Research project: Nurse sensitive outcomes and indicators in ambulatory chemotherapy - Dormant - Dormant

Currently Active: 
No

The Nursing Contribution to Quality in Cancer Care work stream was established by the National Cancer Action Team in the spring of 2009. A work group was set up to take forward a range of developments and tasked with delivering a set of actions around core issues that pertain to nursing workforce and the Cancer Reform Strategy. Its specific focus is on quality and outcomes of care.

This project is the first stage in developing a system of indicators for quality outcomes that are sensitive to nursing in ambulatory chemotherapy. It aimed to identify and assess the evidence for indicators which could be used to indicate quality nursing care which leads to improved patient outcomes in ambulatory cancer chemotherapy services, and to identify a small number of priority areas for development of a pilot system. To do this we undertook a series of scoping reviews and consultations with clinical experts.
