NURS 8410 Week 10 Assignment 2: Application 5: Disseminating the EBP Assignment

Assignment 2: Application 5: Disseminating the EBP Assignment

One of the chief purposes of translating evidence into practice is to advance the field of nursing. Dissemination is a critical step in this process. It is important to disseminate and share the information gained from a translation-of-evidence project to enhance the body of knowledge within the profession, thus furthering the science of nursing. To prepare for this week’s section of Application 5:

  • Continue (from this week’s Discussion) to:
    • Analyze the role of the DNP-prepared nurse in scholarship

The full Application 5 is due by Day 6 of week 11.

For this assignment you will prepare a scholarly product that reports the results and implications of your project to designed audience.  The scholarly product for dissemination reports the results and implications of your project to a specified audience. Your scholarly product may be in the form of a project summary and evaluation report,  poster presentation, program evaluation report, or a media or technology-based deliverable, Your scholarly product must include the following:

  • Background, Purpose, and Nature of the Project (2 points)
    Describe the larger problem or issue you explored in your DNP Project. Identify your practice-focused question. Explain how this problem or issue affects nursing practice and the overall health care system, and describe how your DNP Project explored possible strategies for addressing the problem or issue.
  • Evidence (2 points)

Identify the practice setting and context in which you conducted your project, a summary of the evidence supporting the project, and the process for implementation and evaluation.  

  • Presentation of Results (2 points)

Explain the results of your DNP Project and recommendations for change that you made to the organization.

Note: Up to 2 points may be deducted for grammar, spelling, and/or APA errors.

This Application is due by Day 6 of Week 11.

NURS 8410 Week 10 Assignment 1: Application 4: Planning for Change, Implementing and Evaluating EBP Assignments

Evaluating EBP Assignments

Many factors influence how successfully an EBP Project is implemented and evaluated. As noted in this week’s Learning Resources, using a translation framework can facilitate effective implementation and the evaluation of outcomes.

As you complete Application 4, revisit the evidence-based practice model or framework you selected for your EBP Assignment (Application 2). How does the model or framework facilitate the evaluation of outcomes? Would another model or framework better meet the needs of your project?

To prepare for this week’s section of Application 4:

  • Continue (from this week’s Discussion) to:
    • Identify an appropriate method for evaluating your outcomes.
    • Develop new practice guidelines based on the possible results of the evaluation.
    • Create, if appropriate, new standards of care that would be based on the new practice guidelines.

The full Application 4 is due by Day 7 of this week. Instructions for how to prepare for previous sections of this Application have been provided in Weeks 8 and 9.

To complete:

Write a 4- to 8-page paper that addresses the following:

Planning for Change

  • Analyze the impact of implementing change in your practice environment, including the factors that need to be considered regarding stakeholders and end users.
  • Summarize the methods you would use to ensure that those are adequately addressed.

Implementing EBP Assignments

  • Identify the desired outcomes of your EBP Assignment.
  • Describe any macro or micro systems issues that may inhibit implementation and strategies for resolving those issues.
  • Explain how resolving your EBP Assignment issue will improve quality and patient safety.

Evaluating EBP Assignments

  • Describe evaluation strategies.
  • Formulate new practice guidelines based on the possible results of the evaluation of outcomes.
  • Describe, if appropriate, new standards of care relevant to the new practice guidelines.

By Day 7

Application 4 is due.

Week in Review

This week, you evaluated new practice approach outcomes in a specialty area and developed guidelines for practice based on the evaluation of outcomes. You also recommended new standards of care to address a health issue in a specialty area.

In this final week, you will assess the role of dissemination in scholarship. You will complete your practicum experience and submit your time log and final journal entry.

NURS 8410 Week 10: Evaluation of Outcomes

“One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.”
—Milton Friedman

How do you measure the success of a translation project to determine if new practice approaches actually make a difference? Evaluating the results or outcomes of the translation of evidence into practice is the key. Only by evaluating the outcomes can you ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of your new practice approaches.

During Week 9, you outlined desired outcomes for the issue you have been addressing through your EBP Assignment. In the Discussion, you suggested changes at the micro and/or macro systems level to improve quality outcomes.

This week, you determine how the success of the new practice approaches can be evaluated. Then, you explore the next steps of translating research evidence into new guidelines for practice, and ultimately, standards of care. You also continue your practicum experience.
