European journal of heart failure, 20(4), 689-696. https://doi.org/10.1002/ejhf.1112

Aims: Psychosocial factors are rarely collected in studies investigating the prognosis of patients with heart failure (HF), and only time to first-event is commonly reported. We investigated the prognostic value of psychosocial factors for predicting...
