Part I:  Introduction to EBP: Basic Concepts

Please read the attached article (Sacred Cow Gone to Pasture: A Systematic Review of EBP) and answer both questions:

  1.  
  2. Identify a sacred cow that you use in your practice.  Now try to track back to identify its source.  Was it tradition (“This is the way it’s always been done”)? Authority (“Dr. So-and-so said so”)? Or systematic research (“An empirical study discovered this to be the case”)?
  3.  
  4. Can you identify a sacred cow in your own practice?  How do you think you might go about changing it?

 

Part II: Ethics

 

  1. If you knew a patient was being coerced into a study what would you do?
  2.  
  3. Researchers are offering $1000 to be in a drug trial study.  Do you think this is ethical?  Why or Why not?
  4.  
  5. You have been asked to participate in a study where group interviews will be conducted and confidential information is shared.  Do you participate?  Why or why not?

The focus of this assignment is to kick-start your thinking related to theory and the role theory plays in professional nursing practice.  Please post a response specific to each of these items A, B, and C.  

A.   “Nursing theory development is an essential component of nursing scholarship. Nursing science growth flows from nursing scholarship nurturing the interrelationship between practice and theory.” Please identify two specific examples of this in your professional life, give me the daily workaday nurses’ need of this and what is your understanding of this.

B. Why do you, as a nursing theory novice, need to study concepts of professional nursing in this BSN program? 

C. General systems theory will be cited by several nurse theorists as being influential to their theory development.  In your understanding of our readings, why do you think, in the time of ‘growing nursing theory,’ this theory from non-nursing disciplines “spoke” to our nursing theorist foremothers as being a part of nursing knowledge foundation?

 

please feel free to message me with any questions that you may have. Thanks!
