The study is aimed to evaluate if the education of the caregiver is able to reduce hospital admissions of patients with heart failure assisted at home.


Clinical Trial Description

The primary objective of the study is to assess whether an educational intervention aimed at increasing the caregiver's skills is able to reduce hospital admissions for any cause in patients with heart failure assisted at home.

The General Practitioners who agree to participate are randomized in two groups: a) intervention group, whose patients are assisted in accordance with the procedures established by the project; b) control group, whose patients continue to be assisted in the usual modality.
