Automating ward evaluations: a tentative first step

L G Moseley, D M Mead

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Auditing nursing practice is a time-consuming, error-prone task. Feedback to individuals is highly desirable but usually is not offered. This is particularly difficult in large-scale studies. In this study of 654 wards a new method was attempted. Structured questionnaires were analysed by a computer program and feedback reports generated automatically. Informal evaluations by the initial recipients are positive and the method seems worthy of future development.
