Nursing home culture change (NHCC) aims to change the way care is provided in nursing homes. Valid and reliable measures are needed to evaluate the impact of NHCC on outcomes. The current systematic review provides an overview of instruments designed to measure NHCC and criteria for others to evaluate and choose instruments according to their own purpose. Ten instruments were identified that measure NHCC on an organizational level. Lack of development description hindered their assessment, and studies examining the relationship between NHCC and outcomes are rare. A common limitation of the instruments reviewed was the lack of psychometric testing; thus, their validity and reliability need further exploration.
