This quality improvement (QI) study convened an expert panel to further understand care preferences in home health care. Participants used a modified Delphi card sort to rank Preferences for Everyday Living Inventory-Nursing Home (PELI-NH) categories from most to least important, and select one PELI item from each category most relevant to home health care. Results showed that the most salient categories were: Health Care Decision Making and Who Delivers Care. Differences appeared across item and preference categories based on stakeholder groups. Results highlight the potential for incorporating the PELI into home health care practice.
