Wound management nurse practitioner service: Parameters of practice and patient outcomes

Gibb, Michelle A. (2016) Wound management nurse practitioner service: Parameters of practice and patient outcomes. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis was an in-depth case study investigation of Wound Management Nurse Practitioner service. The Donabedian framework provided a solid foundation for systematic enquiry and guided the mixed methods research approach to examine Wound Management Nurse Practitioner services from multiple perspectives to identify parameters of practice and determine how patient outcomes were assessed. Findings from this research revealed the complex, multifaceted nature of Wound Management Nurse Practitioner services and confirmed the safety and quality of this health service innovation. The methodologically rigorous approach provides an evidence-base to facilitate subsequent research into contextually similar health service models.
