This text is the only comprehensive and accessible collection of validated and reliable instruments for care measurement in clinical and educational nursing and health professions research.
These measurements address quality of care; patient, client, and nurse perceptions of caring; and caring behaviors, abilities, and efficacy. The third edition is updated throughout and includes a comprehensive literature review of the research and measurement of caring. It features several new tools and instruments, and updates all established tools and instruments to reflect how each has been used in the past ten years. The third edition also presents a new chapter on assessing and measuring caring in digital/cyberspace settings, discusses global developments in assessing and measuring caring, and provides an updated section dedicated to the challenges and future directions of caring measurement.
Each tool/instrument is presented according to a standard framework for ease of use. This framework includes a description of each tool/instrument and its origin, its development and use, key citations for its use, and its theoretical origin and access.
