This is a particularly important result given that the MCID for the MLHFQ is a 5-7 point reduction on the overall score (Rector and Cohn 1992).

Major Finding: Patients with chronic systolic heart failure who participated in twice-weekly tai chi classes for 12 weeks improved their median MLHFQ scores by 19 points, whereas those enrolled in a control group experienced no change.
