Application 3: Becoming a Leader in the Translation of Evidence to Practice
Assignment: Application 3: Becoming a Leader in the Translation of Evidence to Practice This week you begin working on Application 3. As a nurse engaged in advanced practice, you have the exciting opportunity to be a leader in translating evidence into practice. For this first section of Application 3, consider the economic and financial implications of addressing your EBP Assignment issue. In addition, reflect on your leadership skills. As a DNP-prepared nurse, you are expected to employ the principles of business, finance, and health policy in the development of initiatives that will improve the quality of care delivered. Prepare for this week’s section of Application 3 as follows: Continue (from this week’s Discussion) to evaluate the new strategies you developed to address your selected issue and the potential economic impact. Review Chapter 6 in the course text, Translation of Evidence Into Nursing and Health Care Practice, and ask yourself the following: How are these activities enhancing my leadership skills? How does translating evidence enable me, as a leader, to affect or strengthen health care delivery and my nursing practice? You will build on this Application next week as you look at advancing new approaches to practice through the policy process. To complete: Write a 3-page paper that synthesizes: Your vision of yourself as a leader—specifically: – How you would continue to increase your knowledge and awareness of financial, economic, and other concerns related to new practice approaches – How translating evidence would enable you to affect or strengthen health care delivery and nursing practice – How you would advocate for the use of new evidence-based practice approaches through the policy arena ***************Learning Resources*********************** Note: To access this week’s required library resources, please click on the link to the Course Readings List, found in the Course Materials section of your Syllabus.
