Evidenced Based Practice (EBP) is essential to enable all nurses to provide the most current up to date practises for their patients. This process involves research, systematic review of current practises, critical thinking skills, evaluation and application to the clinical setting. In addition to this, the nurse must take into account the patients’ preferences. For nurses to have professional autonomy they must be able to justify their actions and demonstrate an understanding of why they perform the tasks they do. This defines them as unique professionals judged by their knowledge and not simply by their hands on skills.
The following ssion of this assignment attempts to critically appraise the venUS III randomised control trial (RTC) published in the British Medical Journal.
Within this essay Evidence based Practice will be identified and the significant effect it has on the nursing profession, barriers will also be explored in the implementation of Evidence Based Practice.

The proposed research is based on a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods. Qualitative research involves iterative, logical and exploratory process that gathers the views of participants with the objective of analysing the facts that relate to the study. On the other hand quantitative methods comprise of deductive ways of studying the data collected (Bryman, 2004 cited in Heath and Tyna, 2010; pg 10).
Evidence based practice and applied nursing research encompasses selecting a perioperative procedure such as routine shaving of a surgical site which is something you would commonly find on a surgical floor.
Indeed, "new and validated knowledge that forms the basis j Y for evidence-based practice (EBP) most commonly is discovered in academic settings. But findings need to be translated into a protocol or guideline that can be used to guide practice," according to Conner, (2014, p.40). Evidence-based projects have lead to many improved clinical practice changes at the bedside and healthcare in general; and they are highly promoted and supported by different healthcare organizations.

If you are working in a treatment program within an agency tailored toward transitional housing and you notice that your clients are dual diagnosed a question could be “what is the best intervention for a veteran who suffers from both substance abuse and PTSD?
EBIs to reduce disruptive behavior and increase academic achievement can include trainings and implementation support at the school, class-wide, and individual student-level, and are often either academic or behavioral in nature. Overall, implementation of both universal (i.e. class-wide) and targeted (i.e. student-level) interventions have demonstrated positive impacts on decreasing disruptive behaviors and increasing student academic achievement (Flower, McKenna, Bunuan, Muething, & Vega, 2014; Vannest, Davis, Davis, Mason, & Burke, 2010).Ross, Romer, and Horner (2012) also found that teachers in schools implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports with high fidelity
Emergency department (ED) over-crowding is an ever growing issue. Although the reasons for ED overcrowding are complex and caused by many different types of issues, a potential solution can be the application of the nursing theory, Health Promotion, for parents and caregivers of children with acute gastroenteritis (AGE). The purpose of this paper is to apply the Health Promotion Model (HPM), by Nola Pender, to assist nurses to understand the major determinants of health behaviors to promote healthy lifestyles. Therefore providing education and health promotion strategies to parents and caregivers about AGE. Using properties of the assumptions and assertions of the HPM, can assist to educate parents and caregivers and in turn lighten the over-crowding issues emergency departments face today (Sakraida, 2014).
Computer-Assisted Interventions (CAIs) are utilized across schools nationwide for Tier 2 reading support. However, CAIs purchased by schools are often not supported by independent research. Learn about effective reading CAI programs for elementary school children and how to help busy teachers implement evidence-based CAIs.
