Examine a patient centered protocol/policy at the facility where you practice that incorporates evidence-based practice and possibly a theoretical framework (theory of nursing)
The purpose of Module C-Part II is to allow students an opportunity to assess an existing hospital or clinical policy/protocol by using an existing nursing theory. This short assignment is completed using the Module C Part II template with an emphasis of incorporating nursing theory into protocols/policies existing within facilities.
Evaluate a patient-centered clinical protocol or policy using evidence-based practice and a nursing theory.
Describe relevant theories that support inter-professional collaborative practice.
NOTE: IF you currently do not work in a health care facility, you can access generic hospital policies/protocols online. You may use one of these published policies/protocols for this assignment. You will need to cite it in your reference list.

Examine a patient centered protocol/policy at the facility where you practice that incorporates evidence-based practice and possibly a theoretical framework (theory of nursing). This is an assignment that is contained within a template format (see red template attachment above).
NOTE: A policy/protocol generally outlines the care that will be provided to patients in a designated area of practice. Theories do not describe how a procedure is performed, but offer foundational knowledge to understand underlying dynamics occurring within patients and/or the setting.
We strongly discourage students from using Nightingale as well as Henderson’s theories for this assignment. For this to be meaningful and useful in your clinical settings, we want you to use a contemporary nursing theory. Your textbook has many to choose from!
Questions for Consideration:
Answer these within the template in the designated columns of the assignment.

Please refer to class schedule for due date and time.
This is a template-based assignment. Use the first page for a title page, page 2 to copy (with citation and proper reference) the policy/protocol as noted in the facility. Page 3-5 is in template format for you to record your thoughts. Note the word minimums for each section above. This is a scholarly assignment that needs to demonstrate your understanding of how a nursing theory is implemented in the clinical setting via policies. The last page is a reference list.
A minimum of 3 scholarly/peer-reviewed references that include your textbook, the policy/procedure that you are using and the selected theorist. Theory websites are not considered scholarly.
