Data are plain facts. When data are processed, organized, structured, or presented in a given context to be useful, they are called information. Pieces of information can be used in an analysis of a problem, such as the diagnosis of a health problem. Data is critical to add value to palliative nursing. It can demonstrate quality and effectiveness. Palliative APRNs need to understand the use of data and its use to promote quality palliative care in the clinical, educational, and research realms. This chapter reviews the type of data that is helpful for clinical practice, program development, and quality.
