Background: Identifying patients with heart failure (HF) who are at risk of experiencing symptomatic adverse drug events (ADEs) is important for improving patient care and quality of life. Several demographic and clinical variables have been identified as potential risk factors for ADEs but limited knowledge is available on the impact of HF patients’ beliefs and perceptions on their experience of ADEs.
