Collaborative identification and interpretation of practice problems is a requirement of professional practice (AACN, 2008). Locating and summarizing literature using credible online databases is necessary for evidence-based nursing (AACN, 2008; QSEN, 2018). Purpose This assignment provides a learning activity for students to experience a practice-based scenario and apply a process worksheet designed to assist in the identification of an independent nursing problem or concern, develop a PICOT clinical question, and search for evidence using credible online databases/sources. Course Outcomes This assignment enables the student to meet the following Course Outcomes. CO1: Examine the sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice. (PO 7) CO2: Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. (POs 4 & 8) CO4: Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and significance related to evidence-based practice. (POs 4 & 8) CO5: Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice. (POs 7 & 8) Due Date Submit the completed PPL Worksheet by Sunday, 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 3.

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 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 Non-pharmacological pain management Errors (any). Examples include: · Medication · Patient identification · Communication Readmissions Length of stay Costs Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs). (Any type) Examples include: · Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI) · Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) · Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) · Surgical Site Infections (SSI) Sepsis Discharge Teaching/Coaching Transitions of Care/Level of Care Pressure Ulcers Skin Integrity Your CNE has requested that you are to select one area and complete the PPL Worksheet using that topic. 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. References American Association of Colleges of Nurses (AACN). (2008).
