Problem, Purpose, and Questions: Evidence-Based Practice Proposal
The final capstone project is a series of written research-based assignments completed throughout this course that culminate in a final evidenced-based proposal paper and presentation. For this first assignment, you will select the topic for your evidence-based intervention project.
Investigate a health care issue or problem in your area of disciple that can be improved by implementing an evidence-based intervention. The resolution of this problem or issue should support or improve patient care. Use the PICO format to develop a PICO question (clinical question) for your proposed evidence-based intervention project. Refer to the “PICO Guide” to help guide you through this process.
In a formal paper of 500-750 words, address the following:
- Describe the health care issue or problem you selected. Explain why it is a problem in your discipline.
- Describe the target population for your intervention and explain how the population is affected by this issue or problem.
- Based on the results of your PICO formatting, draft one or two questions for your proposed topic. These questions will be the basis for your implementation plan.
You are required to cite to a minimum of three peer-reviewed or scholarly sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be published within the last 5 years and appropriate for the assignment criteria and health care setting.
