The relation between quality improvement and science is central in this contribution on quality improvement of nursinq care of the elderly. It is set out how research methods can be used for assessing nursing care models and generalizing their results. This is done on the basis of a concrete example, namely the research and development project 'Rural elder outreach program'. In this project, which is under the direction of the author, a nursing care model has been developed for the benefit of a vulnerable high risk group of old people in Virginia, U.S.A. An attempt is also made to assess the model that has been developed, by means of an extended multidisciplinary research program founded both scientifically and conceptually. This project is financed by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the National Institute of Mental Health, Rockville, Maryland, U.S.A.
