Introduction Evidence-based practice (EBP) integrates the best evidence availabl

Introduction
Evidence-based practice (EBP) integrates the best evidence available to guide optimal nursing care, with a goal to enhance safety and quality. EBP is crucial to nursing practice because it incorporates the best evidence from current literature, along with the expertise of the practicing nurse. The concern for quality care that flows from EBP generates a desired outcome. Without these factors, a nurse cannot be an effective leader. It is important to lead not only from this position but from knowledge and expertise. To gain the knowledge, you require a good understanding of how to search for scholarly resources, as well as identify which databases and websites are credible for the purposes of implementing evidence-based changes in practice.
Your Online e-Portfolio
Creating an ePortfolio is not required in the BSN program, but you may find it helpful to create one to attach to your professional resume while job hunting. Online ePortfolios serve two key purposes: 1) to support learning and reflection, and 2) to be used as a showcase tool. Your learning journey can be documented, and ePortfolios contribute to lifelong learning and growth through reflection and sharing. Online ePortfolios can also be shared with employers and peers to present artifacts that demonstrate your accomplishments at Capella.
Professional Context
As a baccalaureate-prepared nurse, you will be responsible for providing patient-centered, competent care based on current evidence-based best practices. You will be required to do research, analysis, and dissemination of best evidence to stay abreast of these best practices. Understanding where to go to find credible sources and locate evidence, as well as which search terms to use, is the foundation of incorporation of best practices.
Scenario
You are supervising three nurses working on the medical-surgical floor of a local teaching hospital. This hospital is nationally recognized as a leader in education and has a computer lab with an online library where staff has access to medical research databases (that is, CINAHL, PubMed, Medline, and Cochrane library) and online sources of all hospital policies, procedures, and guidelines, and computers at nurse workstations that also have access to these resources. (For this scenario, use the Capella University Library to simulate the hospital’s online library.) You have given the nurses their patient assignments and you have all participated in shift report. A new nurse who just completed orientation and training a week ago approaches you and tells you that one of the assigned patients has a diagnosis he or she is very unfamiliar with. Knowing that patient-centered care based on best practices is imperative to positive patient outcomes, you want to assist this nurse to find research that can be utilized to provide the best care for this patient. Describe how you would communicate with this nurse to encourage him or her to research the diagnosis. Assume you will assist in the quest to locate evidence, then describe where you would go within the facility and what resources you would look for. These resources may include websites, journals, facility policies or guidelines, or any other sources of online information.
You may choose the diagnosis for the patient in this scenario or health care issue/diagnosis of your choice. Or you may choose something you would find interesting to research or that applies to a clinical problem/diagnosis you would be interested in addressing. Create a list of at least five sources that could be used to find evidence, with the best source listed first, and explain why the sources you chose are best to find evidence for the diagnosis you chose and the clinical scenario. You are only evaluating the sources of evidence (database, website, policy database or website, journal article, et cetera). You are not actually completing a search and selecting evidence. Consider the following examples: a nursing journal in CINAHL may not be the best source of evidence for information on how to administer medications through a central-venous catheter, whereas a hospital policy database found on a website may not be the best source of information on caring for a patient with a rare chromosomal abnormality.
Preparation
To help ensure you are prepared to complete this assessment, review the following resources related to the Capella library. These resources will provide you an overview of the types of tools, resources, and guides available in the library. This may be useful in forming a better understanding of the library to apply to the hypothetical situation laid out in the scenario of this assessment.

Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing & Health Sciences.
Databases A-Z: Nursing & Health Sciences.
Get Critical Search Skills.
Remember, it is also appropriate to look toward databases and resources outside of the Capella library, such as organizational policies, professional organizations, and government health care resources.
You are encouraged to complete the Evaluating the Credibility of Evidence activity. This activity offers an opportunity to practice evaluating the credibility of evidence. These skills will be necessary to complete Assessment 1 successfully and is for your own practice and self-assessment. Completing this activity is also a way to demonstrate course engagement.
Instructions
The purpose of this assessment is to understand where to find evidence that can be applied to clinical scenarios and to learn effective communication and collaboration with clinical staff during the process of evidence location. As a baccalaureate-prepared nurse, you will not only use research for self-improvement in your clinical role, but you will also serve as a mentor to supervised nursing staff. Therefore, you will need to be able to communicate and collaborate effectively to guide them toward resources to find research, as well as support them through the initial evidence location process. In doing so, nurses can gain access to evidence that can be analyzed and utilized to stay current on best practices. This allows them to provide safe, patient-centered care and improve patient outcomes.
For this assessment:
Describe your role as a baccalaureate-prepared nurse supervising clinical staff nurses with regard to communication and collaboration in locating evidence for application to a nursing practice scenario.
Compile a list of five online databases or other online sources (that is, websites, journals, facility policies or guidelines, et cetera) that can be used to research evidence to apply to this scenario or clinical practice issue/diagnosis and describe to which of these you would direct a nurse colleague to search for evidence.
Describe where you might go in the work place to complete this research and how you would access the desired, relevant research within research databases or other online sources.
Be sure to address the following in this assessment, which correspond to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. Please study the scoring guide carefully so that you will know what is needed for a distinguished score.
Describe communication strategies to encourage nurses to research the diagnosis/practice issue, as well as strategies to collaborate with the nurses to access resources.
Describe the best places to complete research and what types of resources you would want to access to find pertinent information for the diagnosis/health care issue within the context of a specific health care setting.
Identify five sources of online information (medical journal databases, websites, hospital policy databases, et cetera) that could be used to locate evidence for a clinical diagnosis/practice issue.
Explain why the sources of online information selected should provide the best evidence for the chosen diagnosis/health care issue.
Communicate using writing that is clear, logical, and professional with correct grammar and spelling using current APA style.
Note: While you are not selecting and evaluating specific evidence to help with the clinical diagnosis/practice issue, you should still be citing the literature and best practices to support your descriiption of your communication and collaboration approach. Additionally, it is appropriate to cite best practices related to EBP and evaluating databases to support your explanation as to why you selected the five sources of online information that you did.
Example Assessment: You may use the following to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like:
Assessment 1 Example [PDF].

The task is to select one of Haydn’s many symphonies and compose a historical an

The task is to select one of Haydn’s many symphonies and compose a historical and analytical essay that guides a first-time listener through the experience. Your first step should be to select a symphony. The best way to do this is to listen to representative samples. Try one from the 40s on for size. Many of these are quite dramatic and anticipate romanticism. Or you could select an early symphony, say, the ‘Morning’ symphony. The many nicknames that are latched like mollusks to the hull of the repertoire are often misleading and, as far as I know, none originate with the composer. They can nevertheless be an excuse for a listen. Keep in mind that many of Haydn’s finest symphonies do not have nicknames. If you want a particularly rich symphony, bursting with details to mine, check out one of the so-called ‘Paris’ symphonies. If for no other reason than because you can listen to Leonard Bernstein conduct them.
Once you have a symphony you like picked out, read through the entry on Haydn on Oxford Music Online (https://www.oxfordmusiconline.com/ Links to an external site.). You have access to this through the library, and should you need help finding it, check this out: https://guides.lib.uci.edu/music. [Starting with this encyclopedia when you have a music historical question is just good musicological safety sense.] Then you might look through the entry on the symphony. You could contextualize your piece with respect to both its composer’s development and the development of the genre. Haydn plays a big role in the latter, after all. You can also look for scholarly articles on JSTOR. There are also monographs in the library devoted to these pieces. You would do well to check this out! You will want to make it to the Haydn section of the ML410s in the stacks before you complete this paper. Just seeing the secondary literature about a figure on the shelf can help orient you to how much is out there and what kind of material it encompasses.
Your next step is to take the piece apart. After this week’s listening and lectures (and from doing a bunch of listening around to choose your symphony), you should have a good idea about what is business as usual for the genre (beginning and ending on the topic, or containing a slow movement). This allows you to tell what is particular to this symphony. You have already practiced this with Symphony 45 this week. What makes this symphony stand out? How does Haydn set up expectations? Does he include an effect?
You’ll know you’re done when you feel satisfied that the reader of your paper will be well-served by your document when they step into the concert hall.
Aim for 1500 words. But don’t overestimate the importance of a word count. Your papers will be graded on their meeting the criterion just stated.

CASE:
The patient, Mrs. Maria Perez, is a 53-year-old Puerto Rican female who has presented for consultation regarding a personal issue she finds sensitive in nature.
The client reports a history of alcohol use disorder dating back to her late teens and involvement with Alcoholics Anonymous over the past 25 years, with increased difficulty maintaining sobriety since the opening of a nearby casino. She describes a high associated with gambling and an increased frequency of drinking and cigarette smoking while gambling, as well as concerns about the health effects of the smoking. Despite attempts at abstinence, the client reports feeling the need for alcohol during gambling activities. She has also experienced weight gain from excessive drinking. The client expresses concern about having borrowed a substantial sum from her retirement account to pay off gambling debts without her husband’s knowledge
The patient is a 53-year-old Puerto Rican female who is conscious and oriented to her surroundings. She is dressed appropriately for the weather and the season. Her speech is clear and coherent, with a clear goal. Her eye contact during the clinical interview is somewhat limited, but her mannerisms, gestures, and tics are not notable. She reports feeling “sad” and her affect is consistent with her reported mood. There is no evidence of hallucinations or delusional thinking, and her insight and judgment appear to be intact. However, she has an impaired ability to control her impulses. There are no reported suicidal or homicidal ideations at this time.
Diagnosis: Gambling Disorder, Alcohol Use Disorder.
– Briefly explain and summarize the case for this Assignment. Be sure to include the specific patient factors that may impact your decision making when prescribing medication for this patient.
Decision #1
After a thorough history and physical from the patient, the diagnosis is gambling disorder and alcohol use disorder. Select what the PMHNP should do:
• Naltrexone (Vivitrol) injection, 380 mg intramuscularly in the gluteal region
every 4 weeks
• Antabuse (Disulfiram) 250 mg orally daily
• Campral (Acamprosate) 666 mg orally three times/day
My decision: Naltrexone (Vivitrol) injection, 380 mg intramuscularly in the gluteal region
every 4 weeks (BASE ANSWER ON THIS DECISION)
RESULTS OF DECISION POINT ONE
Client returns to clinic in four weeks. Mrs. Perez says she feels “wonderful” as she has not “touched a drop” of alcohol since receiving the injection. Client reports that she has not been going to the casino, as frequently, but when she does go she “drops a bundle” (meaning, spends a lot of money gambling). Client She is also still smoking, which has her concerned. She is also reporting some problems with anxiety, which also has her concerned
• Why did you select this decision? Be specific and support your response with clinically relevant and patient-specific resources, including the primary literature.
• Why did you not select the other two options provided in the exercise? Be specific and support your response with clinically relevant and patient-specific resources, including the primary literature.
• What were you hoping to achieve by making this decision? Support your response with evidence and references to the Learning Resources (including the primary literature).
• Explain how ethical considerations may impact your treatment plan and communication with patients. Be specific and provide examples.
Decision #2
Select what the PMHNP should do next:
• Add on Valium (diazepam) 5 mg orally TID/PRN/anxiety
• Refer to a counselor to address gambling issues
• Add on Chantix (varenicline) 1 mg orally BID
My decision: Refer to a counselor to address gambling issues (BASE ANSWER ON THIS DECISION)
RESULTS OF DECISION POINT TWO
Mrs. Perez returns in 4 weeks and reports that the anxiety that she had been experiencing is gone. She reports that she has met with the counselor, but she did not really like her. She also started going to a local meeting of Gamblers Anonymous. She states that last week, for the first time, she spoke during the meeting. She reports feeling supported in this group.
• Why did you select this decision? Be specific and support your response with clinically relevant and patient-specific resources, including the primary literature.
• Why did you not select the other two options provided in the exercise? Be specific and support your response with clinically relevant and patient-specific resources, including the primary literature.
• What were you hoping to achieve by making this decision? Support your response with evidence and references to the Learning Resources (including the primary literature).
• Explain how ethical considerations may impact your treatment plan and communication with patients. Be specific and provide examples.
Decision #3
Select what the PMHNP should do next:
• Explore the issue that Mrs. Perez is having with her counselor, and encourage her to continue attending the Gamblers Anonymous meetings
• Encourage Mrs. Perez to continue seeing her current counselor as well as continuing the Gamblers Anonymous group
• Discontinue Vivitrol. Encourage Mrs. Perez to continue seeing her counselor and to continue participating in the Gamblers Anonymous group
My decision: Explore the issue that Mrs. Perez is having with her counselor, and encourage her to continue attending the Gamblers Anonymous meetings (BASE ANSWER ON THIS DECISION)
Guidance to Student
Although controversy exists in the literature regarding how long to maintain a client on Vivitrol, 8 weeks is probably too soon to consider discontinuation. The psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner should explore the issues that Mrs. Perez is having with her counselor. As will be covered in more depth in future courses, ruptures in the therapeutic alliance can result in clients stopping therapy. Clearly, if the client does not continue with therapy, the likelihood of the gambling problem spontaneously remitting is lower (than had the client continued to receive therapy). Recall that there are no FDA-approved treatments for gambling addiction. The mainstay of treatment for this disorder is counseling. Since Mrs. Perez reports good perceived support from the Gamblers Anonymous meetings, she should be encouraged to continue her participation with this group.
You need to discuss smoking cessation options with Mrs. Perez in order to address the totality of addictions, and to enhance her overall health.
• Why did you select this decision? Be specific and support your response with clinically relevant and patient-specific resources, including the primary literature.
• Why did you not select the other two options provided in the exercise? Be specific and support your response with clinically relevant and patient-specific resources, including the primary literature.
• What were you hoping to achieve by making this decision? Support your response with evidence and references to the Learning Resources (including the primary literature).
• Explain how ethical considerations may impact your treatment plan and communication with patients. Be specific and provide examples.
CONCLUSION:
– Summarize your recommendations on the treatment options you selected for this patient. Be sure to justify your recommendations and support your response with clinically relevant and patient-specific resources, including the primary literature.

Week 6: Area of Interest Power Point Presentation
Start Assignment
Due Feb 19 by 11:59pm Points 175 Submitting a file upload
Purpose
The process for affecting positive change to improve practice outcomes can start with either the identification of an area of interest or the identification of a potential or existing practice problem. Selecting an area of interest helps to define a direction for further inquiry. The purpose of this assessment is for students to identify and discuss an area of interest specific to advanced practice nursing. Students will identify a common practice problem related to the selected area of interest and provide a recommendation to affect positive change. Students will build on this project in later courses.
Note: The purpose of the MSN project is to translate evidence currently found in the literature into practice within the chosen specialty track. Due to the research complexity, time involvement, and implications regarding human subjects, drug studies are not acceptable areas of interest for an MSN project.
Activity Learning Outcomes
Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:
Examine roles and competencies of advanced practice nurses essential to performing as leaders and advocates of holistic, safe, and quality care. (CO1)
Analyze essential skills needed to lead within the context of complex systems. (CO3)
