Abstract

Continuing its commitment to patient care quality, the American Nurses Association appointed a committee in 1997 to expand nursing-sensitive quality indicators beyond acute care. This article is the final report describing the processes used to identify a core set of community-based quality indicators relevant to nurses across the care continuum and identifies next steps. The indicator categories are (a) change in symptom severity, (b) strength of the therapeutic alliance, (c) utilization of services, (d) client satisfaction, (e) risk reduction, (f) increase in protective factors, and (g) level of function/functional status. Potential indicators requiring further research and development are also described.
