Quality of Life and Associated Factors in Older Adults With Heart Failure
Conclusions/Implications for Practice HF is a chronic and debilitating disease that often reduces QoL in older adults significantly. Interventions designed to increase QoL by improving the NYHA functional class and alleviating HFSD are valid treatment options only in cases with depressive symptoms. Nurses treating older adults with HF should consider factors such as NYHA functional class and HFSD to reduce HFSD and readmission rates and to enhance the QoL of these patients. In addition, after both hospital admission and discharge, older adult patients should be assessed regularly to monitor for and quickly address the ...
