, and knowledge of HF on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in the veteran population. Methods: A correlational, cross-sectional survey design using four survey instruments (demographic data, SF-12, Dutch Heart Failure Knowledge Scale, Ferrans and Powers Quality of Life Index-Cardiac Version-IV). Data obtained was used to test the hypothesis. Results: The findings showed the HRQOL model was unidirectional and that the only predictive variable on HRQOL was proximity to health care. Conclusion: Limitations inherent in a small sample size and a translated instrument may have affected the findings. Implications include a qualitative study to understand the veterans' idea of their quality of life and a larger quantitative study.
