Capstone Proposal Writing: [Nursing] : Preventing Healthcare acquired infections in the outpatient setting

Below are my assignment instructions titled Assignement #1 and Assignment #2- I have already written a topic selection of Preventing Healthcare acquired infections in the outpatient setting

 

I have been researching studies that relate to this in some way because I will need to find 8 studies that I can use for the next assignment in my literature evaluation table. My concern is finding enough studies to support the PICOT statement. Any help is appreciated but it must be about preventing HAI’s in the outpatient setting. (Please review directions for assignment #1 and 2 to help determine picot statement and type of articles/studies needed)

 

I would like my PICOT statement to reflect something along the lines below with supporting studies?: I just need to pick one intervention alone. But I’m for discussing any other ideas

 

P I C O T
For Health care staff in outpatient setting What is the difference in knowledge of safe injection practices Compared with no education or limited education On the Reduction of healthcare acquired infections ?
For health care staff in out patient setting What is the difference of multimodal education on a) handwashing

Or

b) disinfecting of reusable equipment

or

C) safe injection practices

Compared with written education alone In reducing HAI’s ?

 

 

Assignment #1- UniversityInstruction for PICOT Statement Paper

 

Formulate a PICOT statement for your capstone project.

A PICOT starts with a designated patient population in a particular clinical area and identifies clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care. The intervention should be an independent, specified nursing change intervention. The intervention cannot require a provider prescription. Include a comparison to a patient population not currently receiving the intervention, and specify the timeframe needed to implement the change process.

Formulate a PICOT statement using the PICOT format provided in the assigned readings. The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your capstone project.

In a paper of 500-750 words, clearly identify the clinical problem and how it can result in a positive patient outcome. 3-5 references to be used.

Make sure to address the following on the PICOT statement:

  1. Evidence-Based Solution
  2. Nursing Intervention
  3. Patient Care
  4. Health Care Agency
  5. Nursing Practice

Assignment #2-

Literature Evaluation Table  

In nursing practice, accurate identification and application of research is essential to achieving successful outcomes. Being able to articulate the information and successfully summarize relevant peer-reviewed articles in a scholarly fashion helps to support the student’s ability and confidence to further develop and synthesize the progressively more complex assignments that constitute the components of the course change proposal capstone project.

For this assignment, the student will provide a synopsis of eight peer-reviewed articles from nursing journals using an evaluation table that determines the level and strength of evidence for each of the eight articles. The articles should be current within the last 5 years and closely relate to the PICOT statement developed earlier in this course. The articles may include quantitative research, descriptive analyses, longitudinal studies, or meta-analysis articles. A systematic review may be used to provide background information for the purpose or problem identified in the proposed capstone project. Use the “Literature Evaluation Table” resource to complete this assignment.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
