The ONMSD have commissioned a research project to update the suite of Quality Care-Metrics and indicators to measure quality of care processes in the Public Health Nursing service.

This involves the PHN service critically reviewing the existing suite of PHN service metrics and identifying other relevant new metrics that can be used to measure the quality of Public Health and Community Nursing care processes in the future through a series of online questionnaires. The letter and information pack attached outlines this national research study in detail.


The attaached letter requests DPHNs to forward the attached Information Pack to all nurses and midwives working within the Public Health Nursing services in their remit. Those interested in participating are asked to email
