Paper Presentation: Supportive Care/Quality Improvement — Findings from an International Delphi-Study to Develop a Preliminary Core Set of Nursing-Sensitive Quality Indicators for Pediatric Oncology (216-2)

11:50 am – 12:10 pm Friday, October 29

Although nursing-sensitive indicators (NSIs) have been developed to measure factors influencing nursing care quality and patient outcomes in general and in select specialty areas, a core set of NSIs for international pediatric oncology nursing practice does not exist.

The purpose of this research study was to develop a preliminary core set of NSIs for international pediatric oncology nursing that is relevant, actionable, and feasible to measure across varied resource settings and countries. Study findings reflect attributes of international pediatric oncology nursing practice relevant for quality measurement and benchmarking and will inform future studies to finalize a core set of NSIs.
