Question Description


Applying and Sharing Evidence to Practice (graded)

  • After the data have been analyzed, conclusions are made regarding what the findings mean. Then, this information must be shared with your healthcare team.
  • Choose one of the articles from the RRL assignment, and discuss the findings. Would you apply the evidence found to your practice? Explain your answer.
    • Translating research into practice is the final and most important step in the research process. Review information you found in your Week 3 Assignment, and explain ways in which you would share the research-based evidence with your peers.

This is the instructions I used for the week 3 assignment.

Directions: Use the form below to complete the Week 3 Assignment PICOT Evidence Worksheet. This includes filling in the table with information about your research question and your PICOT elements and the second part is filling in the Evidence Worksheet. Step 1: Select the key PICO terms for searching the evidence. Clearly define your PICOT question. List each element P (problem, population, or problem), I (intervention), C (Comparison with other treatment/current practice), and O (Desired outcome), T (Time Frame). Is the potential solution something for which you (as nurse or student) can find a solution through evidence research? Look in your book for guidelines to developing your PICOT question and also read the required articles. Step 2: Identify the problem. What have you noticed in your work or school environment that isn’t achieving the desired patient or learning outcomes? What needs to change in nursing, what can you change with the support of evidence in the literature? Describe the problem or practice issue that you want to research. What is your practice area; clinical, education, or administration? (This is NOT where you will list your PICOT question) Step 3: How was the practice issues identified? How did you come to know this was a problem in your clinical practice? Review the listed concerns and check all that apply. Step 4: What evidence must be gathered? What sources of reliable information will be helpful for your particular question? Step 5: What terms will you use in order to make sure that your search is wide enough to obtain required information but narrow enough to keep it focused? How will you narrow your search if needed?

What is the scope of the issue? What is the need for change? According to Monina Gesmundo, RN, BSN in her article: Enhancing Nurses’ Knowledge on Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) Prevention. “The life cycle of a catheter begins with the doctor’s decision to insert it. Nurses insert a catheter and keep it in place. Nurses are also responsible for catheter assessment and for making the doctor aware of its presence. Once reminded of the catheter’s existence, the doctor is then expected to recognize that the catheter is not necessary and order its removal. The last step involves the nurse, who responds to the doctor’s order by removing the catheter (Meddings & Saint, 2011)” (Gesmundo, 2016). The scope of the issue has become so significant it has become one of the huddle during shift change. I order to reduce the risk of infection related to the presence of a urinary catheter there must regular in-service/workshop to educate the nurse on how to properly care for the urinary catheter once inserted. Gesmundo explains it very well on her evidence based practice article mentioned on the previous paragraph.
