One of the exciting aspects of participating in the health care field is the discovery of new techniques, treatments, and technologies that improve the quality of care and improve health outcomes. As someone engaged in advanced nursing practice, you have the opportunity to search for new solutions to issues in your specialty area. What tools can you use to guide the discovery process? What needs to be considered as you determine new practice approaches to address issues in health care? This week, you consider new ways to address the EBP Project issue you identified in Week 2 see attached file).
- Reflect on your analysis of the evidence base that addresses your selected issue from the EBP Project (identified during Week 2 [see attached file]).
- Using methods articulated in the Learning Resources, formulate new evidence-based practice strategies to address the issue and improve health care quality.
- What are the theoretical bases for your proposed strategies?
- What might be the economic impact of implementing your proposed strategies?
By tomorrow Wednesday day 10/03/18 10:00 am, write an essay of a minimum of 550 words in APA format, and at least 3 scholarly references from the list of required readings below. Include all level one headers as numbered below:
Post a cohesive response that addresses the following:
1) Briefly summarize your selected issue (see my PIICOT question below & attached file) and propose new evidence-based practice strategies. Describe the theoretical basis for your strategies.
2) Discuss the potential economic impact of your suggested strategies.
3) How could the new practice strategies improve health care quality?

P: Adult patients
I: in extended intensive care within an urban acute care facility
I: increased mobilization of the patients
C: minimal mobilization of the patients
O: early transfers of the patients from intensive care
T: 6 months
