Background and Objectives: Re-admission of patients with heart failure is increasingly high. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the effects of teaching heart failure patients and their families based on their learning needs on the frequency of re-admission.

Materials and Methods: This clinical trial was conducted on 75 patients with heart failure. Samples were divided randomly into one experimental group and two control groups. For the experimental group, along with their family members, teaching was done on the basis of their learning needs using CHFPLNI. For the control group (1), teaching was done without assessment of learning needs and with the presence of their family members and for the control group (2), teaching was conducted without assessment of learning needs and without the presence of their family members. Re-admission on day 30, 60 and 90 after discharge was calculated. The collected data was fed to SPSS- 11.5 software and analyzed using Chi-square and Exact Fisher test.

Results: Findings showed that in terms of re-admission after the intervention, there is no statistically significant difference between the experimental group and the control groups (P> 0.005).

Conclusion: Intervention on re-admission did not show a significant statistical impact. Therefore, further investigation is needed. Designing studies to consider frequent hospital readmissions with differentiation of causes and longer follow-ups is recommended.

In the intervention group, three educational sessions were conducted individually, while usual care was conducted for the control group. Measurements on fasting blood glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride, blood pressure, body mass index, and smoking status were gathered at baseline, immediately and six months after the intervention in both groups. Data were analyzed using the SPSS.

Results: The mean of systolic blood pressure (p<0.005), fasting triglycerides (p<0.005), and fasting blood glucose (p<0.005) were significantly different before and after the intervention between the two groups.

A three-prat questionnaire was used to collect data: 1. Demographic characteristics, 2. Templer death anxiety scale 3. Beck anxiety scale (to determine patientschr('39') baseline anxiety). For analyzing the data, descriptive statistics and ANCOVA were used in SPSS v.22 software.
Results: The age range of the patients was between 27 and 98 years, with the highest age group (65 years) with 83.8%. Fifty-two percent of the sample were female (n=42) and 47% were male (n=38). Seventy two point five percent were married, 61% were illiterate, 40% were unemployed and 55% reported poor financial status. The mean score of death anxiety in heart failure patients was 47.95. The highest score of death anxiety in these patients was 61 (1.3%) and the lowest score was 30 (1.3%). More than 90% of patients had moderate (82/5%) and severe (11/25%) death anxiety. The results of ANCOVA showed that the relationship between death anxiety level and employment status variable (P<0.04) was significant.
Conclusion: The results of this study indicated a high death anxiety among the majority of studied population which can be due to lack of adequate training in coping with death anxiety in patients with heart failure. Accordingly, it is suggested that more attention should be paid to mental health authorities in order to improve the mental health of these populations in this area.
