submit a summary of six of your articles on the discussion board. Discuss one strength and one weakness to each of these six articles on why they may or may not provide sufficient evidence for your practice change.
DQ 2 : Name two difference methods for evaluating evidence. Compare and contrast these two methods
Review the PICO(T) resources listed in the topic readings.
Formulate a PICOT statement using the PICOT format used in the assigned readings. The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your Capstone Project.
In a paper of 500-750 words, clearly identify the clinical problem (from your Topic 1 approved Change Proposal) and how it can result in a positive patient outcome.
Make sure to address the following on the PICOT statement:
1. Evidence-Based Solution
2. Nursing Intervention
3. Patient Care
4. Health Care Agency
5. Nursing Practice
Recall that a PICOT starts with a designated patient population in a particular clinical area and identifies clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care. The intervention should be an independent, specified nursing change intervention. The intervention cannot require a provider prescription or equipment change. Include a comparison to a patient population not currently receiving the intervention, and specify the timeframe needed to implement the change process.
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
DQ 1 After discussion with your mentor, name one financial, one quality, and one clinical aspect that needs to be taken into account for developing the evidence-based practice project. For each aspect, explain how your proposal will directly and indirectly impact each of the aspects.
DQ 2 Access and review the “Capstone Project Topic Selection, Rationale, and Approval” assignment from Topic 1. Now that you have completed a series of assignments that have led you into the active project planning and development stage for your project, take your discussion a step further and briefly describe your proposed solution to address the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need. How has this changed since you first envisioned it, and what led to your current perspective and direction?
An implementation plan prepares students to apply the research they have identified and vetted to the problem or issue they have identified for their Capstone Change Proposal Project. A literature review enables students to map out and move into the active planning and development stages of the Project.
In this assignment students will develop a 750-1,000-word literature review in which to synthesize what is known and unknown about the Project issue selected. Students will use the information from the PICOT Statement and Evaluation Table assignments prior in the course to develop a planned approach to implementing the evidence-based practice solution. The underlying purpose of this assignment is to analyze how the current research supports the PICOT, and to identify what is known and what is not known in the evidence, providing a logical, constructive argument.
Include the following sections:
1. Title page
2. Introduction section
3. A comparison of research questions
4. A comparison of sample populations
5. A comparison of the limitations of the study
6. A conclusion section, incorporating recommendations for further research
