Topic 1: Collaboration for Research and Evidence-based Practice

Consider the role of the nurse as an interdisciplinary team member in completing research and using research findings to inform health care practices.

Review the following:

  • Women’s Health Initiative retrieved from http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/whi
  • Collaborative strategies to enhance research and evidence-based practice. (see Journal in Reading)

Answer the following questions:

  • Discuss the role of the advanced practice nurse as an interdisciplinary research collaborator and member of the interdisciplinary team obligated to co-participate in the implementation and use of evidence-based practice.
  • End your discussion by providing an example of an evidence-based change that would require the collaborative efforts of nursing and at least two other healthcare disciplines and that would lead to quality improvement in healthcare.
