To prepare:

Read: Newhouse, R.P. (2007) Diffusing confusion among evidence-based practice, quality improvement and research. JONA 37,432-535

Read: Mazurek Melynk B., Gallagher-Ford, L., English Long, L., & Fineout-Overholt, E. (2014) The establishment of Evidence-Based practice competencies for practicing registered nurses and advanced practice nurses in real world clinical settings: proficiencies to improve healthcare quality, reliability, patient outcomes, and costs Worldviews on Evidence-Based Nursing 11(1),5-15.

We all agree that research is the highest form of reliable evidence, when implemented in an organization that provides the basis for an evidence based practice. As a group: FIND a research study published in a peer reviewed journal related to a clinical practice problem that is of interest to the group, and which would ultimately contribute to an evidence based practice.

The discussion assignment:

ANSWER the following discussion questions as a group: (as a team, post your responses by Sunday at midnight). Include the research study in your post (attach it to the post and post it in doc sharing). See page 11 #15 in Mazurek Melynk, Gallagher Ford, English Long and Fineout-Overholt. In this assignment, you are being asked to critically appraise a single research study for its relevance to a QI practice problem.

Each member of the team must participate (weekly rules for discussion) on the group discussion board in order to get full credit.

Discussion questions:

  • What was the purpose of the research?
  • Identify the independent and dependent variables in the study.
  • Briefly describe the research design, data collection method(s), and instruments used to measure the variables under study.
  • Briefly summarize study findings, conclusions and recommendations. Do you agree with these?
  • As a DNP prepared nurse, would you recommend a change in nursing practice based on the study? Defend and/or justify your decision based on research evaluation principles. In other words, does the evidence generated by this research article signify a need to change nursing practice? If not, why not; if so why?

By Day 3

Post your team’s answers in the form of a main post on your group discussion board. Each member of the group must participate in week 10 in order to receive the grade.
