The Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) was developed to evaluate the effects of nursing interventions, but can be used by other disciplines to evaluate outcomes of their interventions. This presentation will report on current research to evaluate the 190 outcome measures contained in the first edition of the classification. The current research is funded by NINR and will be entering the fourth year of funding in the tall of 2002. The NOC outcome measures were evaluated in 10 clinical sites representing a continuum of care from acute care to home care and nursing home care. The test sites were located in Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, and Minnesota. Inter-rater reliability was evaluated using percent agreement and Kappa scores. Criterion validity was evaluated using Pearson r to assess the correlation between the NOC outcomes and tools or measures with known statistics assessing the concept contained in the NOC outcomes. If standardized measures were not available, an assessment tool was used to derive information directly from the patient record. The sensitivity of the NOC outcomes to changes in patient condition was evaluated by collecting more than one measure on the same patient when feasible. The average change and the percent of change were determined and tested for significance. The principal investigators met with staff on units or agencies where data was collected for the purpose of obtaining feedback concerning the nurses' perceptions of the ease of use, the feasibility of use, and the general response to use of the outcomes. An overview of the methods and the unanticipated problems are unanticipated successes will be described. Examples of findings in each of the areas of evaluation noted above will be shared and suggestions for further research will be addressed.
