For this Discussion, you will consider the various EBP models as well as the difference between EBP and clinical research.
- Reflect on the EBP models presented in the Learning Resources and their application in clinical practice.
- Recall the clinical practice problem you identified for Application #5, and consider which EBP model would best support investigating that problem.
- Also, contemplate the difference between the application of research in evidence-based practice and clinical research and the role of the DNP-prepared nurse in both.
By Day 3 post a cohesive response that addresses the following:
- Which EBP model would best support the exploration of the practice problem you utilized for Application #5? Include a brief summary of your practice problem and the rationale for your EBP model selection.
- Provide a summary of how evidence-based practice differs from clinical research, and include your perception of the role of DNP-prepared nurses in both.
