Psychiatric consultation-liaison nurses (PCLNs) provide psychiatric nursing care within medical-surgical settings. The purpose of this descriptive, exploratory survey study was to determine meaningfulness and agreement of psychiatric consultation-liaison nursing (PCLN) outcome indicators, derived in prior studies, through a national survey of PCLNs. The population consisted of 136 members of the International Society of Psychiatric Consultation-Liaison Nurses (ISPCLN) living in the United States. Sixty-eight PCLNs (50.0% return rate) provided: (a) demographic and professional information, (b) ratings of each outcome indicator for importance to PCLN practice, and (c) the extent that PCLN influences the outcome. Indicators rated as highly important and influential showed consistent themes relevant to the general practice of PCLN and its immediate outcomes, while those rated lower appeared to be remote outcomes or idiosyncratic to particular PCLN settings. It was hypothesized that level and variability in agreement were related to PCLNs' practice patterns. Four factors were derived from practice pattern ratings: (a) direct mental health services for patients and families, (b) education to patients, families, and staff, (c) staff supervision and support in dealing with patients, families, and staff, and (d) service to staff for personal and administrative issues. Four summated factor scores for each participant were subjected to cluster analysis to derive three major practice groups: (a) patient-family, (b) staff-administration, and (c) integrated practice. Two multiple discriminant analyses were performed using item ratings of importance or influence to predict membership in a specific practice group. No reliable relationship was found between ratings of specific outcome items and practice group membership. The study revealed a subset of outcome indicators that were rated as meaningful to general PCLN practice in terms of importance and influence. [Poster Presentation]
