Benchmark – Evidence-Based Practice PLEASE READ ALL DIRECTIVES Benchmark – Evidence-Based Practice Proposal
Throughout this course, you have been developing a formal, evidence-based practice proposal.
The proposal is the plan for an evidence-based practice project designed to address a problem, issue, or concern with Care Management. Although several types of evidence can be used to support a proposed solution, a sufficient and compelling base of support from valid research studies is required as the major component of that evidence. Proposals are submitted in a format suitable for obtaining formal approval in the work setting. Proposals will vary in length depending upon the problem or issue addressed, but they should be at least 3,500 words. The cover sheet, abstract, References page, and appendices are not included in the word count.
Section headings and letters for each section component are required. Responses are addressed in narrative form in relation to that number. Evaluation of the proposal in all sections is based upon the extent to which the depth of content reflects graduate-level critical thinking skills.
This project contains six formal sections: Please use the attached sections A-F which has already been written and include it in the final paper
1. Section A: Problem Description
2. Section B: Research Support
3. Section C: Proposed Solution
4. Section D: Change Model
5. Section E: Implementation Plan
6. Section F: Evaluation of Process
The final paper will consist of the completed project, title page, abstract, References list, and appendices. Appendices will include a conceptual model for the project, handouts, data and evaluation collection tools, a budget, a timeline, resource lists, and approval forms.
An abstract is required for the final paper.
Refer to the “EBP Implementation Plan Guide” and the “Evidence-Based Practice Project Proposal Format” as tools for developing your proposal.
