As a busy AGACNP, finding sufficient time to stay current with and apply best practices can be a challenge. Share your methodology for personal evaluation. Including the positives and negatives of the approach you are currently taking. Propose ways in which you could enhance your current efforts incorporating evidence-based inquiry. And evaluation without adversely affecting a healthy work-life balance. What are the benefits of using current research or experiential learning to improve your practice? Support your answer with two or three peer-reviewed resources.
Describe a clinical situation in which you have directly applied evidence-based data to produce a successful patient outcome. If you have not yet done so in practice, describe a clinical situation in which you envision this as a possibility. Explain your process. What steps in the process would you either add or eliminate if you were to encounter this particular set of circumstances again? How could your actions lead to better patient advocacy or a community action? Support your answer with two or three peer-reviewed resources.
medical surgical unit supervisor
As the most senior staffer and only AGACNP on your team, you are tasked by a medical surgical unit supervisor with developing a 1-hour teaching module based on a disease process from one of the following: Neurology, Cardiovascular, Pulmonary, Gastroenterology, Urology, Endocrinology, Orthopedics, Dermatology, Renal, Hematology. This is intended for a small group of new-hire, newly licensed RNs on your medical surgical unit.
You have been asked to introduce them to the key principles of noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring and other concepts they will need to firmly understand to perform their jobs. In the lesson, be sure to analyze theories regarding implementation of change in clinical practice. Also include the importance of implementing the best standard of care in the acute care setting. Using the course text and a minimum of three evidence-based, peer-reviewed resources, create and post an outline with a brief rationale of the proposed educational lesson you will deliver.
You may not repeat a disease process that one of your colleagues has already completed. In your forum responses to your colleagues, select one area of focus of their proposed lesson plans and offer additional suggestions to improve or expand that area to provide a richer, more in-depth learning experience for the learners. Support your answer with two or three peer-reviewed resources. Cite your lesson and feedback sources in APA format.
Discuss the role of an AGACP as an educational change agent in health care. Then select one colleague’s proposed educational lesson from the first DQ in this topic. Do not select a lesson for which you have provided feedback. Analyze their method on disseminating evidence to other health care professionals. Provide constructive feedback to your colleague regarding the following.
1. Additional information that should be included in the lesson plan.
2. Structure and flow of the lesson.
3. Other supportive ideas to assist your colleague in developing a comprehensive, effective, and relevant lesson on the chosen educational topic.
Use the course text and a minimum of three evidence-based, peer reviewed resources in your response.
