Differentiating Between Quality Improvement, Evidence-based Practice, and Research Harris Health System, Houston, Texas Objectives Describe Quality Improvement (QI) Describe Evidence-based Practice (EBP) Describe Research in Nursing Differentiate between QI, EBP, and research in nursing harrishealth.org 2 The Methods for Clinical Inquiry consists of a 3-legged Stool: EBP, QI, & Research Quality Improvemen t (QI) Evidencebased Practice (EBP) Research Heges, C. (2009). Research, evidence-based practice, and quality improvement: The three-legged stool. Nursing Management, 40(4), 10-12. harrishealth.org 3 Why is it important to know the difference between EBP, QI, and Research? Selecting the correct methodology is important when

addressing a clinical question to improve nursing practice or patient outcomes. Organizations that exemplify excellence are able to identify sources of evidence (SOE) that demonstrate exemplary professional practice and application of new knowledge and innovation. (American Nurses Credentialing Center, 2014). harrishealth.org 4 How EBP, QI, & Research Contribute to Nursing Practice ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses: Provision 7 The nursing profession should engage in scholarly inquiry to identify, evaluate, refine, and expand the body of knowledge that forms the foundation of its discipline and practice. All nurses working alone or in collaboration with others can participate in the advancement of the profession through the development, evaluation, dissemination, & application of knowledge in practice. (American Nurses Association, current edition). harrishealth.org 5 Awareness of the differences in QI, EBP, & Research is important . harrishealth.org So nurses can appropriately explore the safest

and best practices for their patients and practice environment. So nurses can continually improve nursing practice and patient outcomes. So nurses are able to generate new knowledge. 6 Im y t i l Qua t n e m e v pro ility." b i s n o p e's res

n o y r e y is ev ming t i l a u Q s De d r a w d - W. E Q U A L I T Y What is Quality Improvement (QI)? Quality improvement (QI) consists of systematic and continuous actions that lead to measurable improvement in health care services and the health status of targeted patient groups.

I M P R O V E M E N T (Health Resources & Services Administration, 2016a) harrishealth.org 8 Purpose of QI To correct workflow processes To improve efficiencies To reduce variations To address clinical, administrative, or educational problems harrishealth.org 9 QI Processes: Models for Improvement PDSA

Control harrishealth.org Design Verify 10 QI Processes/Methodologies Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Six Sigma Total Quality Management (TQM) Quality Improvement harrishealth.org There are numerous types of QI designs with one ultimate goal: QUALITY IMPROVEMENT (or process improvement) 11 Q U

A L I T Y QI Methodologies Act Take action based on what learned. If change worked, incorporate the learning I M P R O V E M E N T Check Review the test, analyze the results, identify what you learned Plan recognize an opportunity and plan the change

Act Plan Check Do Do Test the change. Carry out a small scale study (Health Resources & Services Administration. 2016b) harrishealth.org 12 Q U A L I T Y PLAN Aim Statement - What is your goal? FORthis WHOM? WHEN will occur? WHAT HOW we much? striving

to Whoare is the target population (what is the timeline?) What is the specific, numeric improvement accomplish? I M P R O V E M E N T we wish to achieve harrishealth.org 13 Q U A L I T

Y I M P R O V E M E N T PLAN Aim Statement - What is your goal? Think S.M.A.R.T. - Ensure goals are Simple: Clear definition Measurable: Easy to measure Achievable: Can you influence it? Relevant: Is your goal meaningful to health system Timely: Can it be measured at a frequency that will allow the group to solve problems? Examples harrishealth.org We will decrease CAUTI rates by 20% by next quarter for critical care areas. By October 1, 2016 we will decrease nursing turnover by 30% for all cardiac areas. 14

Q U A L I T Y PLAN Cause Analysis - How did you identify the need for your project idea? What caused the need? Describe current process: This allows you to identify gaps in process and assist possible causes. I M P R O V E M E N T Use tools, such as flowcharts and fishbone diagrams. Flowchart

harrishealth.org Fishbone Diagram 15 Q U A L I T Y I M P R O V E M E N T PLAN Baseline Measure - What is the baseline measure of your goal? What is happening before you try your idea? You will not know the success of the change if you don't have a baseline measurement for comparison The data may address, time, people, space, cost, number of steps, adverse events, patient satisfaction, or nurse satisfaction

Data can be displayed via scorecards, run charts, etc. The data collected must be aligned with the measures listed in the aim statement. harrishealth.org 16 Q U A L I T Y I M P R O V E M E N T PLAN Solution Development - What is/are the proposed solution(s) to achieve your goal?

Flowcharts can also be useful here for detail future process. Implementation Planning - What is your detailed plan to implement the proposed solution(s)? harrishealth.org The details of this plan should include all aspects of the method to test the improvements what data will be collected, how frequently and who collects the data, detail timeline, and how results will be analyzed. Use Gantt charts to clearly articulate time line and status of project. 17 Q U A L I T Y I M P R O

V E M E N T DO Implement the Solution Communicate your plan. Conduct your pilot: implement the improvement. Collect and document the data Document problems, unexpected observations, lessons learned and knowledge gained. harrishealth.org 18 Q U A L I T Y I M P R O V E M E

N T CHECK (or STUDY) Evaluate the Result Describe how you will determine harrishealth.org that your idea makes an improvement. Did your implemented solution achieve the Aim Statement? 19 Q U A L I T Y I M P R O V E M E N T

ACT Follow-up Plan - What is your plan to ensure your improvement can be sustained over time? What lessons did you learn? Determine if the solution should be: Adopted: standardize the improvement Adapted: Repeat the pilot with modifications based on lesson harrishealth.org learned and cycle back to Do phase Abandoned: If the changes made to the process did not result in an improvement, consider lessons learned from the initial test, and return to the Plan phase Remember this is an improvement cycle! 20 e c n e d Evi e c i

t c a r P d e s a B E V I D E N C E B A S E D P R A C T I C E What is Evidence-Based Practice (EBP)? Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) is the "...conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best

evidence..." in making clinical practice and policy decisions (Sacket et al., 2000). EBP integrates clinical expertise with the best available external clinical research evidence and patients unique values and circumstances. harrishealth.org 22 E V I D E N C E B A S E D P R A C T I C E Evidence-based Practice

EBP is a problem-solving approach that integrates a systematic search for and critical appraisal of the most recent and relevant evidence to answer a burning clinical, educational, or administrative question. EBP integrates the best available evidence, clinical judgment, and patient preferences. (Melynk & Fineout-Overholt, 2005; Stetler, 2001; & Titler et al., 2001). harrishealth.org 23 E V I D E N C E What are the elements of EBP?

Question, Evidence, and Translation (PET). Phase 1: Practice Question Phase 2: Evidence Phase 3: Translation harrishealth.org 26 PET Process PRACTICE QUESTION: Step 1: Identify an EBP question Step 2: Define the scope of the practice question Step 3: Assign responsibility for leadership Step 4: Recruit an interprofessional team Step 5: Schedule a team conference EVIDENCE: Step 6: Conduct an internal and external search for evidence Step 7: Appraise all types of evidence Step 8: Summarize the evidence

Step 9: Rate the strength of the evidence Step 10: Develop recommendations for change in systems or processes of care based on the strength of the evidence harrishealth.org 27 PET Process (contd) TRANSLATION: Step 11: Determine the appropriateness and feasibility of translating recommendations into the specific practice setting Step 12: Create an action plan Step 13: Implement the change Step 14: Evaluate outcomes Step 15: Report the results of the preliminary evaluation to decision makers Step 16: Secure support from decision makes to implement the recommended change internally Step 17: Identify the next steps Step 18: Communicate the findings harrishealth.org 28 E V I D E N C E Phase 1: Practice Question Ask a focused clinical question using the

mnemonic: PICO B A S E D P R A C T I C E P = Patient population or problem. I = Intervention or treatment. C = Comparison, when warranted. O = Outcome desired (improve nursing practice or patient outcomes). harrishealth.org 29 E V I D E N C E B A S E

D P R A C T I C E Phase 2: Evidence There are various evidence pyramids or levels of evidence used by the scientific community. Iowa Model (also known as Translation Research Model) Highlights the importance of considering the entire healthcare system from the provider, to the patient, to the infrastructure, using research within these contexts to guide practice decisions. The Johns Hopkins EBP Model (JHEBPM) Provides a five-level system for grading the evidence. Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine Uses a numbering scheme ranging from 1a, homogenous systematic harrishealth.org reviews of randomized controlled trials, to 5, expert opinion. Can be useful when comparing articles with similar study designs. 30

E V I D E N C E B A S E D P R A C T I C E Phase 2: Evidence (contd) When reviewing evidence to support practice, the nurse should carefully consider the evidence. Since the quality of research is different based on its methodology and number of study designs in the literature, the rigor of evidence may vary. There can be value in all levels of evidence, but quality can vary in any study. harrishealth.org

31 E V I D E N C E Which level of evidence is this? B A S E D P R A C T I C E Level 1 Randomized Control Trial harrishealth.org 32 E V I

D E N C E B A S E D P R A C T I C E The Levels of Evidence (contd) Though finding research studies at Level I is preferred, evidence-based nursing may need to draw upon research designs lower in the evidence hierarchy (Levels II or III). Occasionally, nothing but case reports or even bench research may exist on a topic. When making evidence-based decisions for patient care, it is essential to select the strongest level research design available for the specific question of interest. harrishealth.org 33 E V

I D E N C E B A S E D P R A C T I C E Is it Best Practice or EBP? The terms best practice and evidence-based practice are sometimes used interchangeably, but the two are different. Best practice is a generic or general phrase for a process of infusing nursing practice with research-based knowledge. EBP (derived from evidence-based medicine) is a more formalized process of conscientiously, explicitly, and judiciously using current best evidence in making decisions about patient care. EBP means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research. (Sackett et al., 1996). harrishealth.org 34 E

V I D E N C E B A S E D P R A C T I C E Is it Best Practice or EBP? Best Practices are Nursing practices that are based on the best evidence available from nursing research. (The University of Iowa, 2013). Knowledge transfer of credible research evidence. (Thompson, Estabrooks, & Degner, 2006). The goal of best practices is to apply the most recent, relevant, and helpful nursing interventions, based on research, in real-life practice.

harrishealth.org 35 E V I D E N C E Phase 3: Translation - Questions to Consider B A S E D P R A C T I C E harrishealth.org Should we implement the practice recommendations? Would this change

likely improve outcomes? Would it improve overall operations? Can the evidence be translated in other ways (e.g., policy & procedure development)? 36 E V I D E N C E B A S E D P R A C T I C E Phase 3 Translation (contd)

Determine (with data collection and analysis), if the current or changed practice is achieving the best possible patient outcome. harrishealth.org 37 E V I D E N C E B A S E D P R A C T I C E Disseminate Project Findings Share information with potential users in the healthcare system so nursing practice

and patient outcomes can be improved in other settings. Internally: newsletters, town hall meetings, or other institutional meetings. Locally: professional nursing organization meetings. Nationally: professional nursing conference or poster. Publish: article in a peer-reviewed, professional journal. harrishealth.org 38 R h c r a e s e
