Measuring patient outcomes is arguably the most important job of the advanced practice nurse (APN)-yet conducting outcome assessment and selecting the appropriate instruments for measuring outcome continue to be a challenge, even to the best in the field. 
This newly revised edition provides APNs with up-to-date resources and examples of outcome measures, tools, and methods that can be used to expand the APN's understanding of outcome assessment. The chapters outline numerous examples of practice-based outcome assessments, with detailed descriptions of how an assessment is conducted, as well as guidelines for identifying the proper instruments for measuring outcome. 
Written for nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, certified nurse midwives, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and graduate level APNs, this newly updated edition serves as an invaluable resource for APNs, regardless of specialty area of practice or practice setting.
