Information about quality of care within health organisations can be taken from three categories: ‘structure,’ ‘process,’ and

outcomes’ (Donabedian, 1988). Firstly, ‘structure is descriptive of the context in which health care is delivered, inclusive of

its buildings, its staff, its financial structures, and all its varied equipment. Secondly, ‘process’ indicates the interactions between

patients and care providers through out the delivery of healthcare. Lastly, ‘outcomes’ indicate the effects of healthcare on the overall

health status of patients and populations.

There is therefore a clear relationship between processes (e.g. Falls assessment,Waterlow

Assessment, Standard Precautions) used by health care professionals and the quality of the care that is provided,that is, patient outcomes.
The delivery of health care services by practitioners is measured by process data.

TASK: Use the scholarly literature to identify and

explain the use of process and outcome data in the delivery of safe, quality nursing care in health institutions.

Then use one example

of process and outcome data to demonstrate your understanding oftheir use in providing safe, high quality care in health

institutions.
