NRSG411:Unit 4 – Individual Project

Congratulations! Based on all of the evidence that you have provided to your supervisor, she has agreed with your request for a change related to a patient care issue.

Because you initiated this change, your supervisor requested that you give the presentation regarding this upcoming change. Prepare either a patient- or staff-oriented presentation that explains why you and your supervisor felt the change was necessary. You need to present the issue, the need for change, and much of the key evidence that you found to support the planned change.

Complete the following:

  • Develop a simple patient- or staff-oriented presentation of 12–15 slides.
  • Include all of the following slide headings:
    • Clinical Issue
    • Implications of Noncompliance
    • Evidence (5 current [within the past 5 years] scholarly or peer-reviewed articles, with 1 slide for each article)
    • Patient Guidelines or Nursing Practice Guidelines (depending on the patient care issue)
    • Benefits of Following the Guidelines
    • Summary
    • References
  • Some guidelines include the following:
    • Include approximately 3 graphics (more than this could make uploading the presentation to the classroom difficult).
    • Use bullets rather than paragraph narratives.

The submission should be a PowerPoint presentation of 12–15 slides, following the APA Expectations document for the College of Nursing.

NRSG411:Unit 3 – Individual Project

The next step in building a case for change is to find a number of additional, related articles to support your proposed change to patient care. You plan to do this by searching for additional evidence in the medical literature databases, but you know that you will have to search through a number of articles to find what you are looking for.

The information that you find will guide the development of your presentation to staff or patients, and you should provide rationale for doing things differently to enhance patient care.

You know that your supervisor does not have time to complete an in-depth review of each supporting article. Therefore, you plan to e-mail your supervisor an annotated bibliography of the evidence that supports your request for change.

Using the databases below, find 3 additional scholarly articles that support your request for change (This brings the total to 5, including the prior article from Unit 2 Discussion Board and the article from Unit 3 Discussion Board).

Write an annotated bibliography for each of the 5 identified studies.

Address the following:

  • Conduct a search that is related to your previously-identified clinical question or nursing problem. Conduct the search within the following primary data sources:
  • List the search terms that you used.
  • For each article summary (you will do this for all 5 articles), address all of the following:
    • Identify the purpose of the study, and include the research question.
    • Determine if it was qualitative or quantitative research. Explain how you arrived at this decision.
    • Describe the population studies.
    • Describe the methods that you used to collect data.
    • What was done to establish reliability and validity in this study?
    • What were the major findings?
    • What were the conclusions?
    • What were the study limitations?
    • Include a correctly formatted APA title page and reference page.

The submission should be 3-5 pages, excluding the title and reference pages, following the APA Expectations document for the College of Nursing.
