What is it about?

This study looked at how talking to a nurse on the phone can help people with heart failure. We collected information from many studies to see if this phone coaching made a difference. We found that it did! People who talked to a nurse on the phone took better care of themselves and had a better quality of life. This shows that talking to a nurse on the phone can be a helpful way to take care of your health if you have heart failure.

Why is it important?

This study is unique because it focuses on the impact of nurse-led telephone health coaching for people with heart failure. While previous research has shown some benefits, there has been uncertainty. Our systematic review and meta-analysis bring together data from multiple studies, making our findings more robust and reliable. This timely research addresses a growing need for accessible and effective healthcare interventions, especially through remote methods like phone coaching. By demonstrating the positive effects on self-care behavior and quality of life, our study can help healthcare providers and policymakers make informed decisions about using nurse-led telecoaching for heart failure patients. This could lead to improved patient outcomes and a more patient-centered approach to care.


I am truly excited about the insights our study brings to the field of healthcare. Personally, I believe that this work has the potential to make a tangible difference in the lives of patients and contribute to the advancement of patient-centered care. It's my hope that our findings will encourage healthcare providers to consider telecoaching as a means of promoting better outcomes and empower patients to take an active role in managing their health.
