- Does the chosen theory apply to the stated issue or concern presented?
Hi! I strongly agree with you on the chosen theory. It is for sure that it serves as a framework for a nurse practitioner to address patients’ related issues and thus provide centered and quality care. Additionally, the application of evidence-based practice theory, stetler’s model, delivers better outcomes for patients, which minimizes the demand or the need for medical resources. Thus, healthcare providers can cut on major costs (Smith, 2019).
- Is the presentation clear and easy to follow?
In my view, the presentation was very easy and clear to follow because it formed a medical question that addressed the issue, gathered the necessary evidence, analyze the best evidence, applied the researched evidence in the nursing practice, and evaluated the outcomes.
- Did the presentation provide sufficient evidence to support the presenter’s recommendations?
Yes, it did. The presentation provided sufficient evidence that helped the nurses make well-founded and informed decisions.
- Is there an alternate theory that you would suggest for the issue or concern?
In my view, the “theory of interpersonal relation” by Hildegard Peplau can be used to address the issue since it emphasizes nurse-patient relation as the vital key for patient recovery.
- Does the presentation add to nursing knowledge?
It adds a lot to the nursing skills and knowledge. Nurses can evaluate research and get better insights on the risks or effectiveness of a treatment or a diagnostic test. According to Brandão et al. (2019), nurse professions can effectively incorporate theoretical knowledge and evidence-based evidence to make plans, evaluate those plans, and implement the best approaches and strategies to provide better patient outcomes. It can also be used to address the challenges associated with technology in the nursing profession.
- What applications do you see for the content of this presentation to your practice as an NP?
Through the presentation’s content, the application of evidence-based practice helps the nurse profession include their patients when making their plans, thus allowing the patient’s proactive involvement in their nursing practices.
