Silver Spring, MD - Since the American Nurses Association (ANA) established the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI®) in 1998, hospital participation in the program continues to grow from the original group of 30 to well over 1,000 diverse healthcare facilities today.

For the first time, participating NDNQI facilities who have sustained an improvement in a designated nursing sensitive indicator share their NDNQI experiences. Each of the monograph's 14 profiles summarizes -- in the words of the nurses who worked with their hospital's data -- the effects of NDNQI on quality measurement and improved patient outcomes.

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 care.

The book is one of 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.
