Initial Post
This week you will determine your project approach and identify a practice Model best suited to guide your project. Moran et al. (2020) indicate that a “DNP projects use a variety of approaches including quality improvements, program and policy evaluation, evidence-based practice initiatives and components of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies to evaluate, innovate or improve practice.” Methods such as PDSA; Six Sigma; or RCA in a QI project or the IOWA; the Rosswurm and Larrabee or Stelter models on an EPB project need “congruence between the project aim(s) and the study design, and the data collection and the analysis plan” (Moran et al., 2020, p. 156).

In Moran et al. (2020, p. 157), review Table 7-1 for the various approaches to the DNP project that include research /practice-based inquiry, quality improvement, evidence-based practice, or program evaluation. As you begin to consider your project design,

1. Review and select the DNP approach consistent with your population, intervention, and outcome measurement for your study and provide a rationale for your selection.
2. Describe the EBP model that will guide your project and the rationale for choosing this EBP model. You may refer to Table 7-1: DNP Project Approaches (Moran et al. 2021 p. 157) in your text for guidance.
3. Define practice inquiry as it relates to the development of your scholarship practice project outlined in Holly (2019, p. 47) and the importance of practice inquiry as you develop your SPP proposal. NU-740: Week 8 Discussion: SPP Evidence-Based Practice Model
Your DNP project can take many forms. In Figure 5-2, Moran et al. (2020, p. 141), give some examples for review
Quality Improvement Projects (a focus on analyzing elements of specific areas of performance to gain some measure of improvement). Quality Improvement Projects might use Plan-Do-Study-Act, Six Sigma, Lean Methodology, Failure Mode Effect Analysis, Root Cause Analysis, or Structure Process Outcome to name a few frameworks.
• Deploying a Geriatric Nurse Practitioner in an Emergency Department to Improve Outcomes for Geriatric Patients
• Fall Prevention in the Medical-Surgical Setting
• Optimizing Inpatient Heart Failure Education to Support Self-Care After Discharge
Translating Evidence into Practice Projects (incorporate evidence into practice; translate practice guidelines; develop, implement, and/or evaluate practice initiatives). Evidence-based Practice Projects might use the IOWA Model, the Advancing Research & Clinical Practice through Close Collaboration, the Academic Center for Evidence-Based Practice, the Promoting Action on Research Implementation, the Stetler Model, the John Hopkins Hospital Nursing Evidence-based Practice Model, the JBI Model of Evidence-based Healthcare, or the Rosswurm and Larrabee Model, to name a few. Regis College oftentimes uses the Rosswurm and Larrabee Model as an exemplar for evidence-based practice
