|DNA||NURSAN||3794||1.0||Evidence Based Nurse Anesthesia Practice|
This course builds on knowledge and skills acquired in NUR 2000 and NUR 2011. Translation of research evidence to nurse anesthesia clinical practice is a focus. Students will critique research papers, quality improvement projects and programmatic evaluations. Students will gain an understanding of how clinical practice guidelines (e.g., American Society of Anesthesia, American Heart Association, World Health Organization, and Centers for Disease Control) are developed, evaluated and disseminated. Differences between research projects, quality improvement projects and program evaluation projects will be explored. Students will gain an understanding of methods for integrating clinical practice guidelines into capstone projects.
