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 only one as a priority area for conducting a research study. Sources of research problems come from nursing clinical practice (Houser, 2018):

Quality:
Patient satisfaction

Patient education

Non-pharmacological pain management

Readmissions

Length of stay

Costs

Discharge Teaching/Coaching

Transitions of Care/Level of Care

Safety:
Falls

Errors. Examples include:
Medication
Patient identification
Communication

Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs).
Examples include:
Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI)
Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI)
Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP)
Surgical Site Infections (SSI)
Sepsis (Screening or Prevention)

Pressure Ulcers

Skin Integrity

Your CNE has requested that you select ONLY one topic area and complete the PPE Worksheet using only one topic area. The committee will collaborate and decide as a team which nursing clinical problem area will be the priority focus of their next research study. Thank you for your valuable contributions to this important NEBP committee.
