We are looking at data analysis, evidence-based practice and quality improvement during this module. Within Sherpath this week there are several case studies to review. There are many resources to use to assist us in improving the quality of care. These resources contain data that we must analyze. We also know from QSEN that case studies are a way of providing in-depth evidence-based discussion of clinical topics that can be used to guide practice.
This week you will develop/write/invent a case study that will demonstrate a nurse incurring a problem and using the following web site innovation(s) to improve patient care. So think of this as the reverse of how things would normally go……..â€¦problem incurred, case study evolvesâ€¦..then finding the literature, the experts, the EBP to improve quality.
Instead you have the research and innovation to fix or improve the problem but not the case that initiated the whole cascade towards quality improvement.
There are 933 innovations to look at, so choose something you are interested in, get creative in developing your real life scenario or case.
1. Beyond writing your case study, please
2. State the innovation being used, and the
3. Problem you are trying to fix.
