My job involves working with patients who are on a ventilator. Pneumothorax is one of the complications that patients on the vent are more likely to experience due to the high level of oxygenation. How could evidence-based practice change that is related to my area of practice be applied?
This is the topic of the assignment.
Find an article in a peer-reviewed nursing journal about a practice change based on research, preferably one that is relevant to your area of practice or organization. Please keep in mind that you are looking for an evidence-based article that describes a change in practice that was based on research; this is all about applying research, not conducting research. As a result, you are not looking for a research article, but rather for an article that uses research evidence to effect change.
Describe the change and comment on the strength of the research evidence used, as well as whether the change resulted in better patient outcomes.
Take note of any change barriers that were identified and how they were overcome.
Finish by reflecting on how this article will help you in your role as an advanced practice nurse leading others to use the best evidence to strengthen nursing practice and improve nursing-sensitive patient outcomes.
