Project Overview:

Title: Evidence Based Project-Proposal

Description:

As the course progresses over the 11 weeks, learners will
develop a scholarly project that demonstrates an application of evidence to
practice for substantive change. This project emphasizes critical appraisal and
application of evidence-based research, scholarly writing, and critical
thinking. The scholarly project will be submitted as a written paper in APA
format/style. In addition, learners will present a summary of the final project
orally or by creating a PowerPoint presentation.

Learners will select one of the following types of projects
related to their specific advanced role specialization and target population: NSG6999 all Week Assignments

Educational program

Evidence-based healthcare policy change

Evidence-based clinical issue or protocol

Overview of the Evidence Based Project (EBP):

In Week 1 of the course, students will identify an area of
inquiry as a basis for practice change, and in Week 2, write their clinical
question in PICOT format that will drive the literature search.

Following approval of the practice change idea and the PICOT
question by course faculty, in Week 3 students will begin their literature
search and rapid critical appraisal (RCA) using the RCA checklists available in
Appendix D of the course text (Melynk & Fineout-Overholt, 2011) and in Word
format. The Search Tracker may be useful in organizing and tracking your
search.

Your evidence review will be completed in Week 4, resulting
in a finished Evaluation Table containing only the “keeper” studies.

In Week 5 you will synthesize the evidence to determine best
evidence for your project. Faculty will continue to serve in the role of mentor
as the student progresses through the remaining steps of the project.

Weekly submissions will be used to monitor progress in the
development of your proposal. It is recommended that upon receiving feedback
from faculty on each section, you revise your work and add that section to
build your final paper. Doing so as you proceed through the course will avoid
last-minute work.

When you began your study of evidence-based practice it was
contrasted with the research process. The underlying goal of EBP is to appraise
research and study its application to specific patient populations in order to
identify best practices. In order to accomplish this, what must be included
within your project is a research study. You will most likely compare
pre-intervention data with post-intervention results. In come cases,
statistical analysis will be necessary. Your proposal will include plans for
this study.

EBP Project Criteria

Students will prepare a formal project proposal using APA
format. Below is an outline for the final paper with the weeks where this
content will be covered. Each week you will turn in parts of this outline as
Dropbox assignments. The week each part will be due is indicated in the
outline. After receiving feedback from faculty on each part submitted, it is
recommended that you begin building your paper, adding the pieces where they
belong. Since you will not be implementing this project, the results section has
been omitted. This outline is consistent with the format used for journal
articles when reporting results of evidence-based practice projects.

This week’s Dropbox Assignment

Keep in mind that this proposal will be developed piece by
piece during the course. The Dropbox assignment this week provides you an
opportunity to identify the problem or issue within your specialization that is
in need of improvement and receive feedback from faculty.

Review the grading criteria listed below as you begin this
assignment. Note that you must pass all elements in order to move forward with
your proposal development. Faculty will provide feedback either approving or
asking that you resubmit prior to further development of your project.

For this week’s assignment discuss the following:

State your idea for your evidence-based project proposal
including the rationale as to how it reflects an EBP project vs. a research
project

Very briefly describe the issue you will address, the
intervention that you feel has research evidence (this may change later after
you complete the literature search), and the expected outcomes

Discuss how this project is relevant to your role
specialization

 

 

Week 2 assignment 2

Evidence Based Project
Proposal

For this week’s Dropbox assignment, you will submit Part 1
of the project proposal in a one-page APA formatted paper (excluding the cover
page and reference page). Be sure to reflect on feedback from faculty and
classmates from this week’s discussion. Include:

Part 1: Introduction

Summarize the practice issue in need of change providing
background information and the perceived significance of the problem

Describe the specific aims of the project – what improved
outcomes do you hope to achieve

State your question in PICOT format, labeling each part with
P-I-C-O-T in parentheses

Discuss the significance of the issue in terms of poor
outcomes, cost, etc

 

Week 3 assignment 2

Evidence Based
Project Proposal

This week you will begin the submission of Part 2 of the project
proposal written in APA format. In a one-page APA paper, write a narrative that
describes your search of the literature for evidence, which includes: NSG6999 all Week Assignments

List of the names of the databases you searched

If limited to a span of time, i.e., less than 5 years old

Using the appropriate Rapid Clinical Appraisal Tools,
appraise one or two articles and add the information to your Evaluation Table
to receive feedback from faculty. At this juncture, your table is a work in
progress. You will complete it in Week 4.

You will also turn in the Evaluation Table with two studies
appraised (see below) and the Search Tracker for feedback on your search
strategies.

After receiving feedback from faculty, add what you have
completed this week to Part 1 to begin to build your project proposal paper.
Keep this in mind when completing this assignment, using a professional writing
style in your narrative

 

Week 4 assignment 2

Evidence Based
Project Proposal

This week you will submit the completed Evaluation Table
that includes only your “keeper” studies. This will be added to your final
paper as an Appendix. You will also turn in the Search Tracker so faculty can
see the steps you took to locate the evidence. This will not become a part of
your paper, but it is for feedback only should faculty deem that necessary.

 

Week 5 assignment 2

Evidence Based
Project Proposal

For this week’s Dropbox assignment, you will complete Part 2
of your project proposal, the evidence review and synthesis section. This
section consists of narrative descriptions of each study that forms the body of
evidence. The length of this section will vary based on the number of studies
that you include. The paper should be written in a scholarly fashion using APA
format. For each article include in the narrative:

Authors’ names, date of publication (included in the
citation).

Quality and level of evidence

How significant (or not) the evidence is and why you think
so. How are these articles relevant to change practice or policy for your
specific practice site and population? If a study is not significant and you
have included it, mention how your clinical expertise was involved in this
decision.

Your summary the synthesis section should clearly indicate
the intervention you plan to use in your project proposal. You will discuss
this in greater detail in the next section, but do leave the reader with the
understanding of the intervention you chose.

You will also turn in your completed Synthesis Table(s) that
will become part of your Appendix in your final paper.

implement and the procedures you will use in enough detail that others could
replicate the study.

Instruments/scales and measurement of outcomes: Describe the
instruments you will use to measure changes and whether they are quantitative,
qualitative, or of a mixed design. If they have been tested previously, include
reliability and validity data.

Data collection: Explain plans for data collection
including:

Methods of collection, i.e., interviews, paper and pencil
testing, etc.
