The purpose of the graduate project is to identify a clinical problem, analyze the problem, and propose an evidence-based change to address the problem. Students will choose problems within their area of clinical specialty, thoroughly review and analyze the available literature/information, identify the current best practices and, using a change theory/evidence-based practice model, propose a change that would lead to improved quality and safety for patients. The student will include measureable outcomes to evaluate the practice change in the proposal. The proposal will be developed as a substantive, formal paper in addition to a professional poster design and power point presentation, which prepares the student to deliver a professional presentation appropriate to a number of settings (e.g. academic, practice, continuing education).
