Nursing research and evidence-based practice

Posted by Winniem on February 20th, 2019

Introduction

The influence of evidence-based practice is becoming useful in the nursing practice, science and education (Shivnan, 2011).  The call for evidence-based practice for quality improvement and healthcare transformation underlines the need for redesigning care that is safe, effective and efficient.  “The nurses have the mandate to launch initiatives for maximizing to deliver the evidence-base practice fully. Such initiatives include education and curricula realignment, practice adoption, scientific engagement in the fields of research, model and theory development and development of a national research network” (Newhouse & Spring, 2010). In this paper, the evidence-based practice looks at research findings, improvement of the quality of data as well as forms of evaluation of data, and finding the methods of improvement.  It will help to bridge the gap between the research being conducted and the practice.

Evidence-based practice involvement

In the past, we had several patients in our hospital whose conditions are critical, and many of those cases have been dying in my hands. It is until recently that we realized the importance so using evidence-based research in carrying out diagnosis early enough to better handle those cases. The hospital drew its attention to the usage of neural networks to help diagnosis people and to identify signs to issues in their health and make early interventions. We now have the staff concerned about the inpatients and the other for outpatients where I have had involvement. When we identify cases requiring attention we can call individuals and then visit them at their homes especially the old and the poor. That has been saving us the bed capacity overstretching that was commonplace before. The care I provided had its basis in evidence-based practice because it a new field that is not common with many hospitals and that helps to make improvement in the healthcare provision. It also gave positive results because the number of hospitalized patients and those dying has been significantly reducing.

The particular questions I have regarding evidence-based diagnosis of patients and outpatient care provision in the improvement of healthcare provision are many. They include whether the practice has a significant impact on the healthcare sector, the particular percentage by which it can lessen the death tools and hospitalizations, and how it can reduce costs of treatment. Another question is how the diagnosis can be feasible if the sector in question opts for it.

Background questions

  • How does early diagnosis improve health care provision
  • What are the reactions of patients to monitoring their bodies for illnesses or injuries?
  • How does it integrate into other systems in the healthcare sector?
  • What evidence is there that usage of neural networks in healthcare provision can help improve the quality of services offered by practitioners?

PICOT question

How does early intervention based on early diagnosis of patients using neural networks better improve the care and treatment compared to normal diagnosis within the period of one year?

Barriers to implementation of evidence-based practice

One of tea barriers of implementation of the evidence-based practice in the clinical services includes the failure to understand the statistical terms and technical jargons used in many of the research articles. That kind of unfamiliarity with the statistical as well as research terminologies could be a serious barrier to especially to nurses with certificate or diploma in nursing who have no exposure to such jargon (Mallory, 2010). What is in requirement is a well-designed training program so as to overcome this kind of problem. There is also the problem of inadequate search skills on this particular topic given the inadequate coverage of the available information-related competencies and articles. Nurses need to have good searching skills so as to retrieve quickly current, accurate and relevant information.

Barrier: having limited time on the job to implement new ideas (Shaheen, 2011)

That limitation on time to implement new ideas is evident in my organization, and so a remedy is in the requirement. The plan for overcoming this barrier is to ensure that there is a research team committed to researching and proposing new techniques in the clinical practice. Those ideas and techniques should have their basis in the evidence-based practice. The nurses also should undergo further training to equip themselves with knowledge of the upcoming evidence-based clinical practices. Nurses should have the authority to make suggestions for improvements if the new ideas and techniques presented are helpful to the organization.
