Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this systematic review was to highlight the effect of nurse-led 1:1 patienteducation sessions on Quality of Life (QoL), readmission rates and healthcare costs for adults with heartfailure (HF) living independently in the community.Method: A systematic review of randomised control trials was undertaken. Using the search terms nurse,education, heart failure, hospitalisation, readmission, rehospitalisation, economic burden, cost,expenditure and quality of life in PubMed, CINAHL and Google Scholar databases were searched.Papers pertaining to nurse-led 1:1 HF disease management of education of adults in the community witha history of HF were reviewed.Result: The results of this review identified nurse-led education sessions for adults with HF contribute toreduction in hospital readmissions, reduction in hospitalisation and a cost benefit. Additionally, higherfunctioning and improved QoL were also identified.Conclusion: These results suggest that nurse-led patient education for adults with HF improves QoL andreduces hospital admissions and readmissions.Practice implications: Nurse-led education can be delivered utilising diverse methods and impact toreduce readmission as well as hospitalisation.
