RFI: Workload Measurement Nursing

Dear Colleagues,

I am contacting you with a request for information related to a study
(literature review) on "Workload Measurement in Determining Staffing
Levels" for nursing staff, which I am currently carrying out for the
International Council of Nurses.

My question is if you kindly could provide information on this issue
regarding your country or the country you are currently working re-

I am interested in information on:
(1) description of tools/ instruments or systems currently used to
measure nursing workload and how they are used / implemented in
determining staffing levels.

(2) evaluation of / experiences with these tools or systems: are
they reflecting the reality and practice, are they satisfying,
what deficiencies or weak points are observed, what good prac-
tices are known and what recommendations are given from experts?

While the focus of the review is on nursing professions, materials on
workload measurement tools for other professions such as physicians,
physiotherapists, social workers, firemen or police are also welcome
for comparison.

I would be very grateful for any information, be it articles, pub-
lished or unpublished studies, "grey" literature, hints for relevant
websites, or other contact persons.

Thank you in advance for your kind response and your interest.

With best regards,
