In infusion nursing practice, outcomes research involves identifying and measuring outcomes sensitive to, and most consistent with, current infusion nursing practice and theory. This article discusses what outcomes should be measured in infusion nursing; how to frame the study problem, develop a working research question, and define study variables; and how to design the method for sampling, variable measurement, data collection, and proposed data analysis. The article concludes with a discussion of how to apply research components using retrospective descriptive-comparative and prospective experimental approaches, and details how to write up the final research report.
