Our mission? Aid our clients in the creation of a decision aid for end-stage heart failure patients who have been recommended for an LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device). Our digital tools will be built specifically for senior citizens and their caretaker(s), who would have the LVAD for life and will experience significant changes in their daily routine. After the semester, they will be used to further research in patient decision making. The decision aid will include:

Hypertext FAQ

To provide a starting point for questions users may have about the LVAD and how quality of life could change.

Search Button

For when users have a specific question they want to ask and may need to get in touch with an expert.


Both patient and the potential caregiver will be able to view the patient’s prognostic information to get a better idea of how an LVAD could improve or worsen their quality of life

Easy Access

The decision aid will be available online for both patient and the potential caregiver to view whenever and wherever they are.
