Applying Evidence From Research Reports (graded)
Consider a policy or procedure at your facility that you believe may be not following best practices. Search for at least two research reports (preferably systematic reviews) that address the policy or procedure. Cite your sources. After reading the results sections of the reports, would you recommend to keep or change your current policy or procedure? Defend your decision based on the strength of the evidence.
For this question you will need to look at a policy and/or procedure that is in your own workplace that is not seen as a best practice. This can be something that is either written down in your policy and procedures manuals OR it can be something that is commonly done by a lot of individuals (but not an actual policy).
Once you have described this to us, you will need to share at least 2 different research reports that directly pertain to the policy/procedure you are addressing. Then tell us whether you would recommend a change, based on the findings of the research report…or keep the current policy/procedure in place.
With this question, you will need to be sure to fully elaborate. By that I mean your response will need to be at least 2-3 full paragrap
