Practice Problem Analysis

Practice Problem Analysis

The purpose of this assignment is to critically evaluate a practice problem. This assignment builds on the Week 4 assignment: Translation Science Project. Information used in the Week 4 assignment may be used as the basis for this assignment. The goal of the assignment is to develop a deeper understanding of the practice issue, using continuous quality improvement tools; specifically, a failure mode & effect analysis (FMEA) of the selected practice problem and an Ishikawa (fishbone) cause and effect diagram to analyze, improve, or mitigate related risks. This assignment will allow for the application of the DNP Essential IV sub-competencies through sequential development of workflow steps in relation to a practice problem and promotion of presentation skills. Assignment content supports the professional formation, communication, and dissemination skills relevant to the DNP practice scholar.

This assignment has four components:

·  first, identify a practice problem stated in PICOT format;

·  second, conduct a failure mode & effect analysis of the practice problem;

·  third, develop an Ishikawa (fishbone) cause and effect diagram to analyze, improve, or mitigate related risks

·  and fourth, create a professional power point presentation with speaker notes for each slide to disseminate this information.

Course Outcomes

This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

·  CO 4: Evaluate the types of healthcare information systems, knowledge-based systems, and patient care technology and the impact on patient safety, quality of care and outcomes measurement. (PO 7)

·  CO 5: Appraise consumer health information sources for accuracy, timeliness, and appropriateness. (PO7)

Total points possible: 250 

Preparing the Assignment

Follow these guidelines when completing each component of the assignment. Contact your course faculty if you have questions.

Consider using the same practice problem identified in Week 4: Translation Science Project, including the practice problem, PICOT construction, and background/significance of the problem. Be sure to incorporate faculty feedback from the Week 4 assignment to maximize performance.

2) Review the examples of the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) and Ishikawa (fishbone) Diagram in Week 4, Explore page 2, Evidence-Based Practice: Improving Outcomes.

Use the Week 6 Practice Problem Analysis PowerPoint Template to complete the PowerPoint Presentation. (Links to an external site.)

Use the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) (Links to an external site.) and Ishikawa (fishbone) Diagram template A (Word 2016 or higher) (Links to an external site.) or Ishikawa (fishbone) Diagram template B (Older version of Word) (Links to an external site.)or create your own fishbone diagram addressing the required five areas:  (a) people, (b) environment, (c) materials, (d) methods, and (e) equipment to complete these components of the assignment. If you need to update to the current version of Word, click here.

Please submit to the assignment link the completed Week 6 Practice Problem Analysis PowerPoint Presentation with speaker notes for each slide integrating failure mode & effect analysis and fishbone diagrams into the powerpoint answering associated questions.  Upload the finished powerpoint with speaker notes to assignment link.
