Dyads affected by chronic heart failure: a randomized study evaluating effects of education and psychosocial support to patients with heart failure and their partners
Journal of Cardiac Failure, 05/21/2012

More frequent professional contact and ongoing skills training may be necessary to have a higher impact on dyad outcomes and warrants further research.
