Abstract

[Scientific Summary] Background: In 2005 the SDO commissioned three projects under the programme: "Evaluating the nursing, midwifery and health visiting contribution to models of chronic disease management". Theses were awarded to:- University of Hertfordshire with City University: The nursing, midwifery and health visiting contribution to CDM: a whole systems approach (PI S.Kendall).- Kings College, London: A multi-context, multi-method assessment of the contribution of nurses to chronic disease management in England and Wales. (PI A.While).- University of Hertfordshire with UCL: Evaluating the nursing, midwifery and health visiting contribution to models of chronic disease management (PI C.Goodman).Each project is undertaking a systematic approach to searching the literature which has been peer-reviewed and reflects the individual aims and focus of each study. here is the opportunity to integrate the findings from each review to produce a review of reviews which draws out the main themes in the literature and identifies the range and quality of evidence to inform the nursing, midwifery and health visiting contribution to long term conditions. This additional review will not include any new material over and above the material included in each of the supporting research studies but will provide an integration and synthesis.Aims: We are reviewing 3 individual reviews we are not re-evaluating individual pieces of evidence.To undertake a scoping review of 3 reviews of the nursing, midwifery and health visiting contribution to models of chronic disease management.To establish the types of nurse, midwife and health visitor and nursing, midwifery and health visiting activity and contextual settings that have the strongest evidence base for practice.Method: To achieve the above aims we are proposing a four month piece of work which will integrate the methods and findings from the individual reviews. The approach will draw on existing methodologies (e.g EPPI centre 2006, Greenhalgh et al 2004) but will not rely exclusively on any one recognised method. This is because the expected output is unique in that it draws on 3 commissioned reviews that already have defined criteria and objectives. This integration of reviews will tabulate the similarities and differences between the reviews and use thematic content analysis to arrive at the common themes of the reviews. These will be presented in a matrix of process and outcome. A consensus approach to arriving at the key messages from the three reviews will be used. These approaches will be interspersed with two workshops that enable the research teams to come together to discuss the on-going analysis of the three reviews. The final output will be a report that integrates the process and findings from the three reviews and highlights the evidence for effectiveness as well as the gaps in the research.

Additional Information: [1] SDO Project (08/1618/146). [2] This project was commissioned by the NIHR Service Delivery and Organisation (NIHR SDO) programme under the management of the National Coordinating Centre for the Service Delivery and Organisation (NCCSDO) which was based at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). The project was managed by NCCSDO until 31 March 2009. Management of the NIHR Service Delivery and Organisation (SDO) programme and its portfolio of projects transferred to the National Institute for Health Research Evaluations, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre (NETSCC) based at the University of Southampton from 1 April 2009. The final report resulting from this project was reviewed and published by NETSCC. [3] This project was originally commissioned as "The nursing, midwifery and health visiting contribution to CDM: An integration of the literature"and the title change was approved as a result of the editorial review process.
