Patient choice, patient outcomes and nurse staffing

26 July 2006
Discussion paper developed after a number of patient organisations were invited to a seminar about the impact of financial deficits, particularly on the nursing workforce, the implications for service users and patient choice.

People generally think of nursing, the impact of nursing, and the essence of nursing care to be kindness, dignity, general care. Nurses have general impact on clinical outcomes and that is generally not known in public circles.
