What is it about?

The aim of the study was to identify and synthesize the contents and the psychometric properties of the existing instruments measuring home‐based care (HBC) nurses' competencies. The instruments were generally not comprehensive, and the content and structural validity were limited. Nonetheless, the domains, items and approaches to instrument development could be adopted to develop and test a comprehensive competency instrument for home‐based nursing care practice in the future.

Why is it important?

The instruments were often designed for ward‐based care nurses hence a comprehensive and validated home‐based nursing care competency instrument is needed. Nurses, researchers and nursing leaders could consider the competency instruments identified in this review to measure nurses' competencies, while a home‐based nursing care competency scale is being developed.
