standard

 [stan´dard]
something established as a measure or model to which other similar things should conform. There are three types of standards in health care: structure, process, and outcome standards. Structure refers to evaluation of the setting in which care is rendered and the resources that are available. Process refers to evaluation of the actual activities carried out by the care giver. Outcome refers to evaluation of the results of activities in which the nurse has been involved (what the result is for the patient).
s's of practice a set of guidelines that identifies the content of practice and serves as a model to guide care towards excellence.

1. Something that serves as a basis for comparison; a technical specification or written report by experts.
2.

standard

Etymology: OFr, estandart
1 n, an evaluation that serves as a basis for comparison for evaluating similar phenomena or substances, such as a standard for the preparation of a pharmaceutic substance or a standard for the practice of a profession.
2 n, a pharmaceutic preparation or a chemical substance of known quantity, ingredients, and strength that is used to determine the constituents or the strength of another preparation.
3 adj, of known value, strength, quality, or ingredients.
4 n, predetermined criteria used to provide guidance in the operation of a health care facility to ensure high-quality performance by the personnel. standardization, n., standardize, v.

standard

EBM
In a clinical trial, a criterion or specification established by authority or consensus for:
(1) Measuring performance or quality; and
(2) Specifying conventions that support interchange of common materials and information.

CDISC standards support the exchange of clinical data at syntactic and semantic levels.

bacteriological standard of meat
the standard bacterial count of meat beyond which local legislation forbids the sale or use of meat. The international standard is for <107/g of meat and that Salmonella spp. should not be present in more than one of five 25 g samples, all held at 95°F (35°C) or 68°F (20°C) for chilled meat.
standard bicarbonate
in blood gas analysis this is the plasma level of bicarbonate, under specified conditions, which eliminates the influence of respiration on the values obtained.
standard deviation
a measure of the dispersal of a random variable; the square root of the average squared deviation from the mean. For data that have a normal distribution about 68% of the data points fall within one standard deviation from the mean and 95% fall within two standard deviations. Symbol is σ.
standard error
the standard deviation of an estimate.
standard error of mean
the sampling variability of the mean.
standard international (SI) units
see Table 3.
standard population
a population not yet divided into classes; the population against which each of its constituent classes can be compared.
standard Salmonella pullorum strains
strains that contain only small amounts of 122 antigen.

The standard error of estimate was larger for the allometric line of genitalia than the median for nongenitalia in 11 of 12 genitalic traits ([[Chi].
1985) have suggested that psychophysical estimates of covariation strength may be influenced by data characteristics such as the standard error of estimate (or error variance about the regression line), slope, and variance of the independent variable per se.
The standard error of estimate (sy/x) is a standard deviation that measures the scatter of the observed values around the regression line and sy/x is found to be 0.
The 10 procedural steps are the following: (1) identify performance indicator and extraneous factor to be measured; (2) calculate correlation between the performance indicator and the extraneous variable; (3) calculate the slope of the regression equation; (4) calculate intercept [a] of the regression equation; (5) calculate the predicted value of the performance indicator [y] given an extraneous variable value [x]; (6) calculate standard error of estimate [See]; (7) calculate standard error of forecast [Sef]; (8) calculate a confidence interval around the predicted value; (9) calculate monetary benefits of the training program; and (10) calculate ROI.
