Course Reflection solution
First, my master’s degree in nursing has enabled me to gain and demonstrate clinical leadership for delivering patient-care practices, including design, coordination, and evaluation of care for individuals and groups. Additionally, I have gained knowledge and skills helpful in identifying and collecting care outcomes, including mortality rate, safety, efficiency, timeliness of health care, etc.
Secondly, the course has enabled me to gain knowledge and skills for evaluating and improving patient outcomes. It entails synthesizing information, data, and other clinical evidence to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of care delivery. Also, I can apply the knowledge and skills learned from the course to anticipate and protect patients from risks.
Thirdly, I can use my knowledge and skills in technologies and information systems to care for and improve patients’ outcomes. It involves the application of technology advancement in healthcare settings to improve the quality of care and reduce human errors. Finally, I can deliver safe and competent care to my patients in various settings based on natural sciences and liberal arts.
Thoughts on evidenced-based practice
Evidence-based practice (EBP) is “the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the individual patient’s care. It means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research” (Canberra, 2022). EBP is beneficial because it focuses on providing the most effective care to improve patient outcomes. Patients expect to receive the best care based on available resources and evidence. Additionally, evidence-based practice promotes the attitude of inquiry essential in providing care. Why is this procedure and not the other one? Is there any evidence to guide what to do? (Canberra, 2022). Finally, EBP plays a significant part in ensuring resources are used wisely and providing evidence when making funding decisions in the healthcare system.
Ethics in research
Ethics considerations are a set of guidelines or principles in research practices. They work to protect the participants from exploitation, enhance the research’s validity, and preserve the study’s integrity (Bhandari, 2022). Additionally, it is ethical to get the institutional review board (IRB) approval before starting the research process. The responsibility of the IRB is to check where the research aims and if the research design is ethically acceptable.
The first ethical consideration is voluntary participation (Manti & Licari, 2022). This means research participants should be free to join or opt out at any study point. Also, there should be informed consent; study participants should be aware of the purpose, funding, risks, and benefits before they agree to join or decline the study.
Secondly, participants’ information and data should be private and kept confidential. The researcher may know the subject participant personally, but they should hide their information from unauthorized personnel. Personal identifiable information should not be collected. Furthermore, the research study should be beneficial; it should positively impact the lives of individuals and their well-being in general. Also, there should be justice during the entire research process, fairness in time, incentives, and resource allocation to all study participants (University of London, 2022).
Thirdly, the research should be free from potential harm (Barrow et al., 2022). Study subjects should be protected from social, physical, and psychological harm. All types of potential harm should be kept at absolute minimum. Finally, the investigators should ensure they do their original work free from plagiarism, observe the code of ethics throughout the research process and accurately present the results.
