.

  • Practice      Problem (Completed in Week 1)=

In hospice, one of the goals is to have skilled nurse visits at least 3 days prior to death and at least 3-6 days prior to death. If we track ESAS it is supposed to help indicate who we can expect to pass away based on changes reported and then be able to increase nursing visits-however to be effective the data has to be accurate. Are we asking the patient or caregivers the 10 symptoms or just guessing based on our assessment

my wk one is totally different because I had to change topicsm so information will need to be added to this section.

Please include information from discussions and everything below. In the literature review, you don’t have to worry about the bottom 5 that are not relatated to the ESAS but my help and can use it.

I answered the questions above a little and will attach the graphs that should be included

  • State       the practice problem in measurable terms.
  • State       the data that suggests a practice problem exists
  • Include       a purpose statement.
  • Analysis      of the Existing Evidence (Completed in Week 2)
    • Summarize       the findings from the evidence analysis that support your practice       problem. Include minimum of at least 5 evidence-based practice sources       that support your practice problem. Identify research, clinical       guidelines, expert opinions, and other relevant information. You must       include two-three research studies in your analysis. Using your own words       synthesize the evidence that supports your identified practice problem.       There should be no quotes or personal opinions included in this section.
  • Quality      Improvement Process (Completed this Week) (Approximately 2-3      paragraphs)
    • Describe       the quality improvement process and the quality model that will be used       as a basis for the practice problem. This is not your entire quality       improvement plan, only a description of the quality improvement process       and the quality model you chose. You will develop your specific quality       improvement plan in week 4. Include a description of a quality       improvement tool(s) that you will use in your quality improvement plan.       See Spath, (2018) chapter 6 for examples.
