Summary Measuring and linking patient outcomes to nursing intervention is an important task that has professional, financial and political ramifications. The importance and complexity of measuring patient outcomes accurately should not be overlooked, as there are a number of emergent factors that influence this process. These include the turbulent context of practise, variations in care due to the large number of health professionals, individual patient characteristics impacting on outcomes, determining appropriate nursing outcome measures, nursing's lack of autonomy within the system and difficulties experienced while trying to link patient outcomes to nursing interventions. So that the results reflect reality, it is important for researchers in the field to take note and consider these factors when measuring patient outcomes. The present article aimed to examine and discuss a number of these factors as they relate to the evaluation of patient care.
