Essentials of Evidence-Based Practice

Order Description
Course Project: Introduction to Course Project
Evidence-based practice in” rel=”nofollow”>involves a great deal more than simply readin” rel=”nofollow”>ing nursin” rel=”nofollow”>ing periodicals on a regular basis. Nurses can take a more proactive approach to evidence-based practice by identifyin” rel=”nofollow”>ing authentic problems and concerns, and then usin” rel=”nofollow”>ing that to guide their in” rel=”nofollow”>inquiries in” rel=”nofollow”>into current research. In this way, nurses can connect the results of relevant research studies to their nursin” rel=”nofollow”>ing practice.
For the Course Project, you identify and apply relevant research to a specific nursin” rel=”nofollow”>ing topic or problem. You begin” rel=”nofollow”>in by formulatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing an answerable question that is relevant to nursin” rel=”nofollow”>ing and evidence-based practice. In later weeks of this course, you contin” rel=”nofollow”>inue the Course Project by conductin” rel=”nofollow”>ing a literature review and then determin” rel=”nofollow”>inin” rel=”nofollow”>ing how the evidence from the literature can be applied to nursin” rel=”nofollow”>ing practice.
Before you begin” rel=”nofollow”>in, review the Course Project Overview document located in” rel=”nofollow”>in this week’s Learnin” rel=”nofollow”>ing Resources.
Note: This Course Project will serve as the Portfolio Assignment for the course. In addition to submittin” rel=”nofollow”>ing portions of this Project in” rel=”nofollow”>in Weeks 2 and 5, you will turn in” rel=”nofollow”>in all three deliverables in” rel=”nofollow”>in Week 10.
Course Project: Part 1—Identifyin” rel=”nofollow”>ing a Researchable Problem
One of the most challengin” rel=”nofollow”>ing aspects of EBP is to actually identify the answerable question.
—Karen Sue Davies
Formulatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing a question that targets the goal of your research is a challengin” rel=”nofollow”>ing but essential task. The question plays a crucial role in” rel=”nofollow”>in all other aspects of the research, in” rel=”nofollow”>includin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the determin” rel=”nofollow”>ination of the research design and theoretical perspective to be applied, which data will be collected, and which tools will be used for analysis. It is therefore essential to take the time to ensure that the research question addresses what you actually want to study. Doin” rel=”nofollow”>ing so will in” rel=”nofollow”>increase your likelihood of obtain” rel=”nofollow”>inin” rel=”nofollow”>ing meanin” rel=”nofollow”>ingful results.
In this first component of the Course Project, you formulate questions to address a particular nursin” rel=”nofollow”>ing issue or problem. You use the PICOT model—patient/population, in” rel=”nofollow”>intervention/issue, comparison, and outcome—outlin” rel=”nofollow”>ined in” rel=”nofollow”>in the Learnin” rel=”nofollow”>ing Resources to design your questions.
To prepare:
• Review the article, “Formulatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the Evidence Based Practice Question: A Review of the Frameworks,” found in” rel=”nofollow”>in the Learnin” rel=”nofollow”>ing Resources for this week. Focus on the PICOT model for guidin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the development of research questions.
• Review the section begin” rel=”nofollow”>innin” rel=”nofollow”>ing on page 71 of the course text, titled, “Developin” rel=”nofollow”>ing and Refin” rel=”nofollow”>inin” rel=”nofollow”>ing Research Problems” in” rel=”nofollow”>in the course text, which focuses on analyzin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the feasibility of a research problem.
• Reflect on an issue or problem that you have noticed in” rel=”nofollow”>in your nursin” rel=”nofollow”>ing practice. Consider the significance of this issue or problem.
• Generate at least five questions that relate to the issue which you have identified. Use the criteria in” rel=”nofollow”>in your course text to select one question that would be most appropriate in” rel=”nofollow”>in terms of significance, feasibility, and in” rel=”nofollow”>interest. Be prepared to explain” rel=”nofollow”>in your rationale.
• Formulate a prelimin” rel=”nofollow”>inary PICO question—one that is answerable—based on your analysis. What are the PICO variables (patient/population, in” rel=”nofollow”>intervention/issue, comparison, and outcome) for this question?
Note: Not all of these variables may be appropriate to every question. Be sure to analyze which are and are not relevant to your specific question.
• Usin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the PICOT variables that you determin” rel=”nofollow”>ined for your question, develop a list of at least 10 keywords that could be used when conductin” rel=”nofollow”>ing a literature search to in” rel=”nofollow”>investigate current research pertain” rel=”nofollow”>inin” rel=”nofollow”>ing to the question.
To complete:
Write a 3- to 4-page paper that in” rel=”nofollow”>includes the followin” rel=”nofollow”>ing:
• A summary of your area of in” rel=”nofollow”>interest, an identification of the problem that you have selected, and an explanation of the significance of this problem for nursin” rel=”nofollow”>ing practice
• The 5 questions you have generated and a description of how you analyzed them for feasibility
• Your prelimin” rel=”nofollow”>inary PICOT question and a description of each PICOT variable relevant to your question
• At least 10 possible keywords that could be used when conductin” rel=”nofollow”>ing a literature search for your PICOT question and a rationale for your selections
By Day 7
Submit your Project. It will also be a component of your Portfolio Assignment for this course, which is due by Day 7 of Week 10.
