Description
This book is one a kind in providing tools to improve multiple nursing sensitive indicators. It is an excellent reference guide for staff nurses, CEOs, nurse executives, NDNQI site coordinators, educators, researchers, quality improvement professionals and other healthcare professionals concerned with quality issues.

The historical context of the NDNQI program is also discussed, along with its conceptual and technical development and its role in nursing's ongoing contributions to quality car
