Improving Outcomes in Chronic Heart Failure by Simon Stewart

Book Description

Heart failure is a condition that often results in chronic tiredness and shortness of breath. It also requires complex nursing and medical treatment especially after a hospital admission, which is all too frequent for persons with heart failure. This book describes and discusses the latest research concerning the benefits of having specially trained nurses manage the care of patients with heart failure after they have been discharged from hospital to their own home. Leading nurses and doctors from around the world discuss their experiences with this type of innovative and effective care program. Building upon these experiences, this book also contains a practical guide to developing this type of care program into a fully functional service that provides quality care to those patients admitted to hospital with heart failure.
