Description:
Published in 2006, Measurement of Nursing and Midwifery Interventions: Guidance and Resource Pack is a two part publication comprising An Evaluation of the Extent of Measurement of Nursing and Midwifery Interventions in Ireland (Part 1) and Development of Measurement of Nursing and Midwifery Interventions: Guidance and Resource Pack (Part 2). Part 1 contains a report on the extent to which nurses and midwives in Ireland document their interventions and the outcomes of these interventions. The research conducted for this project showed that nurses and midwives working in a variety of healthcare settings were using instruments to gather data relating to the outcomes of their interventions. The use of such instruments may have been mainly driven by participation in service quality improvement/assurance schemes and were considered to have enhanced multidisciplinary collaboration and co-operation, as well as assisting nurses and midwives to articulate their contribution to healthcare provision. Part 2 contains preliminary guidance and assistance to nurses, midwives and services seeking to determine what interventions to select and assess. Based on the findings of the research, it provides simple tips on selecting and implementing instruments to guide nursing and midwifery interventions. In addition, internet resources are listed relating to the instruments and themes most frequently identified in the research.
