IntroductionThe purpose of Module C-Part II is to allow students an opportunity to assess an existing hospital or clinical policy/protocol by using an existing nursing theory. This is a short one page written assignment that connects nursing theory with protocols/policies existing within facilities. Objectives1)Evaluate a patient-centered clinical protocol or policy using evidence-based practice and a nursing theory. Required ResourcesAmerican Psychological Association (APA). Publication manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). Washington, DC: American Psychological Association Masters, K. (2015). Nursing theories: A framework for professional practice (2nd ed.). Burlington, MA: Jones & Bartlett Learning. Module C Textbook and other Readings:Chapters based upon selected theorist/theory Hospital or other facility policy/protocol Additional literature, i.e. journal articles, etc. NOTE: IF you currently do not work in a health care facility, you can access generic hospital policies/protocols online. You may use one of these published policies/protocols for this assignment. You will need to cite it in your reference list. Learning ActivitiesoExamine a patient centered protocol/policy at the facility where you practice that incorporates evidence-based practice and possibly a theoretical framework (theory of nursing). If the patient-centered protocol/policy doesn’t formally mention/include a theoretical framework (nursing theory), then make recommendations for which theoretical framework (nursing theory) would be appropriate to guide the policy for nursing practice. Indicate why you believe that the theory you selected could improve the policy and why. Lastly, re-write the policy with theory included (highlight/bold this part) and cited with references.This is an assignment that totals three pages. Use the first page to copy (with citation and proper reference) the policy/protocol as noted in the facility. The second page are your thoughts and example of how to improve this policy/protocol based on incorporating theory into it. Highlight/bold font this part so it is clear. The third page is a reference list. NOTE: A policy/protocol generally outlines the care that will be provided to patients in a designated area of practice. Theories do not describe how a procedure is performed, but offer foundational knowledge to understand underlying dynamics occurring within patients and/or the setting.
The assignment requires you to select a disease process covered in class and write a 3-page paper using evidence-based practice guidelines. You are to choose
