Evidence-Based Practice How would you react if your primary care physician said to you, “I just heard about an interesting new drug that I want to prescribe for you. The pharmaceutical representative told me that it was a really effective medication, but I really have not had the chance to review the research”?

evidence based practice   Writing a clear evidence-based practice (EBP) question using the PICO format is the first step in developing a change in practice. In this Discussion, you will explore the steps involved in EBP and develop a researchable EBP question in the PICO format that addresses a patient quality and safety issue. To prepare for this Discussion, Review the following from this week’s resources: AWE Checklist (Level 4000) Discussion Rubric, provided in the Course Information area This week’s Writing Resources and Program Success Tools (link to e-guide) This week’s articles and media BY DAY 3 Post the following: In this Discussion you will identify three clinical practice problems in your current (or past) practice as a nurse that risk compromise to quality of care and patient safety. You will select one of these problems to clearly define the risk and ask a question using the PICO format. Asking…    read more

evidence-based practice   In Week 2, you examined the importance of evidence-based practice in general as well as the value of consumer involvement. You also explored the benefits and limitations of using evidence-based practices for chronic diseases and conditions at a population level. This week, you will apply insights on evidence-based practice to the specific chronic disease or condition at a population level that you selected for your Final Project. For this Discussion: To Prepare Review the week’s Resources. Conduct a search for evidence-based practices related to your Final Project topic. BY DAY 3 Post a comprehensive explanation of how evidence-based practices might improve population health outcomes for the chronic disease or condition at the population level you selected for your Final Project. Then, explain how evidence-based practices might provide a better return on investment (ROI) for effective prevention and care management for the chronic disease or condition at the…    read more

evidence-based practice   To ensure that an evidence-based practice is working, it is important to evaluate the program routinely. Developing measurable and actionable goals will greatly assist in this process. Taking a step back to look at the progress of the program can be very beneficial in making modifications as needed for ongoing success. Any issues identified do not mean the program is a failure. Instead, it indicates areas that may need attention. In Week 2, you examined the importance of evidence-based practice in general as well as the value of consumer involvement. You also explored the benefits and limitations of using evidence-based practices for chronic diseases and conditions at a population level.

evidence based practice   Qualitative research provides evidence from the individual/family/group/culture perspective. It is vital to understand that life experiences are an important source of evidence. The rich evidence gathered with qualitative research provides an in-depth examination of the human experience and cultural health beliefs of individuals and families. This week, you will be analyzing a qualitative research design including problem, data collection and analysis, and conclusions. BY DAY 3 Post the following: Like Week 3, after viewing the Week 4 Webinar: Critical Appraisal of Quantitative Research, complete the Appraisal Guide: Findings of a Qualitative Study in this week’s resources. Of the questions discussed on the second page of the critique form, titled Credibility, which ones were identified in the article reviewed during the webinar? Describe one of the most serious flaws in this study and why it leaves you wondering if the study findings should be used as evidence in…    read more

evidence based practice   Discussion: Using Evidence-Based Practice Models to Guide Practice Change and Developing a Plan for the Evidence-Based Practice Project Facilities often establish EBP committees who are charged with reviewing the evidence and proposing changes in practice. The committees work together to synthesize plans and engage in activities that will promote EBP in to promote quality care and patient safety. Integral to developing and implementing EBP change are the need to utilize effective communication and leadership skills. The required readings this week provide an overview of different evidence-based models that can be used as guides to conducting evidence-based practice change projects. In the videos for Week 5, an EBP committee discusses the evidence-based steps they used to identify, assess, propose and implement a practice change in their work settings. For this Discussion, you will see a committee as it completes it work. There are two scenarios with the…    read more
