Describe the current healthcare practices related to the problem

Understanding Task 2

XAP1-0219

You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed

criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by

more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions

of the course.

A. Write a summary of the significance and background of a healthcare problem by doing the

following:

1. Describe a healthcare problem that can be used to develop a PICO question.

Note: You may use the same topic and the same research articles that were used in Task 1 provided they

support the proposed intervention. Or you may choose a different topic and select articles focusing on one

of the following topics: falls and fall prevention, pain management in children, opioid abuse, hepatitis C,

catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and hand hygiene and infections in hospitals.

• APA Header: Healthcare Problems:

o Rubric: The described healthcare problem contains enough detail that it can be

used to develop a PICO question. The described healthcare problem is one that is

currently prioritized in healthcare organizations.

 

2. Explain the significance of the problem from part A1.

• APA Header: Significance of Problem

o Rubric: The explanation thoroughly addresses the significance of the problem

described in part A1.” The explanation contains enough detail to address the

significance of the problem described in part A1.

 

3. Describe the current healthcare practices related to the problem from part A1.

• APA Header: Current Practice

o Rubric: The description incorporates specific examples of the current healthcare

practices related to the described problem from part A1.

 

4. Discuss how the problem affects the organization and patients’ cultural background (i.e.,

values, health behavior, and preferences).

• APA Header: Impact on Background

o Rubric: The discussion incorporates specific details of how the problem affects

the organization and specific examples of how the problem impacts the patient’s

cultural background.

B. Complete a literature review by searching for a total of seven articles consisting

of five research articles and two non-research articles related to the healthcare problem from

part A1, and describe the search strategy you used to conduct the literature review by doing

the following:

1. Discuss two research evidence sources and two nonresearch evidence sources that you considered.

Note: Please do not use the same primary author for more than two articles. Articles must not be

more than five years old.

• APA Header: Evidence Sources

o Rubric: The discussion of 2 research evidence sources and 2 nonresearch

evidence sources conveys a level of understanding in relation to appropriate

scholarly and secular sources.

C. Use your research articles to develop a PICO (patient/population, intervention/indicator,

comparison/control, and outcome) question based on the topic.

• APA Header: PICO Question

o Rubric: The developed question includes all elements of PICO

(patient/population, intervention/indicator, comparison/control, and outcome), is

based on the topic and uses research from part B.

 

D. Complete the attached “Evidence Matrix,” using the five research evidence sources from

scholarly journal sources you located during the literature review in part B. For each article,

address the following points:

Note: You may submit your completed matrix as a separate attachment to the task, or you may

include the matrix within your paper, aligned to APA formatting standards.

Note: Upload a copy of the full text of the articles with your submission.

• author, journal name, and year of publication

• research design (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, mixed design, systematic review)

• sample size (e.g., numbers of study participants, number of articles, number of

control group participants)

• outcome variables measured (e.g., identify what the research is measuring)

• quality (using the following scale: A, B, C)

• results/author’s conclusions (e.g., briefly summarize the outcome)

• Download the Evidence Matrix

o Rubric: The “Evidence Matrix” attachment includes the 5 sources from part B,

and the scholarly journal sources are located in major medical databases. All of

the given points are accurately or logically addressed for each source.

E. Recommend a practice change that addresses the PICO question, using the evidence collected

in the attached “Evidence Matrix.” You must use all five research articles from the “Evidence

Matrix” attachment to support this recommendation via in-text citations.

• APA Header: Recommended Practice Change

o Rubric: The recommended practice change is an logical outcome of the PICO

question and is supported by the evidence collected in the “Evidence Matrix”

attachment. All 5 research articles from the “Evidence Matrix” attachment are

used via in-text citations to support the recommendation.

 

F. Describe a process for implementing the practice change from part E in which you do the

following:

1. Explain how you would involve three key stakeholders in the decision to implement the

recommendation from part E.

• APA Header: Key Stakeholders

o Rubric: The explanation shows an effective way for 3 key stakeholders to be

involved in the decision to implement the recommendation from part E.

 

1. Describe two specific barriers you may encounter when implementing the practice

change from part E in the nursing practice setting.

• APA Header: Barriers

o Rubric: The description addresses 2 plausible barriers that may be encountered

when implementing the practice change from part E in a nursing practice setting.

 

2. Identify two strategies that could be used to overcome the barriers described in part F2.

• APA Header: Strategies for Barriers

o Rubric: 2 strategies that could be used to overcome the barriers described in part

F2 are identified.

 

3. Identify one indicator to measure the outcome (the O in PICO question) of the

recommended change practice from part E.

• APA Header: Indicator to Measure Outcome

o Rubric: The 1 identified indicator would measure the outcome of the

recommended practice change from part E.

 

G. Acknowledge sources, using APA-formatted in-text citations and references, for content that

is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

o Rubric: The submission includes in-text citations and references for content that

is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized and demonstrates a consistent application

of APA style.

H. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.

o Rubric: Content reflects attention to detail, is organized, and focuses on the

main ideas as prescribed in the task or chosen by the candidate. Terminology

is pertinent, is used correctly, and effectively conveys the intended meaning.

Mechanics, usage, and grammar promote accurate interpretation and

understanding.
