To ensure that an evidence-based practice is working, it is important to evaluate the program routinely. Developing measurable and actionable goals will greatly assist in this process. Taking a step back to look at the progress of the program can be very beneficial in making modifications as needed for ongoing success. Any issues identified do not mean the program is a failure. Instead, it indicates areas that may need attention.
In Week 2, you examined the importance of evidence-based practice in general as well as the value of consumer involvement. You also explored the benefits and limitations of using evidence-based practices for chronic diseases and conditions at a population level. This week, you will apply insights on evidence-based practice to the specific chronic disease or condition at a population level that you selected for your Final Project.
For this Discussion:
Review the week’s Resources.
Conduct a search for evidence-based practices related to your Final Project topic.
BY DAY 3
Post a comprehensive explanation of how evidence-based practices might improve population health outcomes for the chronic disease or condition at the population level you selected for your Final Project. Then, explain how evidence-based practices might provide a better return on investment (ROI) for effective prevention and care management for the chronic disease or condition at the population level you selected for your Final Project. Be specific and provide examples in your post.
Evidence-based practice is a strategy adopted by nurses to assess the best practice based on the evidence available to take care of the patients. Different patients have different needs; this indicates that there is a need to care for each patient based on the evidence available as it enables the health providers to offer the best and quality services to the patients.
