  • Description
    [Excerpt from author] Background: Most studies examining primary nursing focus on outcome variables such as enhanced patient and staff satisfaction with care, perceived autonomy and quality of care, whereas only limited research has examined processes of implementing and maintaining primary nursing. In addition, the few studies that have explored process variables discuss only direct relationships between the design of the primary nursing care-delivery system, process and nurse outcomes, and disregard how such variables interact. Aim: This study sought to address previous inconsistent findings about the impact of primary nursing care-delivery models on the performance of nurses by incorporating the moderating role of supportive management practices.
