NR451 RN Capstone Course

NR451 RN Capstone Course

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.
