Topic 6 DQ 1
After consulting with my mentor regarding the implementation of the evidence-based practice solution, we agreed that critical aspects to be considered includes financial, clinical, and quality. The evidence-based practice solution to the problem of post-partum depression, PPD includes (1) Identification of mothers at risk. (2) Early detection and screening. (3) Prevention. (2) Treatment intervention.
An important financial aspect that needs consideration in developing evidence-based practice solution is to find out if the evidence-based solution proposed would help in reducing the cost of healthcare services for the targeted population. The delivery of high-quality healthcare services at low cost is one of the core objectives of nursing practice in the 21st century (Houser & Oman, 2012). The evidence-based practice solution is expected to reduce the cost of healthcare by minimizing the rates of admission for patients with post-partum depression, and thereby reducing medical costs associated with increased admission.
When it come to quality consideration, it is important that identification mothers at risk, prevention of PPD, early detection of PDD, and treatment interventions helps in promoting the anticipated good patients’ health outcomes such as risk minimization, management of PPD, depression free, and minimization of hospital admission etc. The evidence-based practice intervention would promote the quality of care delivered by reducing the adverse health outcomes associated with post-partum depression, and it would enhance patients’ satisfaction.
The availability of health care staff is the clinical aspect to be considered. Healthcare staff with relevant expertise and knowledge to facilitate the implementation of the evidence-based practice solution in both impatient and outpatient setting is very important in this present health care professional’s shortage. It is important to consider the skill mix required for the successful implementation of the evidence-based practice solution.
After discussion with your preceptor, name one financial aspect, one quality aspect, and one clinical aspect that need to be taken into account for developing the evidence-based change proposal. Explain how your proposal will directly and indirectly impact each of the aspects.
