Capella BSN4016 Unit 2 Discussion 1 & 2

Evidence-Based Practice

Resources

  • Nurses must be able to understand the application of evidence-based research in their nursing practices. This type of research requires nurses to evaluate outcomes while using evidence-based practices. The readings in this unit demonstrate that evidence-based practice is part of nearly everything we do in nursing and they are meant to have you think about it from many angles. After reading about the use of evidence-based research in nursing:
  • Describe an example of how you currently use evidence-based practice in your workplace.
  • Offer a rationale for this practice.

Response Guidelines

Respond to the post of one of your peers. Your response should indicate that you have read the weekly readings and contain at least one reference. Additionally, make sure that your response is in accordance with any of the established faculty expectations. Always be sure to follow proper APA style and formatting for any citations and references.

  • Identify a specific disease or condition you have worked with in the past and discuss the current pharmacological treatments used.

  • Describe the protocols, guidelines, and evidence-based practices that are in place in your current or past work place (be sure to maintain confidentiality of your work place) to assist nurses in evaluating quality patient outcomes.
