Outcomes sensitive to critical care nurse staffing levels: A systematic review protocol
MetadataShow full item record
Variation in nurse staffing levels have been linked to outcomes such as patient mortality and nurse burnout. However, previous reviews on staffing have either excluded critical care settings or focused on other settings such as acute care. Other reviews have narrowed their scope to include only specific outcomes, such as renal anaemia but it is possible that further patient outcomes may be more appropriate for the ICU setting. This review will therefore identify outcomes sensitive to nurse staffing levels in critical care. The objective of this review is to identify outcomes sensitive to variations in nurse staffing levels in critical care.
