Synthesis project : cardiac clients and nurses perception of self management Pacheco, AnnaMarie; Juhn, Haeyoon; Chang, Jinny

Abstract

• Self management is an integral part of the continuum of care for cardiac health clients as cardiac conditions often require lifestyle changes. Therefore, it is important to understand how patients and health care professionals view self management to improve communications and patient health. • We investigated the literature regarding self management perspectives and found that more research needs to be done. We therefore interviewed 8 clients and 8 nurses at a cardiac outpatient clinic in Surrey, British Columbia about their perspectives on self management and their own regiments/recommendations.
