Examining Knowledge and Skill Requirements in Pediatric Home Care Nursing

January 1, 2004 | By |

The purpose of this research was to examine current approaches, and develop and test a new method for measuring nursing productivity in home care settings in Ontario, by evaluating its relationship to outcomes for the system and the patient.

Specifically, this study investigated the type of mechanisms used to measure home care nursing productivity in Ontario (i.e., the quantity of nursing inputs – the mix of nursing labour) and the structures in place in CCACs and home care provider agencies to promote the development of knowledge work in nursing (i.e., ongoing education programs offered, support for education, evidence of learning organization principles).
