This is the first of a two-part assignment. The second part of this assignment will be developed in NURS 495 or NURS 485.
For Part 1, based on the PICOT question you developed and the evidence you obtained in the literature, you will present a literature review based on the findings that address possible interventions for your identified clinical question.
For Part 2, (which will be completed in NURS 495or NURS 485), you will continue to develop your Quality Improvement (QI) Plan. In the second part of the paper, you will utilize the research that you conducted in this class to develop an implementation and evaluation plan for your identified patient care need. This will include identifying a timeline, stakeholders, responsibilities for implementation and feedback, identifying needed resources, outlining budgetary needs and developing an evaluation plan. Further information will be given in NURS 495 or NURS 485 on developing your plan, however it would be helpful to keep the requirements for the second part of the paper in mind when choosing your topic to research.
