 Research Resources

Official site for the Self Care of Heart Failure Index.

This instrument was developed by Dr. Barbara Riegel over the past 2 decades. This instrument has strong psychometric support and is frequently used to measure self care in studies of patients with heart failure. This site offers a brief history of the instrument, the Self Care of Heart Failure Model upon which the instrument is based, the instrument, foreign language versions, directions for use and for scoring and information about adaptations of the instrument in development to measure self care in other patient populations. As this instrument is in the public domain, it may be accessed through this site and used without specific permission from Dr. Riegel, the developer of this instrument.
