Lead Story: Nurse-Led Care Improves Heart Patient Recovery

A new study has found that patients with heart failure whose care was directed by nurse managers could perform everyday activities better and had fewer hospitalizations than patients with usual care.

Podcast Description:

This audio program features current news and information from the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

  • This week’s News In Numbers says blacks and Hispanics have more preventable hospitalization for diabetes than whites.
  • We report on a study that examined risks of complications from chemotherapy for breast cancer.
  • And nurse-led care improves recovery and functioning in patients with heart failure. The report features an interview with Dr. Jane Sisk, the researcher who led the study at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.
