Abstract

Symptom occurrence, symptom characteristics (frequency, severity, interference with activities and enjoyment of life), and quality of life were examined in heart failure patients after release from the hospital and 2 months after enrollment in a home-based disease management program. The results provide information on the most common and distressing symptoms in a community-based heart failure population. This information may be useful in guiding assessments and designing specific nursing interventions to include in a home-based disease management program.
