Describe briefly an example of a nursing practice that has changed in the last two years.
For this assessment, imagine a group of interprofessional stakeholders involved with patient care in your health care setting would like to increase positive patient outcomes. Nurse leaders have recommended changes in the practice that incorporate informatics and the application of new knowledge into your nursing practices.
You are asked to present a brief overview using PowerPoint (or some other presentation software) to a small group of student nurses. After the session has concluded, the training department would like to use your presentation as a training resource.
Select a nursing practice in your own health care setting that has changed for the better since you first began nursing.
Use the tools in your presentation software to develop a creative and engaging presentation. Use the notes portion of PowerPoint to capture your narrative script for each slide. Include the following in your presentation:
- Describe briefly an example of a nursing practice that has changed in the last two years.
- Explain how theory development, research exploration, and information technology supports the changes you have described.
- Describe the basic differences between research (qualitative and quantitative) and evidence-based practice (EBP).
- Explain how nurse leaders use communication practices and technology to build interprofessional stakeholder engagements in support of the change you have identified.
- Describe how nurse leaders use evidence-based practice to support and sustain patient-care outcomes.
- Length: Submit a presentation of 10–12 slides (not including title and reference slides). Include both a title slide and a reference slide with 4–6 references to support your presentation information and ideas.
- Formatting Guidelines: Create streamlined slides with minimal information.
- Be precise.
- Keep bulleted content on one line.
- Use images instead of words when appropriate.
- Narrative Script: Use the notes portion to create a detailed narrative for each slide.
To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.
- How do you manage and lead technology use?
- What will the future of health care delivery look like as you contemplate technology development?
- What should nurses be prepared for within the context of technology use to develop improved patient care (from a strategic standpoint)?
- How do we translate new technology knowledge into patient care to develop evidence-based practice?
- How do we maintain patient safety and continue to improve patient outcomes as we increase technology use in health care?
