dentify a quality improvement opportunity in your organization or practice. In a 1,250-1,500 word paper, describe the problem or issue and propose a quality improvement initiative based on evidence-based practice. Apply “The Road to Evidence-Based Practice” process, illustrated in Chapter 4 of your textbook, to create your proposal. Include the following: Provide an overview of the problem and the setting in which the problem or issue occurs. Explain why a quality improvement initiative is needed in this area and the expected outcome. Discuss how the results of previous research demonstrate support for the quality improvement initiative and its projected outcomes. Include a minimum of three peer-reviewed sources published within the last 5 years, not included in the course materials or textbook, that establish evidence in support of the quality improvement proposed. Discuss steps necessary to implement the quality improvement initiative. Provide evidence and rationale to support your answer. Explain how the quality improvement initiative will be evaluated to determine whether there was improvement. Support your explanation by identifying the variables, hypothesis test, and statistical test that you would need to prove that the quality improvement initiative succeeded.

Implications of an Evidence-Based Project

Following the implementation and evaluation of an evidence-based project, it is critical to examine the overarching implications of the findings. In some instances, you may be surprised to discover an implication you had not anticipated. When that is the case, what do you do with the information?

Consider the following example: An intervention is implemented that, according to the evidence, should give critical care nurses greater access to relevant, high-quality patient data. The intervention uses newly developed monitors to provide an abundance of data on patients’ vital signs. The monitors perform the desired function, but the findings reveal that nurses are encountering a high number of false alarms and they feel stressed by various challenges related to the monitors. For the DNP-prepared nurse, this situation should attract careful attention and raise questions of what to do in response.

In this Discussion, you and your colleagues address the implications of evidence-based projects, including those implications that may have been unexpected. This form of deep analysis is essential for promoting practice changes that are beneficial and sustainable.

To prepare:

  • Consider      the outcomes of your DNP Project or other evidence-based projects with which      you have been involved. Were your findings as anticipated? What unexpected      outcomes, if any, arose?
  • Apply      the concepts you have studied in previous courses to the data you gathered      for your DNP Project or for other evidence-based projects. Consider social,      political, technological, and financial factors as well as factors related      to quality and your area of specialty.
  • How      does your analysis of the project outcomes inform the discussion and      implications of your DNP Project? What impact could your findings have as      they ripple out through multiple systems?
  • Have      you identified any ethical implications that require attention? If so,      what are they?

By tomorrow Wednesday 7/03/19 at 2 pm, write a minimum of 550 words in APA format with at least three references. Include the level one headers as numbered below:

Post a cohesive response that addresses the following:

1) Discuss the implications of your DNP Project outcomes or the outcomes of other evidence-based practice projects.

2) Integrate concepts from previous courses to explain the significance of your findings and be sure to address ethical implications.
