About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens [with a nurse practitioner and who were a patient overnight in a hospital in the last 12 months and who saw their nurse practitioner afterwards] who reported that their nurse practitioner seemed informed about the care they needed after their hospital stay.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who have a nurse practitioner as their primary care provider and who were a patient overnight in a hospital in the last 12 months and who saw their nurse practitioner afterwards . This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "
yes" by the number of respondents who answered "yes or no" to the question: Did your family doctor or nurse practitioner seem informed and up-to-date about the plan for follow-up care?

Notes

The 2020 edition of the Primary Health Survey (PHS) was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, NBHC had to assess the impact of surveying during the pandemic. Accordingly, advanced statistical analyses were performed to allow for comparison between the results obtained in 2020 and those obtained in previous PHS cycles. Despite these analyses, users are advised to use the PHS 2020 data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other PHS editions.
