Week 2 Discussion

Research, Practice Problems, and Questions

This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcome (CO).

CO 2:Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. (POs 4 & 8)

CO 5: Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice. (POs 7 & 8)

Professional nurses rely on research findings to inform practice decisions; they use critical thinking to apply research directly to specific patient care situations.

Think about an independent nursing practice problem you care passionately about and would be interested in searching for evidence. *For the below questions, medical/doctor/physician problems will not be used, for example, treatments such as medications or diagnostics such as cardiac catherizations. Also, broad practice problems such as staffing issues, workforce issues, or patient ratios will not be used as this is an organizational/system/political/administrative/multi-stakeholder problem which nursing cannot solve independently.

Reflect on nursing practice and describe a significant nursing clinical issue, topic of interest, or practice problem that is important to you. Describe why you chose the problem/topic.

Develop a searchable, clinical question in the PICO(T) format for your nursing practice problem. *To format your clinical question using PICO(T), use the AAACN Toolkit: Template for Asking PICOT Questions found in your required reading or access the following link.

https://www.aaacn.org/sites/default/files/documents/misc-docs/1e_PICOT_Questions_template.pdf (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

List each of your PICOT elements.

Share why you care about this nursing practice problem and why you believe the problem would benefit from finding the best evidence.

This week we learned how research designs are different and help us to objectively study nursing problems; the key is to decide which type of research and design will serve the purpose or intent to find a solution. After completing Week 4 readings and lesson, answer the following:

Reflect on your learning about Quantitative and Qualitative research; share two ways that helped you understand how they are different.

Chose one category of study design that you found interesting and describe; include how you believe it can help study nursing problems.

Refer back to your article you located for your Week 3 Assignment and answer the following: (*if you were unsuccessful with your article search, search the library again for an article)

Locate and describe the type of research and the study design.

Explain how the design supported the purpose/intent of the study.

Assignment Practice Scenario

Your Chief Nurse Executive (CNE) recognizes you are pursuing your BSN and has asked you to be a member of the nursing evidence-based practice (NEBP) committee. She has advised the members that the purpose is to conduct nursing research studies involving clinical practice problems. Increasing nurses’ awareness of quality and safety concerns will help develop an attitude of inquiry and asking questions (Sherwood & Barnsteiner, 2017). Baccalaureate nurses “collaborate in problem identification, participate in the process of search, retrieval, and documentation of evidence, and integrate evidence using credible databases and internet resources” (AACN, 2008, pp. 16-17).

The CNE has advised all members of the following areas of quality and safety clinical practice that each committee member needs to consider and choose one as a priority area for conducting a research study. Sources of research problems come from nursing clinical practice (Houser, 2018):
