Evidence-based practice

Question Description: In order to formulate your evidence-based practice (EBP), you need to assess your organization. In this assignment, you will be responsible for setting the stage for EBP. This assignment is conducted in two parts: an organizational cultural and readiness assessment and the proposal/problem statement and literature review, which you completed in NUR-550.

Section A: Organizational Culture and Readiness Assessment

It is essential to understand the culture of the organization in order to begin assessing its readiness for EBP implementation. Select an appropriate organizational culture survey tool and use this instrument to assess the organization’s readiness.

Develop an analysis of 250 words from the results of the survey, addressing your organization’s readiness level, possible project barriers and facilitators, and how to integrate clinical inquiry, providing strategies that strengthen the organization’s weaker areas.
Make sure to include the rationale for the survey category scores that were significantly high and low, incorporating details or examples. Explain how to integrate clinical inquiry into the organization.
Submit a summary of your results. The actual survey results do not need to be included.
Section B: Proposal/Problem Statement and Literature Review

In NUR-550, you developed a PICOT statement and literature review for a population quality initiative. In 500-750 words, include the following:

Refine your PICOT into a proposal or problem statement.
PICOT statement-Will providing continuing education on racial disparity and racism in healthcare to staff members along with fostering cultural sensitivity help prevent racially induced healthcare disparities within one years’ time?

Provide a summary of the research you conducted to support your PICOT, including subjects, methods, key findings, and limitations.

Answer preview
In this case, a review of different research articles was done to find out the causes of the stress among nurses and identify the efficacy of the implementation of nurse education, online stress management program, and work-life balance in preventing stress management programs.  The criterion used to select the articles include topic relevance and year of publication. In their study, Hersch, Cook, Deitz, Kaplan, Hughes, Friesen, & Vezina (2016) were assessing the efficacy of the web-based Breath program in managing the stress among nursing staff.  In their study, they included 104 nurses employed by big health facilities in suburban Virginia.   The age of participants was between 22 and 65 years.  The mean age was 41years. Out of the total participants, 87.5 percent were female, and 65 percent were Caucasian.   Hersch et al. (2016) separated the participants into two groups; experimental and control groups.
