QualiCare was established in 2004 by Dr. Joanne Duffy PhD, RN, FAAN as a result of the extraordinary number of international requests for the Caring Assessment Tools.©  These questionnaire-type measures were designed to assess the caring behaviors of nurses working in different settings. The Quality-Caring Model,© a middle range theory also developed by Dr. Duffy, provides the foundation for innovative talent development programs, outcomes research, professional practice model integration, and evidence-based practice support.
