Objective: In order to provide an effective method for the comprehensive and scientific evaluation of respiratory rehabilitation nursing, a nursing quality evaluation index system for respiratory rehabilitation was constructed.

Methods: Based on the theory of structure-process-outcome three-dimensional quality model, indexes and weights of respiratory rehabilitation nursing quality evaluation at all levels were determined by using literature review, semi-structured interviews, Delphi method, and Analytic Hierarchy Process.

Results: The response rates of the two rounds consultation were 100% and 93% respectively, and the authority coefficients of experts are 0.872 and 0.922. The coordination coefficients of expert opinions were 0.583, 0.498, 0.407 for the first, second and third-level respectively. The significance test value P was less than 0.01. The final indicator system is constructed with 3 first-level indicators, 9 second-level indicators, and 46 third-level indicators.

Conclusion: The constructed respiratory rehabilitation nursing quality evaluation index system is not only reliable, scientific, comprehensive, and but also with outstanding specialty characteristics. It provides an effective strategy to improve respiratory rehabilitation nursing quality.
