Abstract [en]

Nurses in different settings are involved in caring for patients with heart failure. In the clinic, hospital, nursing home or patients' home, the nurse has a role in detecting, identifying and treating heart failure. In order to provide optimal care, literature on possible and effective interventions should be available to nurses. This study gives an overview of nursing care for patients with heart failure as described in practice, literature and standard nursing care plans. Based on interviews of 45 nurses, a review of all pertinent literature published between 1983 and 1993 and a review of standard nursing care plans used in the Netherlands to care for patients with heart failure, four composite themes emerged; namely, basic nursing care, assessment and observation, symptom-relieving interventions, and patient education. Caring for patients with heart failure is very complex and is often aimed at keeping a very delicate balance between, e.g. rest and activity, fluid intake and elimination, and therapeutic cost and benefit. Treatment strategies for optimizing care for these patients are described.
