Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to identify a practice problem idea and an evidence-based intervention to address the practice problem idea. Data management is essential to drive actions and decisions to improve healthcare outcomes. The content will support the formulation of a literature synthesis related to your practice problem idea, which supports professional formulation, communication, and dissemination skills relevant to the DNP-prepared nurse.

Instructions

In order to create flexible options, we are providing you with options for this assignment. Concept maps are an effective way to express complex ideas, especially for visual learners. For this assignment, each of the following sections may be presented either as a narrative or concept map:

  • Practice Problem and PICOT Question
  • Evidence Synthesis of Literature
  • Data-Driven Decision Making

Please note you are not required to complete any or all of the sections identified as conceptual maps. If you choose to use a concept map for a section, it should be created in Microsoft Word using Smart Art and placed in that section of the paper under the associated first-level heading. The concept map must meet all the requirements outlined in the assignment rubric for each section. The rubric and page length is unchanged.

The assignment should include the following components. Contact course faculty for questions.

  1. Introduction
    1. Develop a focused one-sentence purpose statement.

  5. Conclusion (Write one concise paragraph.)
    1. Summarize the impact of the practice problem idea.
    2. Summarize the role of the evidence-based intervention to address the practice problem idea.
  6. References
    1. Identify and list four scholarly sources used in evidence synthesis on the reference pages.
    2. Identify and list other scholarly sources used in the paper on the reference pages.
    3. List scholarly sources in alphabetical order.
