Results: By the using of a telephone nursing intervention with heart disease patient’s health gains were identified related to: symptomatic control, management of the therapeutic regimen, use of health services, safety/adverse events and quality of life.
Conclusions: The telephone nursing intervention contributes to optimize the follow-up to the patient, translating into health gains sensitive to nursing care.
Implication to professional practice: In the contexts of nursing practice for adult patients with heart disease, telephone follow-up proves to be an intervention to be considered, translating into gains in health, promoting patient follow-up and improving training in disease management.
