The Institute of Medicine set a goal that 90% of health care decisions should be evidence-based by 2020. At best guess, less than 10% of decisions use the best evidence. Bridging the gap between research, findings, and practical implementation is one strategy to meet this important goal. This assignment will help you to find gaps that may be used for your project.
Review the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) website to complete the assignment.
Use at least two additional scholarly research sources published within the last 5 years. Provide citations and references for all sources used.
Select a practice from the AHRQ comparative effectiveness research site (TEAMSTEPPS and Burnout) and write a paper that looks at a gap that exists between research findings and the implementation of those findings in practice. Include the following:
*Discuss the TEAMSTEPS as a communication tool and elaborate on how it can prevent nurse burnout
*Assess to what extent TeamSTEPPS is being implemented.
*Evaluate the barriers to implementation into practice.
*Propose ways to overcome the barriers.
*Discuss the resources available on the AHRQ site to inform translation.
