The conservation practice physical effects (CPPE) document provides guidance on how the application of that practice will affect the resources (soil, water, air, plants, animals, energy, and human) and the resource concerns associated with each of those resources. The worksheet that is on the server reflects the best estimate of the effects, either positive or negative, of that practice on the resource concerns.

The study, Economic Costs of Diabetes in the U.S. in 2017, was commissioned by the ADA and addresses the increased financial burden, health resources used, and lost productivity associated with diabetes in 2017. The study includes a detailed breakdown of costs along gender, racial, and ethnic lines, and also includes a breakdown of costs on a state-by-state basis.
This estimate highlights the substantial burden that diabetes imposes on society. Additional components of societal burden omitted from our study include intangibles from pain and suffering, resources from care provided by non-paid caregivers, and the burden associated with undiagnosed diabetes.

Three other studies, not included in the two literature reviews above, have shown interesting relationships between leadership behaviours and various quality outcomes. In a study of New York nursing homes, Hasemann  showed that authoritative leadership was systematically related to higher quality of care while nonauthoritative leadership was not. With authoritative leadership Hasemann  meant leaders who were delegating and telling, related to the followers both flexibly and decisively and made firm and impartial decisions. Nonauthoritarian leaders, by contrast, related to employees on a more personal level and were striving to please the employees and make them happy. Albinsson and Stang , in interviewing 32 experienced nursing home employees about how they thought the leader should function to achieve high quality of care, found that task-oriented behaviour characterized by well-defined leadership, goal formulation and care planning was emphasised as decisive in this regard. In a study at a relatively large Swedish hospital, Sellgren et al.  investigated the difference between staff and nurse managers in their preferences of leadership style for achieving high quality of care. They found that subordinates preferred leaders that took an active and clear leadership role and focused on production-orientated aspects of leadership rather than relationship-orientated aspects.
Even though the majority of the studies in this research field have found that staffing levels and the proportion of registered nurses are significantly related to quality of care, a significant number of studies have not been able to link the two predictors and the specified criterion. For example, Rantz et al.  investigated 92 nursing homes in Missouri and did not find any effect for either staffing levels or staff mix. The study had reliable staffing data and a robust design, with data collected both quantitatively and qualitatively, the latter by two to four days of participating observations at each nursing home. Likewise, Winsløw & Borg  surveyed 7500 care workers in 36 municipalities in Denmark and found no association between increased staffing levels or level of professional training and quality of care provided by the individual care worker. Furthermore, Arling  and Berlowitz  did not find any significant relationship between staffing levels or staff mix and quality of care in their studies. In a Norwegian setting, three studies have investigated the relationship between total staffing levels and quality of care in nursing homes. Two of the studies found no significant relationship [33, 54], while one of the studies found a significant positive effect of increased staffing levels on quality of care . Harsvik et al.  also studied the effect of increased ratios of registered nurses on quality of care; however, they found no significant effect.
From earlier studies in nursing homes we know that organizational characteristics like ownership status, size and care level have effect on the level of quality of care [4, 32, 50, 62, 63]. As all nursing homes included in the present study were nonprofit and both owned and run by the local municipality, the ownership variable was irrelevant. Size and care level are both relevant variables, but due to our limited sample (N = 40) we choose to include only one of them. As size was less correlated with the three quality indexes (r = 0.28 versus r = 0.40), we included care level as a confounder. We additionally controlled for possible interaction effects among the independent variables [50, 64]. The interaction effects were tested separately to limit the degrees of freedom. One significant interaction effect was found between task- and relationship-oriented leadership. The interaction effect was significant in the model with quality of care assessed by relatives only and is therefore not reported.
Another explanation for the lack of effect could be the choice of quality measures used in the study. Arling et al.  suggested that process measures of quality may be more sensitive to staffing than outcome measures. This is because the outcome measures could be influenced by many other factors besides the defined predictors. In the literature review by Castle  40% of the process indicators were found to be positively associated with staffing levels, as compared to 38% of the outcome measures. Yet, Castle  underscored that there was an extreme diversity in the quality indicators examined in the studies and that the type of quality measures may influence the effect of staffing. The majority of the quality of care items in the present study were outcome measures (see Appendix).
At last, it should be emphasized that the results concerning the effects of staffing levels and ratio of registered nurses on quality of care is ambiguous. Even if Castle  found a relationship between the two variables in most of the studies he examined in his literature review, 60% of the quality indicators in those studies were not related to increased staffing levels and 48% of the quality indicators were not related to increased level of registered nurses. Furthermore, the literature review by Spilsbury et al.  concluded that: "...research has produced inconsistent and contradictory results about the link between nurse staffing and quality in nursing homes." (p. 748).
