Rompolski, Krista L. – HAPS Educator, 2018
Students of physiology are taught that the body's homeostatic mechanisms are in place to maintain the body's internal environment. This is most often associated with maintaining health. Congestive Heart Failure represents a disease in which the body's homeostatic mechanisms worsen the progression of the disease. Using the analogy of Santa Claus…

Martinez, Elea Ann – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Heart failure (HF) is a preventable and serious life threatening disease. Robust information is available on patient satisfaction when telehealth is used to manage chronic illness, but minimal information is available on Advance Practice Nurse (APN) satisfaction when APNs use this modality to deliver remote healthcare. The purpose of this project…

Baron, Karen Parsley – ProQuest LLC, 2012
Personal Health Records (PHRs) allow patients to access and in some cases manage their own health records. Their potential benefits include access to health information, enhanced asynchronous communication between patients and clinicians, and convenience of online appointment scheduling and prescription refills. Potential barriers to PHR use…

Beckie, Theresa M.; Campbell, Susan M.; Schneider, Yukari Takata; Macario, Everly – American Journal of Health Education, 2017
Background: Three million U.S. women live with heart failure (HF). Purpose: This study investigated relationships among self-care activation, social support, and self-care behaviors of women living with HF. Methods: A 52-item web-based survey was completed by 246 women living with HF. Results: Women reported a mean body mass index (BMI) of 30.8 ±…

Melczer, Csaba; Melczer, László; Oláh, András; Sélleyné-Gyúró, Mónika; Welker, Zsanett; Ács, Pongrác – Practice and Theory in Systems of Education, 2015
Measurement of physical activity among patients with heart failure typically requires a special approach due to the patients' physical status. Nowadays, a technology is already available that can measure the kinematic movements in 3-D by a pacemaker and implantable defibrillator giving an assessment on software. The telemetry data can be…

Cartron-Mizeracki, Marie-Astrid – ProQuest LLC, 2016
Expenditures on health information technology (HIT) for healthcare organizations are growing exponentially and the value of it is the subject of criticism and skepticism. Because HIT is viewed as capable of improving major health care indicators, the government offers incentives to health care providers and organizations to implement solutions.…

Washburn, Shannon E.; Stewart, Randolph H. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Blood flow through the cardiovascular system is governed by the same physical rules that govern the flow of water through domestic plumbing. Using this analogy in a teaching laboratory, a model of the cardiovascular system constructed of pumps and pipes was used to demonstrate the basic interactions of pressure, flow, and resistance in a regulated…

Dickson, Victoria Vaughan; Lee, Christopher S.; Riegel, Barbara – Journal of Mixed Methods Research, 2011
Despite extensive patient education, few heart failure (HF) patients master self-care. Impaired cognitive function may explain why patient education is ineffective. A concurrent triangulation mixed methods design was used to explore how knowledge and cognitive function influence HF self-care. A total of 41 adults with HF participated in interviews…

Moore, Crystal Dea – Journal of Family Social Work, 2010
A cross-sectional study of 76 family caregivers of older veterans with congestive heart failure utilized the McMaster model of family functioning to examine the impact of family functioning variables (problem solving, communication, roles, affective responsiveness, and affective involvement) on caregiver burden dimensions (relationship burden,…

Lynggaard, V.; Zwisler, A. D.; Taylor, R. S.; May, O.; Nielsen, C. V. – Health Education Research, 2020
We assessed the effects of the patient education strategy 'Learning and Coping' (LC) in cardiac rehabilitation (CR) on mortality and readmissions by exploring results from the LC-REHAB trial. In all, 825 patients with ischaemic heart disease or heart failure were randomized to the intervention arm (LC-CR) or the control arm (standard CR) at three…

Raia, Federica; Smith, Michael S. – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
Developing a sound ability of noticing is a crucial competency for both teachers and medical professionals in the respective professional and disciplinary communities. In this article, we investigate noticing in practice--how members of a professional community in the high-tech modern medicine specialty of Advanced Heart Failure use this ability…

Hopp, Faith Pratt; Thornton, Nancy; Martin, Lindsey – Health & Social Work, 2010
The growing number of older adults with heart failure (HF) suggests the need for more information about how people with this condition experience their illness and strategies for coping with this condition. To address this need, the authors conducted a systematic review of the literature and an in-depth, thematic analysis of qualitative…

Palmas, Walter – Research Ethics, 2018
A non-inferiority design accepts the possibility of some efficacy loss, as part of a "successful", statistically significant result. That loss may be excessive when the non-inferiority threshold is lenient. However, even stringent significance thresholds and safety monitoring may fail to adequately protect study participants when the…

Background: In the UK, general practitioners/family physicians receive pay for performance on management of long-term conditions, according to best-practice indicators. Method: Management of long-term conditions was compared between 721 adults with intellectual disabilities and the general population (n = 764,672). Prevalence of long-term…

Effective healthcare requires both competent individuals and competent teams. With this recognition, health professions education is grappling with how to factor team competence into training and assessment strategies. These efforts are impeded, however, by the absence of a sophisticated understanding of the "the relationship between"…
