Finding Knowledge Jesus
Responses to classmates must consist of at least 350 words (not including the greeting and the references), do NOT repeat the same thing your classmate is saying, try to add something of value like a resource, educational information to give to patients, possible bad outcomes associated with the medicines discussed in the case, try to include a sample case you’ve seen at work and discuss how you feel about how that case was handled. Try to use supportive information such as current Tx guidelines, current research related to the treatment, anything that will enhance learning in the online classroom. The foundation of nursing has come a long way since developing a form of practice based on evidence otherwise known as evidence-based practice. This was done to help identify and provide treatment for diseases, health promotion and wellness. This is often accomplished by following a systemic process requiring evidence to support such practices. There are three methods that will be used to in developing practice behaviors that is knowledge specific. The first step in the process would involve a literature review. This is to be considered an important step for any research since it collects evidence based on best practices and uses an in-depth understanding of the research topic. Using literature review helps to identify both the positive and negative results of a specific study while also using current research versus duplicating research. When done effectively, the researcher can help to identify faulty practices to improve the areas requiring change. The Second step would be surveying the research. This can be completed through quantitative, qualitative or both forms of the research done. The DNP researcher would develop a specific set of questions based on the topic to be distributed to groups or individuals that would find it beneficial for change. The researcher is able to understand the various tools in collecting data such as internet surveys, telephone evaluations and even via mail. Once collected, it should be analyzed to help develop a strong conclusion and help support practice areas needing modifications or change. The third step to be taken is transformation of knowledge. Since research is in consistent change, it’s important to continuously work on finding new information for various viable sources. The researcher should gather knowledge and work to transform it into clinical practices. The researcher should keep in mind that the process is complex and requires time. Using all available evidence identified, researcher can collaborate with various leaders to help with practice changes and to help bring an improved upon set of practice to already developed evidenced based level of care.
