Topic 6 DQ1 After discussion with your mentor, name one financial aspect, one quality aspect, and one clinical aspect that need to be taken into account for developing the evidence-based practice project. Explain how your proposal will directly and indirectly impact each of the aspects. After discussion with my mentor, we both agreed EBP can improves the quality and safety of healthcare, enhances health outcomes, and reduces costs. Due to increased CAUTIs in our ICU, I suggest to try a culture change: the introduction of a new external urinary collection device for females. Piper and Cleland introduced the device in 1993, but it was not accepted into practice. More recently, the female external catheter device (FECD) was piloted by Beeson and Davis (2018) with more success. For financial aspect, my proposal will reduce the cost of healthcare for patients and hospital. The patients will be less chance to get CAUTIs when stay in hospital. It means the patients no longer to pay the treatment of CAUTIs. For quality aspects, it can improve the healthcare quality which it can reduce the CAUTIs in ICU. The patients have the better health care. For the clinical aspect, it may impact the current nursing practice. The nurse needs to change their practice and implement the new external urinary collection device for patients. For the better nursing care, nurses should follow and use the new proposal.
