Research needs to further understand care preferences in home health care. The present quality improvement (QI) study convened an expert panel with key stakeholders. Methods included a modified Delphi card sort to (1) rank the Preferences for Everyday Living Inventory (PELI) categories from most to least important, and (2) select one PELI item from each category most relevant to the setting. The purpose was to determine which items from the Preferences for Everyday Living Inventory nursing home residents (PELI-NH) were most salient to home health care. Categories selected as most important were Health Care Decision Making and Who Delivers Care. Differences were seen across item and preference categories based on stakeholder groups. Results highlight the potential for incorporating the PELI into home health care practice, and the need for additional research.
