Tying it All Together
Once a nursing researcher or nursing
professional has conducted analyses on their collected data, what can
they conclude about their research and research question?
and final phase of the research process involves drawing conclusions
about research findings as well as tying them into meaningful solutions
for clinical nursing practice. How might a nursing researcher or nursing
professional relate their research findings to solutions for improved
quality of care and patient safety? How might drawing certain
conclusions from research findings impact your health care setting?
This week, you will examine two content areas.
PART I: Drawing Conclusions About Research Findings and Their Implications for Clinical Practice
I focuses on the last phase of the research process, namely drawing
conclusions about the findings and discussing their implications for
clinical practice. You will examine how the findings contribute to
clinical practice and how the findings might add to new knowledge and
the existing literature on a topic. You will consider how the
characteristics of well-written conclusions and implications, including
consideration of the study’s limitations, recommendations for future
research, and variation in the quality of presenting these areas in
published research may impact nursing practice.
PART II: The Value of Research in Evidence-Based Practice and Translational Science
II focuses on what has been explored about the value of quantitative
and qualitative research in evidence-based practice and translational
science in nursing.
Evaluate how evidence-based practice will improve patient quality and safety
the importance of the interpretation, conclusion, and clinical
implications of clinical research articles in evidence-based practice
Evaluate effectiveness of interventions on decreasing medication errors in health care settings

ASSIGNMENT 1: Use of Research in Clinical Practice
this course, you have examined and considered how the research process
contributes to the field of clinical nursing practice. More than just an
exercise in developing a research question, searching the literature to
guide future research, and performing actual data collection/data
analysis, the conclusions you draw from your research findings are
useful in helping to develop and enact effective clinical practice. In
essence, the process of conducting research contributes to positive
social change in that the solutions that you might propose as a nurse
researcher and professional will likely impact quality of care and
For this ASSIGNMENT, read the book chapter by
Titler (2008) presented in this week’s resources that describes
evidence-based practice and translational science, as well as the kind
of research needed for both. Then, reflect on how the knowledge you
gained about research will support your effort as a nursing professional
to improve patient quality and safety.
Describe how you will use
evidence-based practice to improve patient quality and safety in your
health care setting. Be specific and provide examples. Then, explain how
the knowledge gained about research in this course will support your
role in practice as a nursing professional. Then, describe how you will
use evidence-based practice to improve patient quality and safety. Be
sure to include in your Discussion any unanswered questions that need to
be considered by your classmates and/or Instructor.
Note: WRITE a three paragraph (at least 350 words) response. Be sure to use evidence from the readings and include in-text citations. Utilize essay-level writing practice and skills, including the use of transitional material and organizational frames. Use the writing resources to develop your post.
Assignment 2: APPLICATION:
Drawing Conclusions About Research Findings and Their Implications for Clinical Practice
a current or future nursing researcher and professional, your ability
to draw reasonable conclusions from research findings will determine the
effectiveness of proposed solutions for clinical nursing practice. As
you continue to develop your skill set to become a nursing leader, your
exposure to a multitude of research designs, research findings, and
evidence-based practice will likely inform how you will absorb this
knowledge into meaningful clinical practice. Throughout this course and
program, your exposure to different research questions, research study
designs, and approaches to addressing serious issues in both nursing and
health care confirms the ever-changing landscape in which you have
elected to practice. While this is in its own right challenging, it also
offers several opportunities to create new knowledge, improve upon
current nursing practice, and exercise research skills
for positive patient outcomes.
For this Assignment, review the Research Methods and Findings of the Verweij study conducted in 2014 in this week’s resources.
The primary purpose of this quantitative research study was to
investigate the effectiveness of an intervention to decrease medication
errors in a hospital. The citation and discussion/conclusion information
is intentionally deleted so you can draw your own conclusions.
a 2- to 3-page, double-spaced paper, describe three conclusions you
have drawn from the findings in this study, taking into consideration
the limitations of the study. Next describe three implications for
clinical practice. Once you have submitted the assignment, you will be
given the full article for review.
