Evaluating EBP Projects
Many factors influence how successfully an EBP Project is implemented and evaluated. As noted in this week’s Learning Resources, using a translation framework can facilitate effective implementation and the evaluation of outcomes.
As you complete Application 4, revisit the evidence-based practice model or framework you selected for your EBP Project (Application 2 [see attached file]). How does the model or framework facilitate the evaluation of outcomes? Would another model or framework better meet the needs of your project?
To prepare for this week’s section of Application 4:
- Continue (from this week’s Discussion[ use the discussion you are currently working on for me]) to:
- Identify an appropriate method for evaluating your outcomes.
- Develop new practice guidelines based on the possible results of the evaluation.
- Create, if appropriate, new standards of care that would be based on the new practice guidelines.
This paper should be written in APA format with a minimum of 8 scholarly references. All level 1 & 2 headers must be as in the grading rubric (see attached file). The paper must also include an introduction ending with a purpose statement and a conclusion as per APA guidelines. Do not go over the required maximum of 8-page. The Paper must be cited often and throughout.
The full Application 4 is due by Wednesday 10/31/18 before midgnight of this week. Instructions for how to prepare for previous sections of this Application have been provided in Weeks 8 and 9 (see attached files on WK8 & WK9 discussions you previously did for me).
To complete: (See attached Grading Rubric)
Write a 4- to 8-page paper that addresses the following:
1) Planning for EBP Change (see attached file on WK8 Discussion)
a) Analyze the impact of implementing change in your practice environment, including the factors that need to be considered regarding stakeholders and end users.
b) Summarize the methods you would use to ensure that those are adequately addressed.
2) Implementing EBP Projects (see attached file on WK9 Discussion)
a) Identify the desired outcomes of your EBP Project.
b) Describe any macro or micro systems issues that may inhibit implementation and strategies for resolving those issues.
c) Explain how resolving your EBP Project issue will improve quality and patient safety.
3) Evaluating EBP Projects (See this week Discussion you are currently working on)
a) Describe evaluation strategies.
b) Formulate new practice guidelines based on the possible results of the evaluation of outcomes.
c) Describe, if appropriate, new standards of care relevant to the new practice guidelines

In patients in extended intensive care within an urban acute care facility in Eastern United States, how does early mobilization as recommended by National Institute of Health and Care Excellence clinical guidelines on rehabilitation of patients after critical illness impact early transfers from intensive care as measured 6 months post-implementation when compared to the current standard of care including minimal mobilization of patients?
P: Adult patients
I: in extended intensive care within an urban acute care facility
I: increased mobilization of the patients
C: minimal mobilization of the patients
O: early transfers of the patients from intensive care
