NR 451 Complete Course All Discussions And All Capstone Project Milestone
NR 451 Week 1

Assessing Need for Change (graded)
Think about a problem in your clinical practice. Are the satisfaction scores in your unit low? Does your unit have a higher than average infection rate? What is a problem you see in your clinical practice? What are some of the possible solutions? Why is it important to evaluate the need for change and not just stick with the “it’s the way we always have done it” mentality?

Class, you may begin posting in this TD on Sunday, May 3, 2015 for credit

Nurse’s Role in EBP (graded)
Evidence based practice dates back to Florence Nightingale, yet it took a long time for nurses to conduct nursing research. Why is it important for nurses to have their own body of knowledge? Give a specific example of how bedside nurses contribute to nursing research?

NR 451 Week 2

Forming the PICO Question (graded)
Form a PICO question that you will use for your change project. Include each element of the PICO question. How did you develop this question? Why is it important to your clinical practice?

Appraisal of Evidence (graded)
When reviewing a journal article, how do you best determine its credibility and reliability? Why is it important to determine the strength of evidence and how does that affect your implementation of the results into clinical practice?

NR 451 Week 3

Feasibility of your Capstone Project (graded)
Now that you have identified your capstone project. What is the cost involved to implement your project? Remember that cost isn’t always just money but also time and resources (both tangible and intangible). Will the initial cost pay off in the long run with improved outcomes?

Communication Errors (graded)
Have you ever played the telephone game when you were younger? Communication can take on a life of its own and the content can often be distorted over time. Give an example in your clinical practice where miscommunication was the root cause of an error. How could this communication error have been prevented?

NR 451 Week 4

Patterns of Nursing Care (graded)
Your lesson this week discussed patterns of nursing care delivery. In your opinion, what is the most effective nursing care delivery model and why? What are the advantages and disadvantages of your chosen nursing care delivery model? Give specific clinical examples.

Discussion of Articles (graded)
Discuss the two articles that you read from the Patient Safety and Quality: An Evidence-based Handbook for Nurses website. Give the title and the URL address for each article. How is the information in each article applicable to your practice?

NR 451 Week 5

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.

Core Competencies for Nurses (graded)
Explore the website for the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) initiative at http://www.qsen.org. How can these competencies for nurses be implemented into the workplace or professional nursing setting if you are not currently working?

NR 451 Week 6

Implementing Change Despite Resistance (graded)
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.

Workplace Safety (graded)
Select an American Nurses Association (ANA) publication on workplace safety from the ANA. Search the American Nurses Association (ANA) website for workplace safety (http://www.nursingworld.org/MainMenuCategories/WorkplaceSafety/Healthy-Work-Environment and select a publication on workplace safety. Review the document (publication), include the URL, and discuss implications for you and your work setting.

NR 451 Week 7

Healthcare Policy (graded)
Describe a recent health care policy and discuss it’s implication to your personal clinical practice or health care as a whole. Why is it important for nurses to be aware of health care policy?

Healthcare Economics (graded)
Health care costs are on the rise. What is an example of wasted health care dollars in your clinical practice and how do you propose improving the utilization of these dollars?

Capstone Project Milestone #1:
PICO and Evidence Appraisal Guidelines
Purpose
Clear identification of the problem or opportunity is the first step in evidence-based nursing. This first milestone offers two tools to assist in the identification and gathering of evidence to link the problem, proposed intervention, and desired outcomes. Completion of the milestone will include identification of the problem or concern using the PICO format and an evidence appraisal to find evidence to support an intervention that will change the outcomes.
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)
Due Date
Milestone #1 consists of the completion of one worksheet that contains two parts (i.e., the PICO worksheet and the evidence appraisal worksheet). Submit the file with the two worksheets completed to the Dropbox by Sunday, 11:59 p.m. MT at the end ofWeek 2.
Points
Milestone #1 is worth 175 points (75 points for the PICO worksheet and 100 points for the evidence appraisal worksheet).
Directions
1. Read this document including the grading rubrics below.
2. Download the PICO/Evidence Appraisal worksheets form from Doc Sharing. Consider what is the nursing problem or issue that you have uncovered. Make sure it is related to nursing, i.e., one that a nurse can solve independently. Do not select a medical problem that is dependent upon a medical professional to resolve. Completion of PICO worksheet will offer a tool for your literature search.
3. For the evidence appraisal worksheet, find AT LEAST FOURsources to support the need for change and the potential intervention you have selected to solve the problem. Three of these sources must be peer-reviewed articles while one can be a reliable professional source.
4. Submit the completed PICO/Evidence Appraisal worksheet to the Week 2 Dropbox.

Capstone Project Milestone #1:
PICO and Evidence Appraisal Worksheets
PICO Worksheet
Your Name:
Date:
Your Instructor’s Name:
Purpose: To identify a problem or concern that nursing can change and develop a PICO question to guide the change project.
Directions: Use the form below to complete the PICO assignment in Milestone #1. This includes filling in the table with information about your research question and your PICO elements.
Step 1: Select the key PICO terms for searching the evidence. Clearly define your PICO question. List each element P (problem, population, or problem), I (intervention), C (Comparison with other treatment/current practice), and O (Desired outcome). Is the potential solution something for which you (as nurse or student) can find a solution through evidence research? Look in your book for guidelines to developing your PICO question.
Step 2: Identify the problem. What have you noticed in your work or school environment that isn’t achieving the desired patient or learning outcomes? What needs to change in nursing, what can you change with the support of evidence in the literature? Describe the problem or practice issue that you want to research. What is your practice area; clinical, education, or administration? (This is NOT where you will list your PICO question)
Step 3: How was the practice issues identified? How did you come to know this was a problem in your clinical practice? Review the listed concerns and check all that apply.
Step 4: What evidence must be gathered? Everyone should have a literature search. However, what other sources of reliable information will be helpful for your particular question?
Step 5: What terms will you use in order to make sure that your search is wide enough to obtain required information but narrow enough to keep it focused? What databases will you search? How will you narrow your search if needed?

Evidence Appraisal Worksheet
Your Name:
Date:
Your Instructor’s Name:
Purpose: To find evidence to support an intervention that will change the outcomes.
Directions: Type your search question below. Find AT LEAST FOUR sources to support the need for change and the potential intervention you have selected to solve the problem. At least three of your sources must be peer-reviewed articles. The forth source could be another peer-reviewed article or a reliable, credible source. Look in your text for ideas of other sources that can be used. Using the table below, insert and describe your four chosen resources.
Step 1: APA Reference for the article. You will need to list the reference for the source in APA format. Be careful when using built-in APA formats and library citations. They may not be in APA format. Refer to Chapter 7 of your APA manual.
Step 2: Type of Source. If your source is a research article, you will need to ensure that it is a peer review article. You need at least three peer-reviewed articles for your project. If your article is a non–research source, then you will need to list what type of source it is; systematic review, clinical practice guidelines, organizational experience, or individual expert opinion/case study/literature review. You may only use ONE non-research source.
Step 3: Strength of Research. Refer to page 238-240 for research evidence and page 242-244 for non-research evidence. While you do not need to assign a level for each study, you will assign a quality of evidence (high, good, or low/major flaw) and should discuss the study using some of the elements that are discussed in the appraisal forms. For example, Research evidence: was the sample size adequate? Was there a controlled group? Was it a randomized study? Were results clearly stated? Was the conclusion based on the results? Were study limitations discussed? Not all of these elements need to be discussed, but you should discuss this information to determine if the strength of the evidence is HIGH, GOOD, or LOW/MAJOR FLAW.
Step 4: Brief Description of the Research. In this section, you will summarize the source in your own words. How does this information apply to your project? What are the results of the source? What are their recommendations?

CO1: Applies the theories and principles of nursing and related disciplines to individuals, families, aggregates, and communities from entry to the healthcare system through long-term planning. (PO #1)
CO2: Proposes leadership and collaboration strategies for use with consumers and other healthcare providers in managing care and/or delegating responsibilities for health promotion, illness prevention, health restoration and maintenance, and rehabilitative activities. (PO #2)
DUE DATE
Milestone #2 consists of the proposal for your Design for Change Capstone Project. Submit this Milestone to the Dropbox by the end of Week 4.
POINTS
Milestone #2 is worth 225 points.
DIRECTIONS
1. Create a proposal for your Design for Change Capstone Project. Open the template in Doc Sharing. You will include the information from Milestone #1, your PICO question, and evidence appraisal, as you compose this proposal. Your plan is to convince your management team of a nursing problem you have uncovered and you feel is significant enough to change the way something is currently practiced.
2. The format for this proposal will be a paper following the Publication manual of APA 6th edition.
3. The paper is to be four- to six-pages excluding the Title page and Reference page.
4. As you organize your information and evidence, include the following topics.
a. Introduction: Write an introduction but do not use “Introduction” as a heading in accordance with the rules put forth in the Publication manual of the American Psychological Association (2010, p. 63). Introduce the reader to the plan with evidence-based problem identification and solution.
b. Change Plan: Write an overview using the John Hopkins Nursing EBP Model and Guidelines (2012)
i. Practice Question
ii. Evidence
iii. Translation
c. Summary
5. Citations and References must 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.
6. 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.
Change Model Overview
In this first paragraph, provide an overview of the John Hopkins Nursing 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 y
.our identified topic to the John Hopkins EBP Process.
Practice Question
Step 1: Recruit Interprofessional Team
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)
Step 2: Develop and Refine the EBP Question
Restate your question. Include the PICO elements but make sure you write them in paragraph form and not in list format.
Step 3: Define the Scope of the EBP
Why is this a problem? Give statistics and information to back the scope of the problem. How does this problem impact healthcare on a broader scale?
Steps 4 and 5: Determine Responsibility of Team Members
Why are the members chosen important to your project? What are their roles?
Evidence
Steps 6 and 7: Conduct Internal/ External Search for Evidence and Appraisal of Evidence
What type of evidence did you find? EBP guidelines? Quality improvement data? Position statements? Qualitative research? Quantitative research? 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.
Steps 8 and 9: Summarize the Evidence
Synthesize the information that you obtained from your sources. You will need at least four sources. Of these four sources, three must be from peer-reviewed articles. The other source can be from a reputable source. See page 44 of your text for examples of sources you can use.
In this section, you need to synthesize the information from the articles. Feel free to cite multiple articles within one sentence. You should avoid one paragraph for each of the sources.
Step 10: Develop Recommendations for Change Based 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
Steps 11, 12, and 13, 14: 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.
Steps 16 and 16: Evaluating Outcomes and Reporting Outcomes
What are the desired outcomes? How will they be measured? How will you report the results to the key stakeholders?
Steps 17: 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?
Step 18: 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 three levels of change for the John Hopkins EBP process.
