The third edition of this award-winning volume has been updated to provide the most current knowledge, perspectives, and research on assessing outcomes of APN care. It addresses not only the health outcomes of APN practice but the economic impact of APN care as well.

Chapters discuss outcome measurement in all areas of advance practice nursing, including identifying outcomes in specialty areas and in community and ambulatory settings. The text provides detailed descriptions of how to conduct outcomes assessments, how to locate the most current instruments and measures for APN assessment, and perspectives on international initiatives in APN assessment. Examples of outcomes studies at the DNP level are culled from the most current published projects.

Written by expert practitioners, educators, and researchers in APN outcomes assessment, this book will provide the essential information to help all APNs-regardless of specialty area or practice setting-to increase their skill level in designing outcomes-focused clinical research, selecting instruments, and analyzing outcomes data as critical components of their professional practice role.

The third edition is completely updated and expanded to include:

- A new chapter on assessing outcomes at the DNP level through data gained from the most current research
- An expanded literature review on outcomes measurement research
- Guidelines for selecting assessment instruments
- Perspectives on an international initiative for the development of an APN research data collection toolkit
