In this week’s Discussion, you shared your experiences with health  care practice problems as a consumer and/or as a practitioner. Now,  consider your current practice setting and think about something  specific and relevant to your practice setting that you would like to  see improved or changed. Interview a key leader in your practice setting  who can confirm that your practice problem is one that should be  addressed to enhance delivery or performance in the field. It is  important to remember from the beginning that your practice problem must  be measurable, and that you identify data that  suggests a problem exists, and although this comes up more specifically  in Week 2, it is important to consider this from the start.

Be  sure to support your practice problem with the literature that indicates  the relevance of this problem for nursing practice. Provide evidence  from your practice area and describe the data that is available.

You will not be collecting any data during the practice experience  project; you will use data already available to you in your workplace  or other practice setting. Think about the different kinds of data that  is shared with you in your work area. For example, data may include  patient satisfaction scores, medication error rates, fall, CLABSI or  CAUTI rates. Analyzing the data available to you is how you will  identify that a quality problem exists. Data identifies potential areas  for improvement, and monitors the effectiveness of any changes. It  is important to obtain baseline data before beginning a quality  improvement project and to analyze results during and at the end of a  projec
