OLIVEIRA, Ana Paula Dias de et al. Health education: the effectiveness of interventions in patients with heart failure. Rev. Bras. Enferm. [online]. 2020, vol.73, n.2, e20180782.  Epub Mar 09, 2020. ISSN 1984-0446.


To evaluate the effectiveness of NIC interventions “Teaching: Disease Process”, “Health Education” and “Cardiac Care” in the improvement of NOC results in individuals with Heart Failure (HF), and the Nursing Diagnosis (ND) “Ineffective Health Control”.


Retrospective cohort, conducted at a Health Education in Nursing outpatient clinic. Fourteen patients with HF had follow-up for one year in six bimonthly consultations. The effectiveness of interventions was verified through the change of the result scores through the Friedman’s Non-Parametric Test and Analysis of Non-Parametric Variance for repeated measures. The level of significance was 5%.


The interventions were implemented in consultations in a variety of activities. There was a significant improvement in the result scores until the fourth visit (p<0.001).


The interventions were effective in improving outcomes in patients with HF and Ineffective Health Control.
