Assignment: Literature Review: The Use of Clinical Systems to Improve Outcomes and Efficiencies( NURS 6051

Assignment: Literature Review: The Use of Clinical Systems to Improve Outcomes and Efficiencies
New technology—and the application of existing technology—only appears in healthcare settings after careful and significant research. The stakes are high, and new clinical systems need to offer evidence of a positive impact on outcomes or efficiencies.

Nurse informaticists and healthcare leaders formulate clinical system strategies. As these strategies are often based on technology trends, informaticists and others have then benefited from consulting existing research to inform their thinking.

In this Assignment, you will review existing research focused on the application of clinical systems. After reviewing, you will summarize your findings.

To Prepare:

Review the Resources and reflect on the impact of clinical systems on outcomes and efficiencies within the context of nursing practice and healthcare delivery.
Conduct a search for recent (within the last 5 years) research focused on the application of clinical systems. The research should provide evidence to support the use of one type of clinical system to improve outcomes and/or efficiencies, such as “the use of personal health records or portals to support patients newly diagnosed with diabetes.”
Identify and select 5 peer-reviewed articles from your research.
The Assignment: (4-5 pages)

In a 4- to 5-page paper, synthesize the peer-reviewed research you reviewed. Be sure to address the following:

Identify the 5 peer-reviewed articles you reviewed, citing each in APA format.
Summarize each study, explaining the improvement to outcomes, efficiencies, and lessons learned from the application of the clinical system each peer-reviewed article described. Be specific and provide examples

Rubric:77 (77%) – 85 (85%)
The responses accurately and clearly identify 5 peer-reviewed research articles for the Assignment.

The responses accurately and thoroughly summarize in detail each study reviewed, explaining in detail the improvement to outcomes, efficiencies, and lessons learned from the application of the clinical system each peer-reviewed article described.

Specific, accurate, and detailed examples are provided which fully support the responses.

Assignment: Advocating for the Nursing Role in Program Design and Implementation

As their names imply, the honeyguide bird and the honey badger both share an affinity for honey. Honeyguide birds specialize in finding beehives but struggle to access the honey within. Honey badgers are well-equipped to raid beehives but cannot always find them. However, these two honey-loving species have learned to collaborate on an effective means to meet their objectives. The honeyguide bird guides honey badgers to newly discovered hives. Once the honey badger has ransacked the hive, the honey guide bird safely enters to enjoy the leftover honey.

Much like honeyguide birds and honey badgers, nurses and health professionals from other specialty areas can—and should—collaborate to design effective programs. Nurses bring specialties to the table that make them natural partners to professionals with different specialties. When nurses take the requisite leadership in becoming involved throughout the healthcare system, these partnerships can better design and deliver highly effective programs that meet objectives.

In this Assignment, you will practice this type of leadership by advocating for a healthcare program. Equally as important, you will advocate for a collaborative role of the nurse in the design and implementation of this program. To do this, assume you are preparing to be interviewed by a professional organization/publication regarding your thoughts on the role of the nurse in the design and implementation of new healthcare programs.

To Prepare:

Review the Resources and reflect on your thinking regarding the role of the nurse in the design and implementation of new healthcare programs.
Select a healthcare program within your practice and consider the design and implementation of this program.
Reflect on advocacy efforts and the role of the nurse in relation to healthcare program design and implementation.
The Assignment: (2–3 pages)

In a 2- to 3-page paper, create an interview transcript of your responses to the following interview questions:

Tell us about a healthcare program, within your practice. What are the costs and projected outcomes of this program?
Who is your target population?
What is the role of the nurse in providing input for the design of this healthcare program? Can you provide examples?
What is your role as an advocate for your target population for this healthcare program? Do you have input into design decisions? How else do you impact design?
What is the role of the nurse in healthcare program implementation? How does this role vary between design and implementation of healthcare programs? Can you provide examples?
Who are the members of a healthcare team that you believe are most needed to implement a program? Can you explain why?

Nursing Reflection

I had a pt with aortic aneurysms.. in the morning I did physical assessment, help the with medication, rounds, Collect vital sign, provide care to the patient.

Reflective Clinical Journal

Submit your graded reflective journals.

Throughout the Nursing Practicum clinical rotation, students will be evaluated based on their ability to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to provide safe client and family centered care. The clinical instructor will review and respond to student with his or her critique on each written journal to further assist the student and verify that students are meeting the course objectives.

This is a reflective paper, and the use of “I” statements is expected as you describe how your actions met course and your personal objectives. The journal entries must be in sufficient depth that reflects the student’s clinical experience accurately. APA format and clear writing style are expected. Each journal must include a reference page that includes at references utilized by the student during clinical hours

Purpose of the Reflective Clinical Journals

The written clinical journals provide an opportunity to verify that students are meeting STU Undergraduate School of Nursing Learning Outcomes 1-7, critical and creative thinking, quantitative reasoning, scientific and information literacy, communication, diversity, and integration of learning.

Guidelines and instructions

Students will submit a weekly journal starting the third week of clinical.

At the end of each clinical experience, students will submit a written reflective clinical journal on Canvas for evaluation. Students will describe their clinical experience day by providing exemplars of the care they rendered to their clients and how their care was achieved.

The clinical reflective journals must include the following:

personal clinical learning goals/objectives,
client profile(s), HIPPA requirements must be followed to protect client privacy,
Descriptions of the care rendered to the client (s) and how it was achieved using the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) Core Competencies.
a discussion of how goals were met or not met, strengths/needs,
a reflection,
Recommendation of changes in how you would function as a newly graduated BSN
must be 2-3 pages in length, pages that exceed the limit will NOT be read and further points may be removed if critical content was included on the excess pages
Precise APA format that includes correct punctuation, spelling, sentence structure, and references. The “easy” online APA software has errors and should NOT be used.
type, Times Roman, 12-point font, and double-spaced,
a reference page with at least 3 recent (not older than 5 years) peer-reviewed nursing articles, books, drug book/guide, laboratory and diagnostics manual, policy & procedure manual, and
Submit the assignment on canvas by the due date.
Falsification and/or fabrication of journal entries and /or clinical hours are examples of academic dishonesty that will result in immediate failure of the course.
