This study examined the effects of 2 home healthcare nursing approaches--supportive-educative and mutual goal setting--on self-management for patients with heart failure. Both approaches are specifically related to participants' understanding of heart failure and self-efficacy in managing the condition. An experimental, longitudinal, repeated-measures design was used with a sample of 88 participants. Although no significant difference was demonstrated in participants' understanding of heart failure, the supportive-educative group showed a significantly increased self-efficacy in managing heart failure symptoms.
