[Research Presentation] Objectives: 1.The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of outcomes measurements as used in an academic nursing center. 2. The learner will be able to demonstrate understanding of the relationship between the services advanced practice nurses provide and an individualÆs overall health status. Design: This is a descriptive pilot study designed to identify factors that contribute to the overall health status of clients who receive primary care services delivered by nurse practitioners. Concept: An individual's self-reporting of their physical and mental health profiles are valuable tools for measuring health service outcomes. There is limited evidence that supports the relationship between the services NP's delivered and reported health status outcomes. Research Question: What are the differences between the health status of patients on the first visit and subsequent visits for patients who receive primary care services in an academic nursing center? Site/Population: UNACARE Health Center is an academic nursing center that serves an inner-city African American community in Jackson, Mississippi. This four mile square area has a total of 4,865 households with 25% of families' income falling below the poverty level. Health issues are characterized by high rates of hypertension, stroke, asthma, diabetes, and obesity. Outcome measures: The SF 12 was utilized to measure health status. Monthly patient census reports were used to measure the frequency of services rendered. Findings: Data collection will be completed in June. Findings will be presented at the conference. Implications: Outcome measurements utilized at an Academic nursing center may be replicated at other centers. Key words: Outcome measurement, Health Status Survey (SF-12).
