"This study was commissioned by ACT Health to inform future policy decisions on managing nursing workload in the Territory. The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is the smallest of Australia‟s six states and two territories. However it has the highest population density and is the only state or territory without a sea border. The health needs of its residents are served by only two public hospitals, The Canberra Hospital and Calvary Public Hospital, as well as three private hospitals ... The focus of this study was on medical and surgical nursing wards/units, the operational unit where the work of patient care and cure happens, where innovation can be most readily introduced with real consequences for patients and staff, and where the relationship between hospital resources and patient outcomes needs to be studied."--Executive summary.
