Research output: Book/ReportReports


This study evaluates the reliability and validity of ratings of nursing home compliance with 31 Australian government standards. While doubts are raised about some standards, in general very strong support is found for the reliability of the standards and limited tests also support their validity. In all, the data are confronted with 19 reliability and validity tests.
