Strategy for improving the quality of nursing
Quality improvement relating to nursing can only be achieved if nurses and other care staff are willing and prepared to make the required effort and if management provides the necessary prerequisites.
This places a personal responsibility on the nurse within the team and on management to play an active part in quality improvement in nursing care.
The quality improvement work of the Swedish Society of Nursing is dedicated to improve the quality and safety of health care systems. The strategy for improving the quality of nursing comprises the following components: ethical responsibility, six core competencies, quality improvement work and improvement knowledge, continuous quality improvement and prioritisation, safety, learning and competence, knowledge-based care and its implementation and, finally, the implementation of the strategy, its conditions and objectives.
