After the data have been analyzed, conclusions are made regarding what the findings mean. Then, this information must be shared with your healthcare team.

  1. Choose one of the articles from the Week 5 RRL assignment, and discuss the findings. Would you apply the evidence found to your practice? Explain your answer.
  2. Translating research into practice is the final and most important step in the research process. Review information you found your nursing clinical issue and explain ways in which you would share the research-based evidence with your peers.

Hello class,

After the data have been analyzed, conclusions are made regarding what the findings mean. Then, this information must be shared with your healthcare team.

Choose one of the articles from the RRL assignment, and discuss the findings. Would you apply the evidence found to your practice? Explain your answer, please.

Translating research into practice is the final and most important step in the research process. Review information you found in your Week 3 Assignment, and explain ways in which you would share the research-based evidence with your peers.

As you evaluate results reported in the articles, consider using the 4 rules that we discussed last week. It is very important to identify the purpose of the study before moving forward with the evaluation of the results. If the study has an intervention or treatment, then it is likely that there will be dependent and independent variables (Chamberlain College of Nursing, 2017). The next step focuses on identification of data collection methods and how investigators measured these variables. Furthermore, discussion and conclusion sections of the report offer an interpretation of study results and may even incorporate investigators’ opinions or speculations regarding the findings (Chamberlain College of Nursing, 2017).

A well-written research report contains strengths and limitations. Concerns with study limitations are especially important when investigators report results from a pilot study. Pilot studies are often designed to preliminary test the intervention to identify potential benefits; however, as we acknowledged, results from such a study are very hard to generalize to a greater population. Pay special attention to the sample selection for the study and resources needed to implement the proposed change. Last week we discovered that even though some results appear to be statistically significant, they may not have any clinical significance. Think about other barriers or challenges you might encounter while implementing a change and how you would overcome those challenges. Thank you, Dr.

“Making Sense of a New Technology in Clinical Practice: A Qualitative Study of Patient and Physician Perspectives,” is the paper I chose for the Week 5 RRL assignment. The goal of this study was to see how physicians and patients at a specialist diabetic clinic felt about new technology that identifies Cardiovascular Autonomic Neuropathy (CAN). When new practices are deployed, it is critical to investigate both the physician’s and the patient’s comprehension of the technique or technology. The clinicians have trouble communicating the complexities of the Cardiovascular Autonomic Neuropathy test and its results to patients. Because the physicians were not able to explain the information, the patients were not influenced to modify their physical behavior or diet. According to the authors, the study suggests that open-communication and respect during communication with the patients would more likely yield positive results.

The findings from this study are reference a Cardiovascular Autonomic Neuropathy test but could be applied to the use of any new equipment. Per Houser, for the research to be trustworthy, it must have credibility, confirmability, dependability, and transferability (Houser, 2018, p. 393). I believe this evidence is trustworthy and could be applied in my practice. As a member of the medical team, we are constantly obtaining new equipment and learning how to use it. Recently, a sales representative brought a new high flow oxygen system into our Emergency Department for the medical team to trial. The purpose of the system is to decrease the need for bi-pap. For a patient that has never seen this machine, education must be given prior to using it or the patient may feel anxious. If the provider does not have a good understanding of how the machine works, he cannot explain the process to the patient.

My clinical issue from week three was compassion fatigue in the Emergency Department. I would review the statistical data that I obtained through the study. I would make a PowerPoint presentation and email it to the department. I would then follow-up with each person individually to ensure that he / she understands the information contained in the PowerPoint. If the statistical data shows that education decreases compassion fatigue amongst staff, I will educate the rest of the department. I will also make sure that all new-hires from this point forward are given the education during new employee unit-based orientation. The most significant barrier that I can foresee is that people often resist changes.
