 Health Promotion and Disease Prevention

Peer-reviewed articles pertaining to psychosocial research on management of CHF in African American males in the primary care clinics.

“Durant, R., Brown, Q., & Cherrington et al. (2013). Social Support among African Americans with Heart Failure: Is There a Role for Community Health Advisors? Heart & Lung, 42(1): 19-25”. Health Promotion and Disease Prevention

The objective of the article is to explore the function of social support of can improve health of African Americans with heart failure. The strength of the article is that it explores health promotion activities of community health advisors within their communities, with the anticipation that majority of the provided social support activities would surpass disease contexts. The weakness of the article is that it does explore how educating the family and friends of patients can enable them to offer social support to patients.


The results present prominent themes showed in the results entail the challenge of meeting general life and health care needs of the patient, the disparity in social support gotten from friends and family and chances for Community health advisors to offer numerous forms of social support to patients. The evidence can be used in my topic because social isolation and social support hinders or promotes the ability of heart failure patients to access health care services and improve their well-being.  Gallagher et al (2014) heart failure is burdensome and insistent and taking care of one’s self   is normally attained when a patient has spousal support.

“Jeon, Y, Kraus, S., Jowsey, T., & Glasgow, N. (2010). The experience of living with chronic heart failure: a narrative review of qualitative studies. BMC Health Services Research, 10:77”

This article explores the way chronic heart failure on influences the wellbeing of patients including reduction in their ability to stay independent and capability to undertake particular daily living activities, economic and psychosocial capacity. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2014) notes that quality of life as it relates with health entails domains associated with physical, social, mental and emotional functioning. Health Promotion and Disease Prevention

The strength of the article is that it explores the numerous factors that influence peoples’ self-management and self -care in the disease course entailing service encounters such as continuity and quality of care along with personal relationships. The weakness of the article is that it doesn’t offer a comprehensive depiction of chronic heart disease by examining disparities between genders and disparities within age groups.

The results of the review identify the most significant influences of chronic heart disease on a patient’s daily life entailing social isolation and living with anxiety. The evidence of the research can be used in my topic because it inform service providers, health professionals and educators about experiences of patients and probable interventions  for promoting their  health. Liljeroos et al (2015) argue that the care for CHF patients majorly occurs at home and the spouse offers the major assistance in supporting self-care of the patients.
