Abstract EN

The quality and safety of nursing care vary from one service to another.

We have only very limited information on the quality and safety of nursing care in outpatient settings, an expanding area of practice.

Our aim in this study was to make available, from the scientific literature, indicators potentially sensitive to nursing that can be used to evaluate the performance of nursing care in outpatient settings and to integrate those indicators into the theoretical framework of Dubois et al.

(2013).

We conducted a scoping review in three databases (CINAHL, MEDLINE, and EMBASE) and the bibliographies of selected articles.

From a total of 116 articles, we selected 22.

The results of our study not only enable that framework to be extended to ambulatory nursing care but also enhance it with the addition of five new indicators.

Our work offers nurses and managers in ambulatory nursing units indicators potentially sensitive to nursing that can be used to evaluate performance.

For researchers, it presents the current state of knowledge on this construct and a framework with theoretical foundations for future research in ambulatory settings.

This work opens an unexplored field for further research.
