As a nurse, you are the ultimate patient advocate (above and beyond all other health care providers). This advocacy means ensuring that all patients are cared for safely and with the best quality.
You have seen other nurses be effective change agents to improve patient care, and you would like to do the same. You know that your ideas for change will be more well-received if they are supported by scholarly evidence. Therefore, you must learn how to provide evidence for your suggestions to make the necessary changes for excellent patient care and high-quality outcomes. You have seen that scholarly evidence can persuade your superiors and the administration to change how things are done. This evidence will also help other staff understand the rationale behind the change that you desire.
Your goal is to make a case for a specific change in patient care or staff education, and develop a presentation based on the evidence that you gather.
You first step is to write a paper to inform your supervisor about the patient care issue that you feel could be improved, either through patient teaching or staff education. You will need to address the following:
Identify a patient care-related issue. Some examples of patient care-related issues are the following:
Maintaining a heart healthy diet
Adhering to a diabetic or renal diet
Need for diabetic foot care
Preventing pressure ulcers
Preventing urinary tract infections in catheterized patients
Proper hand washing techniques
Conducting hourly patient rounds
