Paper details PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS AS BEST AS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!! Probe Questions for Milestone #1 1) Title/Work setting & Problem: What is the title of your project? What is the work setting? (no names please). How many beds, employees, rural or urban? What is the nursing problem you want to explore? Develop a problem statement. Start the sentence with: The problem is….. 2) Measurable AIM Statement: AIM Statement must include, what, where, and by how much. 3) Timeline and Budget: Build a specific timeline for your budget. What is going to happen on what date? The timeline must include dates of when you are going to do the steps of your project. The budget must include dollar amounts of what the PI process will cost to complete. This includes personnel, materials, and educational sessions if applicable. Every project will have a budget. 4) Analyze the Problem: Build a literature review chart that must contain five (5) peer-reviewed articles on your topic dated in the last five years. Peer-reviewed articles should be about research that covers your nursing problem. Blogs, editorials, and commentaries are not research articles. Do not use research articles written in a foreign country as they use a different method of research and the articles will not fit into the literature table that is provided for you. Use the literature review template in the content section and place this completed template on a slide in your presentation. 5) APA format: Follows all APA guidelines and includes an audio or narration for each slide. 1)Title page: Formatted in APA & Work setting (Do not use the name of facility) & Problem statement – Title page is complete. Work setting is descriptive with number of staff, beds, (hospital) or number of patients seen (clinic). Problem statement describes the topic, outlines all relevant variables, and provides justification for the choice of topic 2) Develop a measurable goal (AIM statement)- Goal contains the learner, quality, criteria, and conditions & measurable knowledge, skills or behaviors 3) Define the project timeline & Budget- Timeline & Budget is complete and well presented with events correctly sequenced 4) Analyze the problem- Evaluate the current literature to predict the common factors that contribute to the problem. Must use 5-peer-reviewed articles dated in the last five years. Place the articles in the literature table. 5) Articulation – The presentation is well organized, contains additional graphics, and demonstrates 95% compliance with APA format and grammar rules. Probe Questions for Milestone Two 1) Interventions: What are the top three interventions listed in the literature for your problem? Review your budget- do you have everything in the budget that you need? 2) Pick an intervention: What is the one (1) intervention you will use to solve your problem? Develop a flowchart to demonstrate the new process/intervention for your nursing problem. 3) Teaching; Describe how you plan to teach the staff your new intervention. Will you use a checklist, competency, educational session or all of these? Place a small portion of the checklist, test, or an outline of the educational session in your slides. 4) Measurement: What is the measurement tool that you are going to use to measure the effectiveness of your intervention? Is it a checklist, test or something else? Describe how you plan to measure the proposed data using charts and diagrams. If you have data from your facility, place the data in the tables. If you do not have data, place data in the chart and state that this is an example of how the data will look. A measurement tool must be used on your slides. You can show fake data if you need to. 5) APA format: Follows all APA guidelines and includes an audio or narration for each slide. 1) Interventions- Selected three evidence-based interventions that are proposed for implementation to address the problem stemming from the literature. Review and change any budgetary considerations that are needed to be based on the interventions. 2)Describe the actual improvement intervention you propose- All components of the criterion are addressed in a comprehensive and thorough manner with a flowchart of the proposed process 3)Describe how you will teach staff to assure a clear application of the interventions.- All the components educational sessions/process are addressed in a comprehensive and thorough manner 4)Provide a measurement tool to measure the interventions- Measurement tool (Excel or Word) must be specific to the problem and contain all of the elements required to collect the required data. Describe how to measure the proposed data to determine whether or not your proposed improvement will be effective using visual diagrams and charts. Proposed statistical testing to analyze the data 5) Articulation- The presentation is well organized, contains additional graphics, and demonstrates 95% compliance with APA format and grammar rules.
