Module 1: Supporting the emotional adjustment of people with chronic heart failure

This module is designed to assist health professionals to identify depression in people with Chronic Heart Failure (CHF). Depression is common in people with CHF and can make providing care more complex. This module will help you support the emotional adjustment of people with CHF.

In this module you will learn to:

  • Understand the importance of identifying and treating depression in CHF
  • Identify patients with depressive symptoms
  • Know the 'Red Flags' to look for
  • Take appropriate action based on a patient's presentation.

Module 2: Supporting behaviour change

Health care professionals working in Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) are frequently challenged by how to share information about CHF self-care in a way that patients are empowered and assume responsibility and to effective support patients to develop self-management skills without being directive. Health professionals working with people with CHF often encounter patients who are uninterested or resistant to change, or struggling with maintaining longer term changes.

This module aims to help with these challenges. In this module you will learn to:

  • How to conduct a behavioural analysis of CHF self-management behaviour
  • How to strengthen goal engagement
  • Strategies for dealing with blocks
  • How to assist patients with behaviour change maintenance.
