Provide an overview of evidence-based practice and the steps involved. Explain the responsibilities of the baccalaureate-prepared nurse related to health care delivery. With a focus on the role of a BSN-prepared nurse during the pandemic and adapting to the changes in health care delivery Identify telehealth benefits, limitations, and barriers to its implementation and use. Describe ways that nurses can enhance the use of evidence-based practice in telehealth.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the use of telehealth has become an important means of facilitating health care delivery. Telehealth may be used for prevention and health promotion, acute illness, management of chronic conditions, or remote patient monitoring. Telehealth may include telepharmacy, teleradiology, telepsychiatry, teledermatology, and other services. Create a 15- to 18-slide presentation (excluding title slide and reference slide) with detailed speaker notes explaining the evidence surrounding telehealth. Do the following: Provide an overview of evidence-based practice and the steps involved. Explain the responsibilities of the baccalaureate-prepared nurse related to health care delivery. With a focus on the role of a BSN-prepared nurse during the pandemic and adapting to the changes in health care delivery Identify telehealth benefits, limitations, and barriers to its implementation and use. Describe ways that nurses can enhance the use of evidence-based practice in telehealth. Support your assertions with evidence to the research/literature Include a minimum of 3 scholarly sources from the University of Phoenix Library. Cite your sources according to APA guidelines.
Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a systematic approach to healthcare that is informed by the best available evidence. The steps involved in EBP include:
Identifying a clinical question or problem that needs to be addressed.
Conducting a comprehensive search for the best available evidence on the topic.
Appraising the quality of the evidence.
Integrating the best evidence with clinical expertise and patient values and preferences.
Evaluating the outcome of the intervention and making necessary changes to improve patient outcomes.
The responsibilities of a baccalaureate-prepared nurse (BSN) related to healthcare delivery include:
Providing high-quality patient care.
Implementing evidence-based practice.
Using critical thinking and problem-solving skills to make clinical decisions.
Collaborating with interdisciplinary teams to provide comprehensive care.
Advocating for patient rights and promoting patient safety.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the role of a BSN-prepared nurse has become even more important in adapting to changes in healthcare delivery, including the increased use of telehealth.
Telehealth has many benefits, including increased access to care for patients in remote or underserved areas, improved patient satisfaction and convenience, and reduced healthcare costs. However, there are also limitations and barriers to its implementation and use, including concerns about privacy and security, a lack of standardization and regulation, and a lack of technological infrastructure in some areas.
Nurses can enhance the use of evidence-based practice in telehealth by:
Providing patient education on the use of telehealth.
Ensuring that telehealth technology is used in a safe and effective manner.
Collaborating with other healthcare professionals to ensure that telehealth is integrated into patient care plans.
Staying current on the latest telehealth research and best practices.
Advocating for policies and funding that support the continued growth and development of telehealth.
