Towards a conceptual model of 'quality care'

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A model of the multi-dimensional concept 'Quality Care' was constructed from data generated inductively from a concept analysis (Attree, 1993). The construction of a model was intended to assist in the clarification of this complex and abstract concept, and permit the exploration of postulated relationships between the elements. The theoretical model could also be used to construct more acceptable and credible measures which would adequately represent the multiple dimensions and perspectives of 'Quality Care'. It was anticipated that attainment of these initial theoretical stages would form a basis for the development of nursing theory and research relating to 'Quality Care'.
