Summary "Since publication of the first edition of this book, the knowledge and practice of nurse intervention in chronic heart failure outcomes has expanded considerably, with programmes being set up in many centres." "This second edition changes the emphasis from reviewing the research to guidance on implementation, making the book a tool for practitioners managing CHF patients." "The editors Simon Stewart and Lynda Blue have invited leading authors to contribute chapters to this second edition, which will be a source of information for all specialist cardiac nurses, and other health care workers in CHF."--BOOK JACKET
