The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research Clinical Practice Guidelines on heart failure recommends that providers assess patients' health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and recommends using HRQOL information to modify treatment and guide patient and family teaching to facilitate adaptation to heart failure.
