Patient Compliance & CHF Nursing CareA 6 page research paper that discusses care of chronic health failure patients. Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a prevalent chronic condition hat can be characterized as encompassing major fluctuations in clinical status?? as the disease advances toward the more advanced stages (Di Salvo and Warner Stevenson, 2003, p. 87). In order to obtain the most positive patient outcomes possible and reduce hospitalizations, while maintaining quality of life, patient compliance with prescribed regimens for CHF is a crucial factor. This examination of literature examines the topic of CHF patient compliance as it applies to the practice and role of the family nurse practitioner, using Orem’s Self-Care Deficit theory.
