1. Locate evidence of an evidence-based practice (EBP) change that has occurred on the unit where you are practicing. Talk with your preceptor, look for posters, flyers, or staff meeting minutes to see how the change has been implemented. If it is in process, discuss the process.

2. Identify the clinical question/issue that was utilized to begin the change process.

3. Identify the change process utilized to implement the EBP change and the members of the change team. What is the nurse’s role in the change process?

4. Using your text and at least one current peer-reviewed research article, compare the EBP on your unit to other similar EBP implementations found in the literature.

5. Explain the context of the change, how it was implemented, and the success of the change process on this unit.

6. Identify (after having talked with staff, charge nurse, unit manager, or preceptor) the challenges and opportunities the change process brought to the unit. How did the nurse leader help with the change process?

7. Use your research article and textbook to identify the change theory utilized and compare the unit implementation process to the process in your textbook.

8. Try to limit your submission to 500–750 words. Include an APA 7th reference list as an attachment.

Pressure ulcer treatment is one of many aspects of patient care in which nursing care interfaces directly with clinician-provided medical services. In my unit we have a lot of patients who have been there for over 10 days and turning patients who are bedridden for majority of their stay is crucial to prevent pressure ulcers. My preceptors informed that there 3 things she does when she first assesses her patient when they come to her first, she does a Comprehensive skin assessment, then a Standardized pressure ulcer risk assessment and lastly, she mentally prepares her Care planning and implementation to address areas of risk. In fact, Florence Nightingale in 1859 wrote, “If he has a bedsore, it’s generally not the fault of the disease, but of the nursing”.
