Abstract:
The study of health outcomes is one of the top research priorities in community health nursing. The purpose of this study is to identity precise and practical health outcome indicators in the community health nursing setting. The study methodology is a modified Delphi technique. To prepare the initial questionnaire, the researchers conducted four focus groups of 6-10 community nurses in a Southeastern state. Based on the results of the responses of the focus groups and review by a panel of four experts, the research team developed an inventory of 156 outcome items. In Spring l997, the inventory was distributed to 500 community health nurses in the same state to determine their agreement with the items. The study will involve two subsequent rounds to reach a consensus as to the outcomes for community health nursing practice. The final sample will be approximately 200 community health nurses, representing clinic-based nurses, home health nurses, and nurse administrators. The goal of the project is to develop an inventory of outcomes: 1) to investigate the effectiveness of community health nursing practice, and 2) to explore methods for delivery of nursing care in community settings.
