Patients with heart failure are frequently readmitted to the hospital.  Approximately one-fourth of these re-admisssions are potentially preventable.  Adherence to suggested disease management behaviors is crucial to improve patient outcomes such as hospital re-admisssion.  I am piloting the delivery of a self-management care transition intervention that uses a technology platform to improve adherence.

   I am interested in 1-2 students who would like to be actively involved in research involving chronically ill patients with heart failure.
