Introduction To Evidence-Based Practice Week 8
This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcomes (COs).
CO 3: Identify ethical issues common to research involving human subjects. (PO 6)
CO 5: Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice. (PO 7 & 8)
We begin our journey into discovering the new world of research and evidence-based practice (EBP) by exploring our past. After completing the required readings and lesson, answer the following:
Explain how research has evolved since the Florence Nightingale era.
Discuss how research and EBP are different; include how you believe research supports EBP for nursing.
Describe one past/historical unethical breach of research conduct; then, share how you would ensure care of a study participant using one ethical or legal research consideration (guideline/principle)
Why should nurses incorporate research? How could it (or does it?) impact your nursing practice? Think about these questions as you complete the assigned readings this week. Our profession was founded by Florence Nightingale, who was not just our nursing pioneer, but a researcher, too. In the last few years, we have seen many trends pushing nurses to have a professional practice based on evidence. With that as our beginning, consider our week’s discussion:
1. How has research evolved since Florence Nightingale?
2. How are research and EBP different and how does research support EBP?
3. Unfortunately, despite the positive impact research and EBP has, there have been major cases of research misconduct. Please choose one historical case and how you would engage in ethical treatment of a research participant.
Professor’s comment: This week, we will meet the following course outcomes:
Identify ethical issues common to research involving human subjects.
Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
