Title:
Outcomes Measurement for Nursing Practice
Abstract:
Outcomes Measurement for Nursing Practice
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2002
Conference Date:July, 2002
Author:Prevost, Suzanne, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Middle Tennessee State University
Title:NHC Chair of Nursing Excellence
Nurses around the world are constantly challenged to work harder, faster, with less resources -- and simultaneously improve outcomes. As we restructure our units, reduce our workforce, and reorganize our educational programs, the critical question remains: What are the outcomes? The demand for outcomes measurement is constantly increasing. In our current cost-conscious environment, payers, providers, and consumers are seeking the information provided by outcomes measurement. Outcomes data have the potential to influence health care decision-making at individual, institutional, and societal levels. In keeping with the congress theme, we will examine the origin, evolution, and "How far we have come" with outcomes measurement. Current approaches to outcomes measurement will be discussed, as well as visions for the future. We will explore strengths and weaknesses of various outcome measurement methods. Strategies for designing and conducting outcomes evaluation studies will be shared through lecture, case studies and interactive exercises. Participants will devise a plan for measuring outcomes relevant to their individual roles. Participants will be able to use the content to support development of outcomes evaluation efforts and programs in their own facilities. This presentation will be useful to practicing nurses who want to measure and demonstrate the impact of their practice, to administrators who must compare costs and benefits of various nursing interventions, and to educators who teach nurses how to evaluate effectiveness and demonstrate value.
