Assume you are a member of a workplace team that has identified a new best practice to implement. As an RN, I work in a hospital setting. In this assignment, you will describe the steps involved in putting this new practice into action. This will necessitate some independent research into how change occurs in your workplace. You will need to review your policies and procedures, and you may need to consult with a supervisor who has prior experience in this area. You’ll need to back up your arguments for why you believe a change is necessary. This should be accomplished through the use of literature.


Distinguish between research, research utilization, and evidence-based practice.
Determine the steps in evidence-based practice.
