There is a heavy focus on achieving statistical significance when evaluating outcomes. Often in research or EBP projects, there is no statistical significance, only possible clinical significance. When is it appropriate to deem a project’s outcomes successful only using clinical significance as the only measure of success?
The three components of EBP include clinical expertise, best evidence, and patient preference. Often, patient preference and clinical expertise are at odds with each other. Describe a scenario where you might need to mediate this issue and what is the solution when this occurs. It can be a real-life example as well.
Choose one model for EBP implementation. Describe its components and why you believe this model is most appropriate for assisting in translational activities. Contrast this model with another.
Discuss the role of the DNP-prepared nurse in sustaining an EBP culture. What are two effective methods the DNP can use in sustaining an EBP culture?
Describe and discuss the differences between research, research utilization, and evidence-based practice. Provide examples.
Describe how you will assist others to generate their own evidence-based practice questions. Discuss what your professional obligation as a DNP-prepared nurse is related to evidence-based practice, patients, and other nurses?
