Evidence Based Practice
On the previous assignment; part one of the course project, different research questions were formulated that would be of enormous help to the researcher when he/she is analyzing the research for literature review (Formulating a researchable question, 2013). A good research must have a well-defined literature review that examines the study aspects such as the design of the study, theoretical framework, and methods of data sampling. The main aim of formulating the questions was to help the state in understanding the problems affecting nursing career and the general population. When carrying out literature review of the query formulated, different data collection methods on the other hand, have been used for the analysis of data. Data collection was significant when carrying out the research study, however; inaccurate data collection sometimes tends to impact the results of the study design. All the problems to the questions were thoroughly researched for efficient nursing purposes not only to some specific individual, but also to the whole society. This paper will therefore analyze both the summary as well as the explanation of the complete and current state of knowledge on questions formulated found in different journal articles.
A synthesis of what the studies reveal about the current state of knowledge
The research was carried through data sampling method using the formulated questions which helped in revealing what is taking place at the current state of knowledge. Data sampling method was efficient for research in that it gave chances of collecting data which are of high quality. The inconsistencies and contradictions in this literature is that, the issue of nursing practices offered across the world has increasingly been considered the essential component of the healthcare treatment plan; A possible explanations for inconsistencies has been put in place and the nursing practices practitioners have been encouraged so as to acquire an evidence-based orientation that is encouraged in all areas of healthcare. The study carried out shown that, not all nurses get adequate practical knowledge on nursing when undertaking their courses. This has been the most challenge to the states given that a number of patients get treated with nurses who are not fully trained in their career. The conceptual analysis and empirical study of concern in most cases helps nurses in developing the clarity as well as the consensus concerning the patients’ good care (Melnyk & Overholt, 2005).
Conversely, the evidence tends not to provide strong support for a change in practice and more researches are highly required to help in addressing the research questions identified. It is noted that evidences and researches carried out does not fully provide a stronger support for changes in practice, and it is therefore, a requisite for the state to find better ways of solving the stated research problems to address the publics’ inquiry (Davies, 2011). Further research on the other hand will help in sampling various information from different locations on how to manage problems given that further researches tend to limit the risks of collecting information that are inaccurate. Data should be collected from different areas to increase chances of collecting good data. Further knowledge is needed about the effects of inadequate practical skills in nursing as well as how those problems may tend to affect the society (James, 2012). Lastly, the states should therefore make sure nurses get adequate practical knowledge on nursing courses.
