During November, 2012, the Flinders University After Hours Nurse Staffing, Work Intensity and Quality of Care project team, in collaboration with the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation, SA Branch (ANMFSA), administered the MISSCARE survey to a sample of 354 nurse/midwife members of ANMFSA. The survey contained 13 demographic questions, 28 questions that explored working conditions, 96 questions concerning missed nursing care (defined as care that is omitted, postponed, or incomplete) and 17 questions concerning perceived reasons care is omitted in the settings in which the nurse/midwives practice. In addition, respondents were asked to add comments of their own concerning nursing care that is missed and why.
