Quality Health Care

Six substantive position papers are being written including: Measuring Episode of Care Outcomes, Measuring Care Coordination; Measuring the Economic Value of Nursing; Measuring Nurses' Workload; Measuring Patient Engagement; and, Harmonizing Performance Measures - Implications for Practice, Education and Research. The Academy endorsed the formation and goals of the Nursing Alliance for Quality Care (NAQC) as one strategic element to transform care recognizing that nurses are at the front lines of care delivery and, increasingly, help to design, implement and evaluate the care systems and related outcomes. Fellow Gerri Lamb, PhD, RN, FAAN, was named Vice Chair of NAQC.
