Nursing Practice’s Role in Health Care

QUESTION

I need between 100-120 words for each assignment, and I want individual references with each response. Please, no plagiarized work

Module 1

DQ 1  Outcome measures are significant in showing the worth of the Doctor of Nursing Practice’s role in health care. Identify a practice-level outcome study or project and describe the expectation of its effect on health care. Which outcome measure do you think aligns with your DPI project (Quality Improvement Project)? Why? Provide examples and literature support.

DQ 2  In this week’s readings, theories of accident causation, human error, foresight, resilience, and system migration were discussed. Identify a safety theory and propose quality measures to improve patient safety. Which theory or framework are you using to guide your DPI Project’s intervention and outcome? Please define what constructs of your chosen DPI Project theory will help you change/improve clinical practice to improve a specific patient outcome? Provide examples and literature support.

Module 3

DQ 1   New health care delivery models are being presented to accommodate the shift in health care objectives. Many of these models are community-based and focused on improving quality outcomes, population health, and reducing readmissions to acute care settings.

2. How will you use a health care delivery model in the design of your project to support the sustainability of your practice improvement intervention? 

Provide examples and literature support.

DQ 2   Two major models of care exist: for-profit and not-for-profit. Does one or the other provide more ethical care? Why or why not? Provide examples and literature support.
