negative effects on both the physical/physical, mental, and socioeconomic dimension of patients
suffering from it. This syndrome is associated with high morbidity and mortality and despite the
introduction of new treatment protocols the prognosis continues and remains poor. Patients with the
syndrome experience repeated hospitalizations, long-term re-hospitalizations, with symptoms and
signs, which exhaust them and all of them, affect their Quality of Life (QOL). In recent years, special
attention has been paid to the QOL with many studies internationally investigating and examining
the effect of non-pharmacological interventions, managed by nurses on their improvement and
their effect on the QOL of these patients.

health professionals Nurses on the care of patients with HF, by improving their self-care, through
empowerment, with training programs on discharge from the hospital, in their transfer from the
