Evidence Based Practice II: Designing an Evidenced Based Quality Improvement Project

The focus of this course is on translating research and other forms of evidence to improve practice processes and outcomes. Learners refine and extend the knowledge and competencies acquired in Evidence Based Practice I, and Improving Health Care Quality to develop a theory-guided, evidence-based practice innovation that will improve quality, safety, outcomes, cost and/or access to care, for a specific practice setting or population. The improvement/innovation developed in this course applies principles from improvement science to design, implement and analyze practice improvement outcomes and impact. The end product of this course serves as the theoretical framework and foundation for the DNP Scholarly Project.
