Exploring EBP Quality Improvement
Part 1: Key Project ElementsDescribe the three healthcare settings that you explored as proposed sites for an EBP QI project. For each health care setting, identify the following defining features: patient population, mission, public or private entity, single institution or member of a corporation, and others you identify as significant.Compare the settings for strengths and weaknesses as sites for an EBP QI project. Be specific and provide examples.Explain the practice problems that you explored based on your interests and identified needs of the health care settings you investigated.Explain why each problem is a potential focus for an EBP QI project. Be specific and provide examples.For each health care setting, describe the stakeholders whose approval would be required to initiate an EBP QI project and implement the results.Compare similarities and differences in stakeholder requirements across the settings.Identify the one proposed health care setting/practice site and one proposed practice problem you have selected as the focus of a hypothetical presentation to stakeholders, and explain your choices.Part 2: Implementation Science PresentationDevelop a PowerPoint presentation of 3–5 slides, plus cover and reference slides, to inform a set of potential stakeholders at the practice site you have identified for a proposed EBP QI project. Although you will not make your presentation, it should be authentic to the purpose and include the following:Introduce the framework or model you have selected for the EBP QI project and your reasoning. (1–2 slides)Present a draft of the proposed practice problem. Include notes for each slide describing points you would make to the assembled stakeholders to obtain their approval or buy-in for the EBP QI project. (2–3 slides).
