sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice..
Describe a Significant Clinical Issue (graded, 25 points)
In Unit 7, you will produce a group project based upon your assigned topic located in your team collaboration tab. Please review the current literature and provide an article that relates to your assigned topic.
Nursing research is a dynamic process that includes multiple phases: defining the research problem; literature review; selecting a theoretical framework; choosing an appropriate design; defining a sampling strategy; collecting and analyzing data; sharing the findings; and using the evidence in practice. “In today’s healthcare systems, evidence-based practice involves integrating the best available evidence with clinical judgment, client values, and consideration of available resources. Evidence-based nursing practice involves rationalizing one’s actions with credible evidence of the effectiveness of those actions to promote optimal patient outcomes” (Ferguson and Day, 2004, p.491)
The Course Outcomes (COs) we will apply in Week 2 include:
• Examine the sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice.
• Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies.
To begin our investigation into research evidence, you will divide into your assigned groups and discuss your “assigned topic” (SCROLL DOWN PAST UNIT DISCUSSION TABS AND YOU WILL FIND YOUR TEAM COLLABORATION TAB).
The guidelines for the Topic Search assignment are located in Unit 2 assignment tab. In this thread, you will address your assigned topic and provide the reference for the articles you located to support the Topic. Please discuss how this article will be beneficial to your assigned topic. Please describe what makes your issue significant: be it the magnitude, the number of people affected, or the gap in knowledge.
My Research Topic assignment is: Discharge Planning- from acute care to next level-Nurses role in discharge planning and how this impacts patient outcomes
Please answer the question carefully, I need at least 150-200 words. Please support with professional article as reference.
Question # 2
Would your problem identified in the Unit 2 discussion question lend itself to a qualitative or quantitative design? What level of evidence (research design) would best address the problem? Explain your answer.
Finding and developing significant problems for research are essential to improving outcomes for patients, families, the profession of nursing, and the health care environment. Research problems focus on topics requiring investigation, which may warrant a change in nursing practice.
The Course Outcomes (COs) we will apply in Unit 3 include:
Examine the sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice.
Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies.
Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and lab significance related to evidence-based practice.
Based upon your individual search and assigned topic, please identify which research methodology best suits your topic search inquiry: qualitative, quantitative, or a mixed method approach. Be sure to give your rationale for your choice and support with literature.
