2. Using defined quality outcomes and/or patient safety measures, describe the health care entity’s successes and failures. Include identified criteria and data that demonstrate why this entity is successful and in what areas.
3. Using the quality outcomes data, identify a quality or safety area that nursing science can impact. Describe the specific variables.
4. Identify potential obstacles (such as economics or ethical issues) that may hinder the implementation of the quality or safety measure.
Identify those groups or leadership roles within the entity with whom you may need to collaborate.
