The project should focus on a nursing-related problem related to nursing practice, advance practice, leadership, or education. Identify several topics of interest and have individual group members do a quick survey of the literature to be sure that there is sufficient evidence available.
In order to develop a guideline/protocol, you will need credible resources. The course readings include all of the information needed to complete this project. Chapters 1 and 2 of the Nursing Research: Generating and Assessing Evidence for Nursing Practice textbook provide the necessary information regarding EBP and how to find evidence. In Nursing Research: Generating and Assessing Evidence for Nursing Practice, the section “Resources for Evidence-Based Practice” in Chapter 2 will be very valuable. Chapter 5 provides strategies for locating and assessing credible information. The sooner you read these chapters with the project in mind, the easier it will be to complete the project.
