Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This pilot study compared the implementation of the innovative dedicated education unit (DEU) clinical model on quality of care with the traditional clinical model using missed nursing care as a quality indicator. A university and academic medical center partnered to conduct this quasiexperimental study, which is the first to use missed nursing care as a quality indicator when assessing transition to the DEU model. Evidence suggests that quality of care was maintained during DEU implementation.
