NR451 Week 3 Capstone Project Milestone 1: Practice Issue and Evidence Summary Guidelines

 

CapstoneProject Milestone 1:

Practice Issue and EvidenceSummary Guidelines

Purpose

 

Clear identification of the practice issue is the first step in evidence-based nursing. Next, the evidence is reviewed to determine the best intervention to change practice outcomes. Completion of the milestone will include identification of the practice issue using the ACE Star Model of Knowledge Transformation and a review of the evidence that will support an intervention that will change outcomes. The evidence summary will be conducted through the ‘breaking down’ of a systematic review on your topic for your change project.

 

Course Outcomes

 

This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

  • CO4: Develops and outlines a scientific, systematic decision-making process to integrate critical thinking with clinical judgment to assure safe and effective outcomes. (PO #4)

 

  • CO8: Selects evidence for best practice when planning professional nursing care for individuals, families, aggregates, and communities. (PO #8)

  1. Citations and Referencesmust be included to support the information within each topic area. Refer to the APA manual, Chapter 7, for examples of proper reference format. In-text citations are to be noted for all information contained in your paper that is not your original idea or thought. Ask yourself, “How do I know this?” and then cite the source. Scholarly sources are expected, which means using peer-reviewed journals and credible websites.
  2. Tables and Figures may be added as appropriate to the project. They should be embedded within the body of the paper (see your APA manual for how to format and cite). Creating tables and figures offers visual aids to the reader and enhances understanding of your literature review and design for change.

Title

Your Name

Chamberlain College of Nursing

NR451 RN Capstone Course

Term and Year

 

 

Your title here

This paragraph(s) is to introduce the paper. State the problem and potential solutions backed by evidence. Briefly, introduce the nursing focused plan. Remember this is a scholarly APA assignment so you cannot use first person. Remember also that you will keep all the bolded headings and just remove the non-bolded content when you start your paper.

 

Change Model Overview

 

In this first paragraph, provide an overview of the ACE Star model Evidence-Based Practice Process. Feel free to state why nurses should use this model as a guide to facilitate change. Under each of the second level headers listed below, you now link your identified topic to the ACE Star model EBP Process.

 

Define the Scope of the EBP

 

Restate your practice issue. Why is this a problem? Give basic statistics and information to back the scope of the problem at your facility/work area. How does this problem impact healthcare on a broader scale?

 

Stakeholders

 

You will be the leader of the team since this is your project. Who will you also include in your team? Make sure you choose relevant stakeholders. You should have no more than eight members. Do not list your team members by name but instead by position (pharmacists, charge nurse, etc.).

 

Determine Responsibility of Team Members

 

Why are the members chosen important to your project? What are their roles?NRS 451V Nursing Leadership and Management Entire Course Assignments

 

Evidence

 

Conduct internal/external search for evidence. What type of evidence did you find in addition to you Evidence Summary? EBP guidelines? Quality improvement data? Position statements? Clinical Practice Guidelines?  Briefly discuss the strength of this research. This is not where you describe the results of your studies. This is done in the following steps.

Summarize the Evidence

In this section, you need to synthesize the information from the systematic review article. What are some of the evidence-based interventions you discovered in your Evidence Summary that do you plan to use?Be sure and cite all of your references, in proper APA format, from any and all articles into this one paragraph.

 

 

Develop Recommendations for ChangeBased on Evidence

 

 

What is your recommendation based on the research? Ideally, you will have found enough support in your evidence to proceed with implementing your pilot program.

 

Translation

 

Action Plan

 

You have not implemented your project yet, therefore, this section will be hypothetical. Develop your plan for implementation. What are the specific steps you will take to implement your pilot study?  What is the timeline for your plan? Make sure you include a plan for evaluation of outcomes and method to report the results.

 

Process, Outcomes Evaluation and Reporting

 

What are the desired outcomes? How will they be measured? How will you report the results to the key stakeholders?NRS 451V Nursing Leadership and Management Entire Course Assignments

 

Identify Next Steps

 

How will you implement the plan on a larger scale? Will this be applicable to other units or the facility as a whole? What will you do to ensure that the implementation becomes permanent?

 

Disseminate Findings

How will you communicate your findings internally (within your organization) and externally (to others outside of your organization)?

 

Conclusion\

 

Provide a clear and concise summary. Review the key aspects of the problem as well as the change model. Be sure to include important aspects of the five points of the ACE Star change model EBP process and ways to maintain the change plan.

An Ethical Dilemma (graded)

 

Nurses face many ethical issues on a daily basis. Consider the following scenario:

Your unit has team nursing. As luck would have it, you and your best friend, Jill, are paired as a team this shift. Jill is a new nurse so you feel this is a great opportunity to take her under your wing a bit and show her the ropes. It is a busy shift and you administered Mr. Smith his insulin dose based on the sliding scale before lunch. You chart your medication administration and continuing caring for your patients. An hour later, Jill comes to you terrified because she forgot to chart the insulin she gave Mr. Smith and realized that you also gave the medication. She rushed to take his blood sugar and it was 115. Mr. Smith felt fine and was eating a candy bar his family had snuck in for him. No harm done, in fact he probably needed the extra insulin to compensate for the candy bar he wasn’t supposed to have, Jill explained. Jill begs you not to report this since she is still on probation. She says that she has learned her lesson and since nothing bad happened, why does anyone need to know?

What would you do in this situation? Apply ethical principles to explain the rationale for your decision making process.

Change can be difficult to implement. Now that you are almost finished with your change project, if you were to implement your project in your clinical practice, what type of resistance do you expect from staff? List at least three ways that you can lessen the resistance you may encounter to help ensure the success of your project.
