This study examines the value of Kitson's (1991) Therapeutic Nursing Function Indicator (TNFI) as a predictor of the quality of nursing care in hospital wards.
The TNFI was updated and modified for use in medical and surgical as well as elderly care wards, and was administered to the sister and deputy of 11 wards.
Kitson's Therapeutic Nursing Function Matrix (TNFM), which assesses the quality of self-care activities (more precisely, the level of therapeutic nursing), was administered to patients in the first nine wards and was tested for inter-rater reliability.
Acceptable reliability was achieved for identification of activities.
However, correlations between activity scores were low, although statistically significant.
