ORDER CUSTOM, PLAGIARISM-FREE PAPERS ON  Capstone Project Topic Selection – (Nursing}

This assignment is going to be part of a bigger assignment to submit by the end of my course. think of it as making one big evidence based research paper step by step, this assignment being the first step. So I am looking towards a continuous relation with a good tutor till the end of course November.

SO first thing, the whole scenario is that, I am a nurse mentoring under my senior charge nurse. I work in baby/mother (maternal) unit. So I need to identify a nursing issue in my unit and research and provide evidence based interventions etc.You need to find 8 scholarly article sources and cite them as well(I will need these papers throughout the course) I will attach 2 documents along with this which provides instructors requirements for this assignment. APA FORMAT ALSO. VERY IMPORTANT

So I have attached my discussion post which has my topic(BSR) I have chosen so far. (If you can think of a better one, let me know, if not assignment is going to be based of this topic).

Below I am pasting instructors exact instructions from website for this specific assignment.

“In collaboration with your approved course mentor, you will identify a specific evidence-based practice proposal topic for the capstone project. Consider the clinical environment in which you are currently working or have recently worked. The capstone project topic can be a clinical practice problem, an organizational issue, a quality improvement suggestion, a leadership initiative, or an educational need appropriate to your area of interest as well as your practice immersion (practicum) setting. Examples of the integration of community health, leadership, and an EBP can be found on the “Educational and Community-Based Programs” page of the Healthy People 2020 website.

Write a 500-750 word description of your proposed capstone project topic. Make sure to include the following:

  1. The problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need that will be the focus of the project
  2. The setting or context in which the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need can be observed.
  3. A description providing a high level of detail regarding the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need.
  4. Impact of the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need on the work environment, the quality of care provided by staff, and patient outcomes.
  5. Significance of the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need and its implications to nursing.
  6. A proposed solution to the identified project topic

You are required to retrieve and assess a minimum of 8 peer-reviewed articles. Plan your time accordingly to complete this assignment.”

In the last six-eight months my hospital has tried to implement the use of bedside report (BSR) in order to be in compliance with Joint Commission Standards. Evidence-based research shows that when a new procedure is introduced into a hospital, it is best piloted in a small unit to work out the kinks before rolling it out to the entire hospital. My unit, the Maternal Unit, was selected for this roll-out based on our size and our staffing ratios. The request to start doing this form of shift report has been and is still being met with a great amount of resistance. Having been the pilot unit, at this point our unit should be setting the example for other units and introducing it in our practice when nurses from larger units either float into ours or we float down to their units. It is to be the gold standard in shift change reporting. One of the two implications to nurses is first the change in habit. Traditionally shift report has taken the nurses away from the bedside. Often nurses are preparing their report, delivering the report, and then looking at items in the chart which is mostly done at the nurses station. This means for nearly an hour the patient is without a nurse at the bedside. Changing to bedside report will put two patients in the room during change of shift, even if for only 5-10 minutes. However, these 5-10 minutes could be life-saving minutes. According to the Joint Commission, the “alone time” that patients experience during change of shift is the time when sentinel events are most likely to occur (The Joint Commission, 2017). By changing the process, nurses will be able to identify safety hazards, get a visual of patient’s condition and double check alarms and monitoring equipment while involving the patient in the situation, background, assessment and recommendation (SBAR) report for the coming shift. The second implication of changing to this method of report is improved communication between staff. BSR allows staff to work together at the bedside, ensuring accountability (Ofori-Atta, Binienda, & Chalupka, 2015). Capstone Project Topic Selection – (Nursing}
What has not happened with the implementation of the BSR at my facility thus far is the introduction of a standardized format, such as SBAR. When bedside report is done, particularly with a standardized format, communication is faster, more streamlined, and nurses are better able to prioritize. Teamwork can be improved when communication between the nurses improves. When this is done at the bedside, it assures patients and family members that their team of caretakers are working diligently together to improve their health and thus also improves patient satisfaction. I suspect the change at my facility will duplicate the evidence already reported by other studies describing not only improved communication and a decrease in sentinel events, but will also show a decrease in medication errors, less nurse overtime, and increased patient satisfaction (Ofori-Atta et al., 2015).

P: I: C: O: T: Then, develop a PICOT question/statement. Examples of PICOT questions/statements: • • In adult cardiac surgery patients experiencing post-operative pain (P) immediately following surgery (P), is morphine (I) or fentanyl (C), administered intravenously, more effective in reducing postoperative (T) pain (O)? For immune-compromised patients, 50 years and older (P), does the use of pneumonia vaccine (I) reduce the future risk (T) of pneumonia (O) compared with patients who have not received the vaccine (C)? © 2015.
