The use of a dietician can help Mr. Nowak identify healthier foods to incorporate orremove from his diet. For example, he can eliminate fried and processed foods to reduce theformulation of plaque in his arteries, which can decrease the risk of heart conditions. Supportwill be given throughout the treatment plan and during recovery. Family or significant others willbe encouraged to participate in care if Mr. Nowak gives permission. Interval follow-up meetingswill be conducted to discuss patient experience and if any changes need to be adjusted to thetreatment plan. He will have weekly group therapy to address his associated stress and concernswith participants with similar issues. Therapy can also help to discover coping mechanisms and

These desired outcomes include improved balance, decreased level of stress in managingcondition, and healthy blood pressure.The Relevance of EvidenceThe evidence-based interventions collected within this report proved evidence ofimprovement to the outcomes of the participants. Data collected was from research in randomcontrolled trials, systematic reviews, and qualitative experiments. The research data consisted ofevidence in levels one and four. Level one evidence is experimental designs that may consist ofsystematic reviews of randomized controlled trials or experimental studies. Level four evidenceis observational, descriptive studies that can consist of systematic reviews of qualitative studiesthat describe participant experiences (Joanna Briggs Institute, 2020). A systematic reviewsummarizes the results of controlled trials. This type of review provides a high level of evidenceon the effectiveness of healthcare interventions (Cochrane Consumer Network, 2020).Randomized controlled trials are studies with participants that are randomly chosen or havespecific inclusion criteria. This type of study seeks to measure and compare the outcomes afterthe participants receive the interventions (Joanna Briggs Institute, 2020). The evidence isvaluable and relevant to Mr. Nowak's case because it is interventions that have been researchedsystematically to identify the positive outcomes resulting from evidence-based solutions used inpractice. Also, the interventions were specific to the participants. For example, interventionswere beneficial, affordable, and promoted autonomy in healthcare decision making. Concerningthese interventions, there can be barriers that affect implementation. There may be gaps inexisting evidence, lack of validated measurement tools, variations in clinical practice, and
PATIENT CENTERED CARE REPORT9limited funding. Some of these barriers are unavoidable. It is important to always collect accurateor valid research data and identify knowledge gaps and any other barriers that might affect futureprojects. Each piece of evidence is appropriate for TBI/PTSD patients and specifically Mr.
