I am currently conducting a study looking at the effectiveness of the Acute Care Nurse Practitioner role at St. Paul’s Hospital. I follow a few patients a day on the ward and physicians see the rest of the patients. This creates a good opportunity to do a randomized trial looking at patient outcomes between the two different care providers. I am investigating length of stay, medication adherence, follow-up attendance, satisfaction and post-operative complications in both groups.
