In heart failure, the control and management of the disease are a difficult and also a complex process due to the characteristics of physical and psychosocial problems it causes and the intensity of the disease. In heart failure care, the use of nursing process is important. If this process is synthesized with theories and models, patient needs can be determined more systematically. In her interaction theory, Ida Jean Orlando, who is known as one of the leading theoreticians concerning the nursing process, attracted attention to the importance of mutual communication between the patient and nurse and indicated that mutual communication between the patient and nurse forms the basis of nursing practices. In this case report, the nursing process of a patient with heart failure was prepared in line with Ida Jean Orlando’s interaction theory, his/her needs were determined, and the nursing interventions were planned and applied. The distress of the patient whose need for care was met significantly decreased, and there were changes in his/her verbal and non-verbal behaviors in a positive direction and increase in his/her adaptation to disease management. In conclusion, it is possible to state that using Orlando’s interaction theory in the application of the nursing process is advantageous and efficient, and the theory is appropriate for use in patients with heart failure.
