Evidence based practice | Nursing homework help

Assignment Practice Scenario
Your Chief Nurse Executive (CNE) recognizes you are pursuing your BSN and has asked you to be a member of the nursing evidence-based practice (NEBP) committee. She has advised the members that the purpose is to conduct nursing research studies involving clinical practice problems. Increasing nurses’ awareness of quality and safety concerns will help develop an attitude of inquiry and asking questions (Sherwood & Barnsteiner, 2017). Baccalaureate nurses “collaborate in problem identification, participate in the process of search, retrieval, and documentation of evidence, and integrate evidence using credible databases and internet resources” (AACN, 2008, pp. 16-17).
The CNE has advised all members of the following areas of quality and safety clinical practice that each committee member needs to consider and choose one as a priority area for conducting a research study. Sources of research problems come from nursing clinical practice (Houser, 2018):
Quality
Safety
Patient satisfaction Patient education
Falls
Non-pharmacological pain management
Errors (any). Examples include:
·  Medication
·  Patient identification
·  Communication
Readmissions Length of stay Costs
Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs). (Any type) Examples include:
·  Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI)
·  Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI)
·  Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP)
·  Surgical Site Infections (SSI)
Sepsis
Discharge Teaching/Coaching Transitions of Care/Level of Care
Pressure Ulcers Skin Integrity
Your CNE has requested that you are to select one area and complete the PPL Worksheet using that topic. The committee will collaborate and decide as a team which nursing clinical problem area will be the priority focus of their next research study. Thank you for your valuable contributions to this important NEBP committee.
