AbstractThe purpose of this study was to systematically analyze the body of periodical literature on hospital-based nursing case management. The analysis resulted in the identification and classification of the actions and specific behaviors that make up the nursing interventions performed by nurse case managers who practice within the hospital setting. Content analysis was the research method used to structure an unstructured body of data. The actions and behaviors were classified using the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) taxonomy described earlier. Once this information was tabulated and summarized, inferences were made about the interventions used by nurse case managers in hospital settings.
