Science : quality indicators in nursing

Welcome to Part 1 of this assignment!

qualityNurses use Quality Indicators (QIs) for several purposes. QIs highlight potential quality concerns, identify areas that need further study and investigation, and track changes over time. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) QIs include Prevention Quality Indicators, Inpatient Quality Indicators, Patient Safety Indicators, and Pediatric Quality Indicators(Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, n.d.). You will use these quality indicators within your Assignment.

This Assignment also takes you back to the Walden Library. The Library is an invaluable resource for discovering nursing and health care–related databases and professional articles. Continue to practice and refine your writing skills. Learn how to use APA in-text citations and references. Use the Grammarly program—it is an invaluable writing tool to enhance your work.

In subsequent weeks, you will continue working in this substantive area.

To prepare

  • Choose a QI related to a nursing topic of interest to you. Think about the ways in which following and measuring this crucial health data improve effectiveness and efficiency in your nursing practice. Consider any points that relate your selected topic to the journey ahead in your nursing career.

Assignment

Use the Walden Writing Center guidelines titled “Writing a Paper”and “Scholarly Writing: Overview”to do the following:

  • Draft a 2- to 3-page paper describing your selected QI in general, and then describe how this QI has the potential to improve the quality, safety, and outcomes of your patients and their families.
  • Describe the current data available and leadership’s goal for improvement.
  • Draft a solution using 2 sourcesfrom professional and scholarly literature to support your proposal.
  • Use the 2000/3000 AWE Level Assignment Template in the resources for this week to complete your Assignment.
  • Use in-text citationsto support your paper. Use essay-level writing skills, including the use of transitional materialand organizational frames.

Before you submit your final paper for grading, submit it to a Safe Assign Draft in Academic Integrity.
