Older persons services nursing quality care metrics final report to ONMSD.
Murphy, Fiona A.; Doody, Owen; Lyons, Rosemary; Sezgin, Duygu
n/a This report presents the findings of a Nursing and Midwifery Quality Care-Metrics project for Older Persons Services (OPS) in Ireland. The aim of the project was to identify a final suite of nursing quality care process metrics and associated indicators. To achieve this purpose, seven work-streams (acute, mental health, public health nursing, children, older persons services, intellectual disability and midwifery) were established and led by Nursing and Midwifery Planning and Development (Appendix 1, 2, 3). Academic support was provided from three universities in Ireland. It was agreed that a Quality Care Process Metric is a quantifiable measure that captures quality in terms of how (or to what extent) nursing care is being done in relation to an agreed standard. A Quality Care Process Indicator is a quantifiable measure that captures what nurses are doing to provide that care in relation to a specific tool or method. PUBLISHED
