Framework for National Performance Indicators for Nursing & Midwifery

The development of a Framework for National Performance Indicators for Nursing and Midwifery is one of the priority actions in the Strategy for the CNO’s Office 2015–2017.

A Framework has been developed and its purpose is to:

  1. set out the policy context for the development and use of nursing and midwifery performance indicators (PIs) to demonstrate the relationship between inputs and outcomes/impact;
  2. provide guidance on PIs including clarifying the relationship between Structure, Process, and Outcome PIs; and
  3. ensure that there is a standardised approach to their development, prioritisation, endorsement, implementation, and monitoring.
