|Heart Failure Quality of Life||Behavioral: Problem-Solving Treatment Behavioral: Time Management||Not Applicable|
Heart failure (HF) is the end stage of all cardiovascular diseases, and it imposes a huge burden in the United States in terms of morbidity, mortality, and economic cost. Although disease management programs have been developed to curb these costs and address the complexities of HF management, evaluations of these programs have yielded equivocal results.
With this study the Investigators plan to: (1) to determine the feasibility of telephone delivered PST for outpatients with HF and reduced QoL by obtaining estimates of yield, retention, patient acceptance, and patient satisfaction; (2) to determine whether telephone-delivered PST is associated with greater improvements in QoL than telephone-delivered Time Management over 8 weeks; and (3) to determine whether telephone-delivered PST is associated with greater reductions in depressive symptoms and/or greater improvements in self-efficacy or objectively assessed daily physical activity than telephone-delivered Time Management over 8 weeks.
