theory practice gap 1

Fundamentals of Nursing Models, Theories, and Practice discusses the theory-practice gap in detail in many chapters. As you’ve read throughout the course, there is ongoing discussion about the connection between theory and practice, and the application in day-to-day nursing activities. This assignment is designed to illustrate that although there may be a gap, other factors play an important role in decision-making and each aspect of theory, research, and practice experience are integral to well-rounded patient care.

Read: Fundamentals of Nursing Models, Theories, and Practice and review Figure 1.4 Correlation: education, science and practice. (Included as attachment)

Think of a scenario in which theory, research, and practice interact to create good patient outcomes.

  • Explain the relationship between the three and discuss the role each plays in quality patient care in the scenario.
  • Explain any gaps, such as a lack of research, no practice standard, or no useable theory.
  • Determine the best course of action for making decisions in the absence of one aspect.

  • Include documentation of the practice guideline or standard, and your corresponding research, evidence, or literature example.

    Cite your research and practice guidelines in-text and on the references page at the end of the template.
