Nursing and midwifery quality care-metrics: intellectual disability services research report to OMNSD
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 Intellectual Disability (ID) Services 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, midwifery, older person, and intellectual disability services) were established and led by the Nursing and Midwifery Planning and Development Units (NMPDU) project officers (Appendix 1, 2, 3). Academic support was provided from three universities in Ireland (National University of Ireland Galway, University College Dublin and University of Limerick). 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
