Write a paper of 500‐750 words (not including the title page and reference page) paper for your proposed evidence‐based practice project solution. Address the following criteria:
(a) Describe the proposed solution (or intervention) for the problem and the way(s) in which it is consistent with current evidence. Heavily reference and provide substantial evidence for your solution or intervention.
This proposed evidence focuses on the use of opioids to treat persistent pain in geriatric patients through scheduled analgesic. However, the proposed EBP contends that it is easier for the physician to use the medication once he/she has understood the type of pain, the doses required and hence effective scheduling . Understanding the use of opioids requires the physician to know how to manage and prevent the side effects of the medication. Geriatric patients are likely to develop various psychological and developmental symptoms including, weight…
(b) Consider if the intervention may be unrealistic in your setting, too costly, or there is a lack of appropriate training available to deliver the intervention. If the intervention is unrealistic, you may need to go back and make changes to your PICOT before continuing.
Proper monitoring and scheduling will contribute to the realization of the benefits of opioid therapy. The research conducted has shown that these drugs are an essential and safer alternative for managing persistent pain in adults. However, these benefits will be achieved with effective training of the healthcare personnel to ensure that only cases that merit its use are prescribed…
Organization Culture: Explain the way(s) in which the proposed solution is consistent with the organization or community culture and resources.
Misuse of opioids can lead to death. Presence of illicit opioids has contributed to outbreaks of diseases which are mainly associated with intravenous use of the drug and also increased healthcare spending. The health care sector should work more on creating awareness against the misuse if opioids….
Expected Outcomes: Explain the expected outcomes of the project. The outcomes should flow from the PICOT.
Method to Achieve Outcomes: Develop an outline of how the outcomes will be achieved. List any specific barriers that will need to be assessed and eliminated. Make sure to mention any assumptions or limitations which may need to be addressed.
Outcome Impact: Describe the impact the outcomes will have on one or all of the following indicators: quality care improvement, patient‐centered quality care, efficiency of processes, environmental changes, and/or professional expertise.
