Discussion: Understand healthcare at the local level.

When planning an EBP implementation that involves the community, it is important to understand healthcare at the local level. The EBP implementation concerns a specific population so it’s important to understand what is allowed and not allowed in a culture, and what these individuals value. Evidence based research are based on focus group findings and are not always easily transferable to other populations or situations with unique cultural settings (Tacia et al, 2015). It’s also important to consider the health care system where one wants the change to be implemented. For example, what kind of resources will be available and is the health care system ready to implement a new EBP project. Looking within the local level helps to identify needs that will benefit the patients the healthcare system supports. EBP can address problems identified to the local health care system and will use current clinician’s expertise and will take into account patients values and preferences (Bardsley et al, 2016).

It is important to understand the health care system at the local level when planning EBP implementation for a few reasons. By understanding the presence of available personnel available to implement the process. It is also important to understand the local level because it promotes critical resources such as funding, training and opportunities (Bonham, Sommerfeld, Willging, Aarons, 2014). Understanding the health care system at the local level also evaluates the willingness of the health care system to implement EBP changes.
When conducting my practice change I will evaluate the health care system at the local level and involve the community and local agency. Involving the agencies and community allows for collaboration with the health care system and the community. Understanding the health care system at the local level also provides needed information about what health care needs are lacking in the community.

Several factors go into planning an evidence-based practice (EBP) implementation, and the understanding of the health care system at the local level is one of the important factors to consider. Looking at the local level can help ask and answer questions such as what can this demographic benefit from? what needs can this implementation meet? And what resources are available to help undertake implementation? During the creation of the EBP change, patient population and demographic is already a considered factor, however, the means to successfully begin the implementation takes place at the local level. “It was clear that time poses a major barrier to nurses accessing and implementing EBP. Therefore, it is important that efforts are made to develop strategies that bring evidence into everyday practice and to the bedside of patients” (Grothier, 2018). In speaking with my preceptor and when considering my change project, timing is something to take into consideration. No better time as now with a pandemic that has already shifted the way we practice daily, to implement change, as staff throughout is receptive to new ways of performing patient care tasks. The facility we will be presenting the change project to is a teaching facility, and resources to help conduct research are readily available. Discussion: Understand healthcare at the local level.

Nursing theories are a set of concepts that give a view of an observable fact or event that can be both explained and predicted.
The Roper-Logan-Tierney Model of Nursing is the model most used in the United Kingdom. It is based on the patient’s activities of daily living and meant to promote maximum independence through complete assessment upon admission and continued evaluation throughout the hospital stay. If deficits are identified, interventions in those areas are given to further support independence. This theory works well with my change project because the heart failure (HF) patient is assessed on admission, provided education and interventions during admission if necessary, and discharged to home with the goal of managing their HF at home without being readmitted to the hospital within 30 days.
The Orem Model of Nursing is considered a “grand nursing theory” with concepts that can be applied to all aspects of nursing. This theory promotes self-care as much as able believing that patients will recover more quickly and holistically if able to care for themselves making transition from hospital to home much smoother. This model can be used with my change project because the goal of the project is to educate and promote self-care during admission so patient will be able to manage their HF once discharged without being readmitted to the hospital within 30 days.
Both of these theories are currently being used by my preceptor at this facility.Discussion: Understand healthcare at the local level.
