The Purpose of this assignment is to formulate a clinical question that will be the basis for the quality improvement proposal you will be beginning this semester. Part 2 of this proposal will be developed in NURS 495.

Consider the type of patient care issue that you would like to learn more about. You can also refer to the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators for a list of possible topics to research. 

Please use patient Falls for this assignment.

 

Describe the background of the question, present the question using the PICOT format, and discuss your rationale for selecting this question. The paper should be no more than 3 pages (not including title page and references). 

Please keep in mind, when you are completing the second part of your Quality Improvement Project in NURS 495, you will need to develop a business plan to implement the findings you have found in the literature. Be sure to select a patient care topic that you will allow you to develop a plan for implementation. 

Your Paper will be based on the following criteria:

Assignment #2: Summary Table - Levels of Evidence

(Due Week 5 - 2/12/2017; 20% of final grade)

 

After you have defined your PICOT question and identified your patient care issue, you can begin and the first part of your quality improvement (QI) project. In order to do this you will need to do a literature search to find evidence for your topic. Once you have found the evidence in the literature, construct a table of evidence from studies relevant to your topic that you have found from your literature search. In general, you should limit your literature search to articles and major reviews which have been published during the last five years. There should be a minimum of six articles reviewed and you can include systematic reviews. The columns in the table should include the following:  

  1. Title, journal in which the study was published, year it was published
  2. Type of study (refer to the table on page 62 of this article)
  3. The research question or hypothesis
  4. The study methodology
  5. The level of the evidence (refer to )
  6. Description of the subjects and sample size
  7. Major findings from the study

Additional resources can be found at the following website. (Health Sciences Library, 2012 Evidence-Based Practice Tools) http://libguides.hsl.washington.edu/ebptools

Assignment #3: Quality Improvement Proposal Paper Part 1

(Due Week 7 - 2/26/2017; 25% of final grade)

 

This is the first of a two-part assignment. The second part of this assignment will be developed in NURS 495.

For Part 1, based on the PICOT question you developed and the evidence you obtained in the literature, you will present a literature review based on the findings that address possible interventions for your identified clinical question. 

For Part 2, (which will be completed in NURS 495), you will continue to develop your Quality Improvement (QI) Plan. In the second part of the paper, you will utilize the research that you conducted in this class to develop an implementation and evaluation plan for your identified patient care need. This will include identifying a timeline, stakeholders, responsibilities for implementation and feedback, identifying needed resources, outlining budgetary needs and developing an evaluation plan. Further information will be given in NURS 495 on developing your plan, however it would be helpful to keep the requirements for the second part of the paper in mind when choosing your topic to research.

In NURS 495, you will also be conducting an interview of a nurse manager. After you have completed your QI plan, you will be presenting you plan to the nurse manager you interviewed for feedback. 

Please be sure to keep a copy of your paper with your instructor’s comments after the end of the semester. You will be continuing this project in NURS 495.

Part 1 should be between 7-10 pages (not including cover page and references). It will be graded with the following rubric:
