Abstract

Aim: Establish linkages between components of the Self- and Family Management Framework and outcomes of the Nursing Outcomes Classification to evaluate the comprehensiveness of outcomes addressing self- and family management in the Nursing Outcomes Classification. Design: Descriptive study. Methods: Experts conducted a six-step process to establish linkages: (1) preliminary mapping of all relevant nursing outcomes to the framework; (2) development of checklists for team members serving as ‘identifiers’ and ‘reviewers’; (3) mapping all relevant nursing outcomes to the framework; (4) final agreement on mapped outcomes; (5) establishment of inter-rater reliability; and (6) discussion of findings with authors of the Self- and Family Management Framework. Results: Three hundred and sixty-three nursing outcomes were identified as related to the management of chronic disease across all components of the framework: outcomes related to patient self-management (n = 336), family functioning (n = 16) and family caregivers (n = 11). Conclusion: The Nursing Outcomes Classification outcomes comprehensively address self-management, and, less so, family functioning, and caregivers. Implications: Established linkages can be used by nurses to track and support patient and family management outcomes across the care continuum. Patient or public contribution: Linking standardized nursing outcomes to the Self- and Family Management Framework can assist in goal setting and measurement of nursing care during chronic disease management. This work can help describe to funders, policy makers and others invested in health care reform the specific contributions of nurses to self- and family management of chronic disease. Impact: This paper demonstrates the linkages between components of the Self- and Family Management Framework and Nursing Outcomes Classification outcomes. The results of this study offer the opportunity to quantify the impact of nursing care and enhance nursing practice for patients with chronic conditions as well as contribute to developing Nursing Outcomes Classification outcomes that consider self-management processes.
