Quality Care-Metrics are indicators for measuring and monitoring the quality of nursing and midwifery care delivered against agreed standards in health care (HSE, 2015).

It is the intention of the National Group that Quality Care Metrics will be developed specifically for the PHN service over the next 12 months.

 

Currently all grey literature, which includes all PPG’s, documentation, projects, initiatives, reports, evaluations are being forwarded by participating sites to support a systematic review of all literature pertaining to this project  for analysis.

 

It is proposed that an eDelphi survey, data collection round 1 will commence in February, 2017.

Further updates will be provided in 2017.
