Evidence-Based Practice Proposal – Section A: Organizational Culture and Readiness Assessment.-Max point-60
Before making a case for an evidence-based project, it is essential to understand the culture of the organization in order to begin assessing its readiness for EBP implementation.
1 Complete the “Organizational Culture and Readiness for System-Wide Integration of Evidence-Based Practice Survey,” located in the textbook appendix.
2 Develop an analysis of 250 words from the results, addressing your organization’s readiness level, possible project barriers and facilitators, as well as how to integrate clinical inquiry.
3 Make sure to include the rationale for the survey categories scores that were significantly high and low, incorporating details and/or examples. Also explain how to integrate clinical inquiry into the organization, providing strategies that strengthen the organizations weaker areas.
4 Submit a summary of your results. The actual survey results do not need to be included.
Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines. An abstract is not required.
Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
· Organizational Culture and Readiness Assessment.
· Describe the results from the Organizational Culture and Readiness for System-Wide Integration of Evidence Practice Survey addressing the readiness level of your organization. Provide an analysis of any possible project barriers and facilitators, and describe how to integrate clinical inquiry into your organization.
Evidence-Based Practice Proposal – Section B: Problem Description. Max point-60
Write a paper of 500-750 words (not including the title page and reference page) on your proposed problem description for your EBP project. The paper should address the following:
5 Describe the background of the problem. Tell the story of the issue and why it deserves attention.
6 Identify the stakeholders/change agents. Who, or what organizations, are concerned, may benefit from, or are affected by this proposal. List the interested parties, patients, students, agencies, Joint Commission, etc.
7 Use the feedback from the Topic 2 main forum post and refine your PICOT question. Make sure that the question fits with your graduate degree specialization.
8 State the purpose and project objectives in specific, realistic, and measurable terms. The objective should address what is to be gained. This is a restatement of the question, providing focus. Measurements need to be taken before and after the evidence-based practice is introduced to identify the expected changes.
9 5) Provide supportive rationale that the problem or issue is an important one for nursing to resolve using relevant professional literature sources.
10 Develop an initial reference list to assure that there is adequate literature to support your evidence-based practice project. Follow the “Steps to an Efficient Search to Answer a Clinical Question” box in chapter 3 of the textbook. Use “NUR-699 Search Method Example” to assist you.
11 7) The majority of references should be research articles. However, national sources such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Department of Health and Human Resources (HHS), or the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and others may be used when you are gathering statistics to provide the rationale for the problem.
12 Once you get into the literature, you may find there is very little research to support your topic and you will have to start all over again. Remember, in order for this to be an evidence-based project, you must have enough evidence to introduce this as a practice change. If you find that you do not have enough supporting evidence to change a practice, then further research would need to be conducted.

Search Method Example
A comprehensive electronic search was completed using the following databases:
Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials
Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews
National Guideline Clearinghouse
The search included English-only published articles between 1990 and 2005.
Key words used in the search were:
Pediatric asthma education
Grade school children
Randomized controlled trials
Search results revealed 75 publications. The abstracts were screened and 10 studies were relevant to pediatric asthma education involving self-management, self-monitoring behaviors, self-efficacy, and educational programs with various interventions. These studies included three systematic reviews, five randomized control trials (RCT), one cohort descriptive study, and one qualitative study. Refer to Appendix A for a complete reference list.
