You are a new enrolled nurse working in a clinic located in a remote area. The clinic building is an older structure and lacks the use of clinical and client information, such as posters. It has been identified that many of the staff are efficient in their roles but have some out-of-date ideas in their nursing practice. The clinic manager has asked you to research the most current information about a specific topic, such as: Infection control Plan the research activity 1. In order to complete this assessment, you need to identify TWO (2) areas related to the topic, where research can help support and improve your own practice as an EN. E.g topic: Infection control and prevention (or as agreed with your educator) 2. Identify the reason(s) for undertaking your research from the list below. • You may select several reasons. • Provide a brief rationale for each. E.g reasons: Comparison / hypothesis testing / trend identification / own knowledge extension / strengthen quality of own practice. 3. Write a clear statement highlighting your research question or hypothesis, e.g. “Is there a difference between hand washing protocols and actual practice”. It may include: • Nursing interventions applicable to the topic • Client perceptions of the provision of this topic • Models of nursing care that utilise the topic • Political issues confronting nursing practice and health care provision in relation to the topic An example of a question (the student can NOT use this example), would be: Does hand washing among healthcare workers reduce hospital acquired infections? An example of a hypothesis (the student can NOT use this example), would be: Hospital acquired infections are more likely to be passed on by hand washing with water than when hands are washed with soap.
