Unit 6 Differentiate qualitative and quantitative research in terms of philosophy, methodology, and outcome. Critically analyze various types of research methods, designs, and evidence-based practice for scientific merit. Design a evidence-based practice project that incorporates scholarly inquiry applicable to a select problem in nursing practice, administration or education. Discussion Question/Prompt [Due Wednesday] As you complete the gathering and evaluation of the evidence, it’s important to review the significance and next steps related to EBP. Consider the following questions in your discussion post: How does a nurse know what (if any) knowledge in a research study is usable for clinical practice? The implementation of evidence-based care methods is complex and need approaches that disclose the complications of care, solo medical practitioners, higher ranking leaders, and modification of health care values to be evidence-based sheltered practice atmospheres. (Titler, 2008). Nursing has an abundant past using research in the clinical setting, established by Florence Nightingale. (Titler, 2008). Complex execution approaches are needed to further the use of research confirmation in clinical and executive health care resolutions. (Titler, 2008). To make an evidence-based change in the clinical setting encompasses a sequence of acts and a multifaceted, equation progression. (Titler, 2008). The execution of this conversion will take many weeks to several months, contingent on the type of practice conversion. (Titler, 2008). The unfamiliar setting must be frequently supported and constant or the practice modification will be sporadic and quickly decline, permitting more out-of-date methods of nursing to revert. (Titler, 2008). What would a critical thinker look for in the evidence before deciding to change? Nursing culture has accentuated critical thinking as a crucial nursing skill beyond the past 50 years. (Benner, Hughes, Sutphen, 2008). The American Philosophical Association (APA) has described critical thinking as decisive, self-guiding discernment that uses intellectual tools such as understanding, evaluation, investigation, deduction, and clarification of the equivalent, theoretical, organizational, relative reflection on which conclusions are grounded. (Benner, Hughes, Sutphen, 2008). What influence do credibility and clinical significance have on your decisions to integrate research-based evidence into your practice?
The use of evidence-based practice supplies nurses with a system to use significantly assessed and systematically confirmed evidence to provide superior health care to all clients. (Majid, Foo, Zhang, and Theng, 2011). Traditionally, the treatment of the patient was guided by the events and thoughts of those encompassed in delivering medical care.
