You will explore Evidenced-based Practice (EBP) and quality projects/initiatives. A nurse leader’s role in these projects cannot be underestimated. It is important to understand the differences in research projects, quality improvement (QI) initiatives, and evidenced based practice (EBP) projects. This week students will explore and discuss those differences.
Upon successful completion of this module, you will be able to:
- Differentiate between evidenced-based practice and research.
- Differentiate between quality improvement projects and research.
- Explore how evidenced based practice, quality, and safety in health care are reflected in nursing theory, research, and science in meeting the mandate for quality and safety.
