Use of Resources to Promote Translation of Evidence into Practice

For this Discussion, you are asked to evaluate the use of a health information system and other resources in your practicum setting. What are the implications of resource use in terms of planning for and implementing your proposed evidence-based change?

To prepare:

  • Consider the benefits and limitations of the use of a      health information system within your practicum setting. What impact do      you think this might have for your proposed evidence-based change? Draw      upon at least one relevant example of a current or previous change      initiative at your setting as you assess this. (If your setting does not      have a health information system, you can still discuss the benefits and      limitations of not having a health information system as it relates to      this change.)
  • What other resources (e.g., financial, staffing,      materials) are important to consider as well? Why?
  • Be prepared to support your Discussion postings with      evidence from the literature and specific examples related to your      practicum setting.

By tomorrow Wednesday 4/3/19  2pm write a minimum of 550 words essay in APA format with at least 3 references (see list or required readings below). Include the level one headers as numbered below:
