Abstract

Emerging evidence suggests that heart failure patients who have mild cognitive impairment (MCI) may experience greater difficulty with self-care.
This article reports a systematic review which addressed the objective ‘What is the evidence for an association between MCI and self-care, measured in one or more of the self-care domains related to heart failure (HF) in adults who have a diagnosis of chronic HF?’. We adopted PRISMA guidelines for the review and synthesis of quantitative research studies that formally measured both cognitive function and self-care in heart failure patients and sought to describe the relationship between these factors.
