    Abstract

    Aim: This study aimed to develop a ward-based writing coach programme to improve the quality of patient information in nursing documentation. Background: Omissions in the patient information make nursing notes an unreliable source for care planning. Strategies to improve the quality of nursing documentation have been unsuccessful. An education programme, with one-to-one coaching in the clinical environment, was tested.
