As a nurse, I have to make frequent clinical decisions each day that affect the health outcomes of my patients. By using the best research evidence available, I can make quality care decisions thatwill improve patients and families’ health outcomes. As conducting research on causes of suicideamong teens, my mentor brings in to consideration that the evidence-based practice can reduce the number of successful suicides among teenagers. According to Maurer (2019), The reasons forchildren committing suicide are derived not only from a child’s imagination or personal knowledge but also via inspiration from the internet and other people. An effort to decrease suicide rates among teens requires a systemic approach that involves organizational change. According to the CDC, in 2017, five completions per 100,000 for females and 18 completions per 100,000 teen males remain far too high. Suicide screenings to reduce suicide rates among teens should be part of an organizational culture of evidence- based practice.ReferenceCenter for Disease Control and Prevention. (2017).
