Abstract:

The purposes of this study were to determine the extent to which acute care nurse practitioners (ACNPs) provide patient-centered care (PCC) and to explore the effects of PCC on patients' functional status, self-care ability, and satisfaction with care. A nonexperimental design with repeated measures was used. The sample included 320 patients with acute medical and surgical conditions. Patients perceived that ACNPs provided PCC, operationalized as encouraging patients to participate in care and individualizing care to a moderate extent. Implementation of these PCC components was positively associated with some domains of self-care ability and satisfaction with care. Further investigation of the contribution of PCC to outcomes is recommended.
