As a nurse in a healthcare organization, it has become evident that patient outcome data have been consistently declining in some patient care settings. Some of the outcomes under inspection include patient Hospital acquired pressure injury (HAPI), (4 % increase in the last 6 months) .
You have investigated contributing factors to the declining outcomes and participated with a team approach to developing an evidence-based practice project. After reading this article Aiken Article titled “The effects of nurse staffing and nurse education on patent deaths in hospital with different nurse work environment”, PICO: In a healthcare setting, what is the effect of nursing staffing in reducing patient outcomes in HAPI cases? Was developed.
In this assignment, you will complete this evidence-based practice (EBP) proposal using the categories below
- Conceptual and theoretical frameworks (an example of a conceptual model for an EBP project would be the Iowa Model). An example of a theoretical framework (this will support the phenomenon of interest) and if caring was an integral part of the project then Watson’s Model of caring might be a consideration). If a theoretical framework is selected, be sure that the purpose of the framework is discussed in detail, and explain specifically how the framework supports the evidence-based practice project. Do not select a theoretical framework just for the sake of selecting one.
- Evaluation and Analysis.
- Significance and/or implications for practice
