This is a formal 10-12-page paper on your EBP practice improvement project (This does not include the title page, abstract, and references). This assignment requires the use of evidence-based references. Preferable systematic reviews, clinical practice guidelines, and protocols, RTCs, and other higher levels of evidence.

Answer only the red part in 2-3 pages, use the references included


1. Write a 10-12 paper (excluding cover and reference page). Include the body of the paper with the following titled sections:

· Abstract

· Title (introduction) with purpose

· Background

· Methods

· Literature Review of the proposed change

· Discussion (what was learned)

· Proposed change implementation 

· Proposed methods to measure outcomes of the change

· Recommendations for Practice change.

· Conclusion and implications for nursing.

PICOT Question: In patients with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, what methods and outcome measures have been used in research studies to assess the effectiveness of music therapy interventions compared to other non-pharmacological interventions or no intervention, and what are the implications for integrating these findings into nursing practice?

Proposed change implementation

Include suggestions for improvement/change (Aim) to whatever it is you are researching. For example, If you are proposing policy changes to current urinalysis protocols, how will this policy impact the organization and stakeholders? Patient and/or population expected to benefit directly from improved flow or process. The risk of participation is the same as receiving usual care. If risk or burden is higher than with usual care, consider research & IRB.

Proposed methods to measure outcomes of the change

State what EBP model will you use to plan for your project. What plans do you have to measure key indicators, what about tools used to measure the outcomes, what is the validity or reliability if any. Measures may include knowledge, attitude, behavior/practices, and outcomes What about the sample? You may propose small but large enough samples to observe changes. What is the feasible for data collection, the minimal time needed, resources, costs? How will you conduct the data analysis? Who will be involved in the Organization?
