Measuring patient outcomes is arguably the most important job of the advanced practice nurse (APN)-yet conducting outcome assessment and selecting the appropriate instruments for measuring outcome continue to be a challenge, even to the best in the field.
This newly revised edition provides APNs with up-to-date resources and examples of outcome measures, tools, and methods that can be used to expand the APN’s understanding of outcome assessment. The chapters outline numerous examples of practice-based outcome assessments, with detailed descriptions of how an assessment is conducted, as well as guidelines for identifying the proper instruments for measuring outcome.
New to this edition: An extensively updated literature review on outcome measurement A new chapter on outcomes assessment in primary care and ambulatory settings Guidelines for locating instruments and measures for assessment Information on an ongoing international initiative focusing on the development of an APN research data collection toolkit
Written for nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, certified nurse midwives, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and graduate level APNs, this newly updated edition serves as an invaluable resource for APNs, regardless of specialty area of practice or practice setting.
