    Patients with congestive heart failure can have very challenging medication regimes to follow. Due to the complexity of these regimes, patients may have difficulty adhering to their prescribed medications. This study used questionnaires to assess individual patient's understanding of heart failure medications after a recent hospitalization, and their level of adherence to medication regimen. A non-experimental descriptive design was used with a convenience sample of CHF diagnosed patients discharged from an acute care setting. Patients were contacted 10-14 days after discharge to assess their understanding of the CHF medications using an adherence tool called the MMAS-8 as well as a questionnaire developed by the researchers.
