Dissemination and Implementation of Evidence-Based Methods to Measure and Improve Pain Outcomes

This project will disseminate and implement evidence-based approaches to measure and improve pain care and outcomes in a sample of 100 hospitals across the United States. The program is unique in forging a partnership with the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators® (NDNQI). The research team will replicate the NDNQI data collection strategy for pressure ulcers and collect data regarding pain care and outcomes at the patient level across multiple hospitals and units on a given day. The team will finalize and implement a set of pain quality indicators (PQI) within the NDNQI based on their previous INQRI work to develop Pain Care Quality measures. This interdisciplinary team is led by Susan Beck, Ph.D. and Nancy Dunton, Ph.D.
