Background and Objectives: Re-admission of patients with heart failure is increasingly high. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the effects of teaching heart failure patients and their families based on their learning needs on the frequency of re-admission.

Materials and Methods: This clinical trial was conducted on 75 patients with heart failure. Samples were divided randomly into one experimental group and two control groups. For the experimental group, along with their family members, teaching was done on the basis of their learning needs using CHFPLNI. For the control group (1), teaching was done without assessment of learning needs and with the presence of their family members and for the control group (2), teaching was conducted without assessment of learning needs and without the presence of their family members. Re-admission on day 30, 60 and 90 after discharge was calculated. The collected data was fed to SPSS- 11.5 software and analyzed using Chi-square and Exact Fisher test.

Results: Findings showed that in terms of re-admission after the intervention, there is no statistically significant difference between the experimental group and the control groups (P> 0.005).

Conclusion: Intervention on re-admission did not show a significant statistical impact. Therefore, further investigation is needed. Designing studies to consider frequent hospital readmissions with differentiation of causes and longer follow-ups is recommended.
