The purpose of this study is to assess the relationship between cognitive impairment, patient self-management, health, and health service use in adults with heart failure (NYHA Class 2 and 3). The research questions are:
- How is cognitive impairment (memory, attention, global and executive function) related to various aspects of impaired self-management (knowledge of adherence, adherence to sodium restriction and medications, symptom monitoring of weight changes, and decision and action to seek care)?
- How are these relationships altered when adjusting for medical, demographic, and psychosocial factors?
- What are the relationships among degree of cognitive impairment, quality self-management, health status, and health service use?
