Simulated DNP Evidence-based Project and Professional Leadership Capacity – Part 1

Assignment
Purpose
NOTE: This assignment must use the provided Paper Template, which is found in this link: Assignment Paper Template Links to an external site.

The purpose of this two-part paper is to develop a hypothetical or simulated DNP practicum project and explain how you will lead it.

For the assignments, students must simulate from experience a realistic clinical problem in a hypothetical practicum project clinical site, invent the probable gap in practice that would cause the problem, and conduct a simulated practice gap assessment in the imaginary clinical practicum project site. It may be possible to use evidence that you have already collected in the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool created in NR-716. (NOTE: Use the table provided in this template or include the completed Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool with this assignment.)

The purpose of Part 1 of this two-part assignment is to:

identify a hypothetical practice problem based on a simulated organizational needs assessment,
identify the causative gap in practice,
formulate a practice question to guide a quality improvement project
determine a leadership approach to address interprofessional collaboration
This assignment will allow for the assimilation of professional leadership competencies in project management as a DNP-prepared nurse. Assignment content supports professional formation, communication, and dissemination skills relevant to the DNP-prepared nurse.

This is the first part of a 2-part assignment submitted in Weeks 3 and 7 on the same template. You will receive corrective feedback from your course faculty on the Week 3 assignment that you will correct on the template to complete the Week 7 assignment.

NOTE: Both Week 3 and Week 7 assignments should be discussed in relation to a hypothetical or simulated DNP practicum project. **

**No actual DNP practicum project will be approved for implementation until the second practicum course, NR-705 Project & Practicum II

Instructions
For the Week 3 and Week 7 assignments in NR-703, students must fabricate from experience a realistic clinical problem in a hypothetical practicum project clinical site, invent the probable gap in practice that would cause the problem, and conduct a simulated practice gap assessment in the imaginary clinical practicum project site. It may be possible to use evidence that you have already collected in the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool created in NR-716. Use the table provided in this template or include the completed Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool with this assignment.

Complete the simulated Table 1: Organizational Needs Assessment: Practice Gap Identification on a simulated healthcare organization of your choice. The table is already attached as Table 1 in the assignment templateLinks to an external site.:
NOTE: Both the Week 3 and the Week 7 assignment papers in NR-703 will be completed using this required template.
Complete the following sections of the template as directed in APA format:
Introduction (1st paragraph of the template): Skip this section of the template. The introduction will be completed in Week 7.
Problem
Using the information that you gathered on the Organizational Needs Assessment: Practice Gap Identification (Table 1), describe the practice problem by explaining these elements:
Describe a specific location (hospital unit, community health clinic, surgical suite, primary care practice).
Identify the location (unit, clinic, etc.) and its key stakeholders (decision makers).
Explain the practice problem as would be identified by the stakeholders and ensure that it is realistic, practical, small in scope, and can be managed by you as if it were an actual 8-week project.
Practice Gap
Ensure a thoroughly completed Organizational Needs Assessment: Practice Gap Identification Table is completed in the template.
In 1-2 organized paragraphs, summarize your findings in Table 1, the Organizational Needs Assessment: Practice Gap Identification. Ensure the table remains after the reference list in the template, starting on its own page with the heading Table 1.
Practice Question
Define and briefly explain the project’s intended population, evidence-based intervention, and measurable outcomes (PICOT). Use the bulleted list in the template to provide your descriiptions:
Population
Describe the specific characteristics of the population that is the focus of the intervention, including the simulated unit, clinic, or healthcare location you have chosen.
Intervention
Citing evidence listed in the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool (Table 2), provide 1-2 sentences explaining what the intervention or intervention bundle should be from the evidence in Table 2; cite “see Table 2” in this section to refer the reader to the evidence. There should be at least three (3) references listed in Table 2 for this assignment that explicitly support the intervention and/or the outcome (and its measurements).
Comparison
State “compared to current practice” for this assignment. You should briefly state the current practice here but not in the PICOT practice question itself.
Outcome
Create and explain specific outcome measurements based on the current evidence you have collected in the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool (attached as Table 2). The source can be the same one used to support the intervention as long as it speaks to measurable outcomes. There should be at least three (3) references listed in Table 2 for this assignment. (NOTE: Use the table provided in this template or include the completed Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool with this assignment.)
Time
Time frame for the project implementation (Practicum projects are typically eight weeks long).
State the Practice Question
Example: (P) For the critical care team in X hospital’s ICU, (I) does the implementation of the medical sepsis protocol (C) compared to the current practice (O) reduce the incidence of medical sepsis diagnoses in ICU patients as measured before and after the intervention (T) over eight weeks?
Under the template’s level 1 heading, “Leading the Practice-Change Project,”
Complete the first section only, Interprofessional Collaboration in Leading Project Teams. Create your approach to implementing your hypothetical practice change project with an interprofessional team, including how you will create a project environment of mutual respect and shared values and facilitate team roles and flexibility to perform effectively in the project.
The remaining sub-sections in “Leading the Practice-Change Project” will be completed in Week 7.
Conclusion
Skip this section of the template. The conclusion will be completed in Week 7.
References
Complete the reference page on the Assignment Paper TemplateLinks to an external site.
Ensure each reference has a matching citation and is formatted as required by the APA manual/Chamberlain Guidelines for Writing Professional Papers
Include at least three (3) scholarly references at a minimum (those listed in the Johns Hopkins Table). Other references should be added to the reference list to support your assertions. (NOTE: Use the table provided in this template or include the completed Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool with this assignment.)
Tables
Complete Tables 1 & 2 in the Assignment Paper Template after the reference list.
Table 1, the Organizational Needs Assessment: Practice Gap Identification is in the template in its proper position
Table 2, the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool, should include a minimum of three [3] project sources that are research or systematic review references.
Tables 1 and 2 are referred to in your paper, and Table 1 is cited before Table 2 so that they are mentioned in the correct order.
NOTE: Use Table 2 provided in this template or include the completed Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool with this assignment.
