Abstract

Psychological conditions such as depression can have a greater impact on morbidity and mortality outcomes than traditional risk factors for these outcomes. Despite their importance, it is rare for clinicians to assess patients for these conditions and rarer still for them to consistently and adequately manage them. Illumination of the phenomena of comorbid psychological conditions in heart failure may increase awareness of the problem, resulting in improved assessment and management.
