ONRP Summary of Measures

ONRP Summary of Measures - Tables.pdf (186,8 kB)

The tables in the file above provide a list of all of the measures used in ONRP research. In some cases, these measures were constructed for the specific aims of the research grant, in others, the measures were suggested by nurses who participated in focus groups as part of the development of the research.  In still other cases, we used all or portions of previously validated instruments, sometimes making adjustments as necessary to fit the nursing context of our work.
