Identify a Problem, Develop a Question, and Choose a Nursing Theorist (Fall prevention in a clinical setting)

Purpose:

Nursing problems are often derived from an area of concern or gap in knowledge in clinical practice or theory. For completion of the clinical practicum experience, the student should address a problem or issue related to supporting health, providing care, or interacting with a variety of providers and/or patients. Observing nursing care within a clinical setting and researching current issues related to nursing and the health care profession from a peer-reviewed journal are methods of identifying problems through observation and inquiry.

Prepare a 2- to 3-page paper describing the following:

  • Identify an issue relevant to your clinical setting. (Frequent falls. 11 falls in the month of October

  • Describe the background and context of the issue.
  • Describe current evidence-based practice research surrounding the issue.
  • Identify stakeholders.
