Assignment Practice Scenario

Your Chief Nurse Executive (CNE) recognizes you are pursuing your BSN and has asked you to be a member of the nursing evidence-based practice (NEBP) committee. She has advised the members that the purpose is to conduct nursing research studies involving  clinical practice problems. Increasing nurses’ awareness of quality and safety concerns will help develop an attitude of inquiry and asking questions (Sherwood & Barnsteiner, 2017). Baccalaureate nurses “collaborate in problem identification, participate in  the process of search, retrieval, and documentation of evidence, and integrate evidence using credible databases and internet resources” (AACN, 2008, pp. 16-17).

The CNE has advised all members of the following areas of quality and safety clinical practice that each committee member needs to consider and choose only one   as a priority area for conducting a research study. Sources of research problems come from nursing clinical practice (Houser, 2018):

   

Quality                                                                Safety

  

  • Patient satisfaction
  • Patient education                                                                Falls

                                                               Errors. Examples include: 

  • Non-pharmacological pain management                 Medication
  •                                                                                                            Patient identification
  •                                                                                                            Communication

                                Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs).    Examples include: 

  • Readmissions
  • Length of stay                                                                 Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI)
  • Costs                                                                                    Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI)
  •                                                                                                  Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP)
  •                                                                                                   Surgical Site Infections (SSI)
  •                                                                                                  Sepsis (Screening or Prevention)
  • Discharge Teaching/Coaching                              Pressure Ulcers
  • Transitions of Care/Level of Care                       Skin Integrity

Your CNE has requested that you select ONLY one  topic area and complete the PPE Worksheet using only one topic area. The committee will collaborate and decide as a team which nursing clinical problem area will be the priority  focus of their next research study. Thank you for your valuable contributions to this important NEBP committee.
