Questionnaires Designed to Assess Knowledge of Atrial Fibrillation: A Systematic Review.

J Cardiovasc Nurs 2019 May/Jun;34(3):E14-E21

Wilson Tam, PhD Assistant Professor, Alice Lee Centre for Nursing Studies, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, Singapore. Brigitte Woo, MClinRes PhD Candidate, Alice Lee Centre for Nursing Studies, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore. Toon Wei Lim, PhD Senior Consultant, Cardiac Department; Director, Coronary Care Unit, National University Heart Centre; and Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University Hospital, Singapore.

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with high mortality and morbidity. Approximately half of patients with AF and at risk of stroke do not receive oral anticoagulation, despite its demonstrable reduction of stroke risk. Low adherence to anticoagulation medications may be a result of limited knowledge of AF among patients; hence, a validated instrument to assess AF knowledge is warranted. Read More

J Cardiovasc Nurs 2019 Mar 6. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Jennifer L. Smith, PhD, RN Postdoctoral Fellow, College of Nursing, University of Kentucky, Lexington. Terry A. Lennie, PhD, RN, FAHA, FAAN Senior Associate Dean and Professor, College of Nursing, University of Kentucky, Lexington. Misook L. Chung, PhD, RN, FAHA, FAAN Professor, College of Nursing, University of Kentucky, Lexington. Gia Mudd-Martin, PhD, MPH, RN, FAHA Associate Professor, University of Kentucky, College of Nursing Lexington, Kentucky.

Background: Low-sodium diet adherence is foundational to heart failure (HF) self-management.

Patricia Thomson, PhD, RN, MA, MPH Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport, University of Stirling, Scotland, United Kingdom. Kate Howie, BSc Teaching Fellow, Faculty of Natural Sciences, University of Stirling, Scotland, United Kingdom. A.R.M. Mohan, PhD, MPH Research Assistant, Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport, Institute of Social Marketing, University of Stirling, Scotland, United Kingdom. Misook L. Chung, PhD, RN Professor, College of Nursing, University of Kentucky, Lexington.

Background: Self-efficacy is a critical factor for quality of life in patients who undergo coronary artery bypass grafting, as well as for their family caregivers. However, there is lack of knowledge about whether patients' self-efficacy and caregivers' perceptions of patient self-efficacy are associated with quality of life in patient and caregiver dyads.

Objectives: The aims of this study were to compare self-efficacy and quality of life between patients and family caregivers and to examine whether patients' and caregivers' perceptions of patient self-efficacy were associated with their own and their partner's quality of life in patient and caregiver dyads who were waiting for patients' coronary artery bypass grafting.

Richard Sawatzky, PhD, RN Professor, School of Nursing, Trinity Western University, British Columbia; and Research Scientist, Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences, Providence Health Care, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Background: Many people with congenital heart disease (CHD) experience psychological distress related to medical complications and psychosocial issues related to the disease. Although studies show that social support and coping strategies are closely associated with psychological distress in people struggling with different chronic health challenges, very little is known about whether the same factors hold true for the psychological distress of people living with CHD.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between types of social support, coping strategies, and psychological distress for individuals living with CHD. Read More

Background: Although studies exist comparing low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) in the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD), most have limitations in the mathematical models used to evaluate their prognostic power adjusted for the other risk factors (cardiovascular risk).

Objective: The aim of this study was to compare LDL-C and non-HDL-C in patients with CVD to determine whether both parameters predict CVD similarly.

Methods: A cohort of 1322 subjects drawn from the general population of a Spanish region was followed between 1992 and 2006. Read More
