AbstractThe purpose of this study was to examine the context of the provision of home nursing care for patients with congestive heart failure. A modified macroergonomic analysis and design work system analysis was undertaken in two phases with fourteen nurse participants: I) field observations of eight nurses for the collection of data on work elements and II) follow-up telephone interviews with six home care nurses. Open-ended questions were asked after the observations to identify clinical knowledge, policies, and procedures that influenced care decisions and practices. The telephone interviews focused on four different aspects of home health care delivery and were conducted using semi-structured questions. Results of the observations were translated into flowcharts and a summary report. The baseline findings described aspects of home medication management and its relevance to safety, quality of care, communication, and self-management.
