Your title here
This paragraph(s) is to introduce the paper. State the
problem and potential solutions backed by evidence. Briefly, introduce the
nursing focused plan. Remember this is a scholarly APA assignment so you cannot
use first person. Remember also that you will keep all the bolded headings and
just remove the non-bolded content when you start your paper.
Change Model Overview
In this first paragraph, provide an overview of the ACE Star
model Evidence-Based Practice Process. Feel free to state why nurses should use
this model as a guide to facilitate change. Under each of the second level
headers listed below, you now link your identified topic to the ACE Star model
EBP Process.
Define the Scope of the EBP
Restate your practice issue. Why is this a problem? Give
basic statistics and information to back the scope of the problem at your
facility/work area. How does this problem impact healthcare on a broader scale?
Stakeholders
You will be the leader of the team since this is your
project. Who will you also include in your team? Make sure you choose relevant
stakeholders. You should have no more than eight members. Do not list your team
members by name but instead by position (pharmacists, charge nurse, etc.).
Determine Responsibility of Team Members
Why are the members chosen important to your project? What
are their roles?
Evidence
Conduct internal/external search for evidence. What type of
evidence did you find in addition to you Evidence Summary? EBP guidelines?
Quality improvement data? Position statements? Clinical Practice
Guidelines? Briefly discuss the strength
of this research. This is not where you describe the results of your studies.
This is done in the following steps.
Summarize the Evidence
In this section, you need to synthesize the information from
the systematic review article. What are some of the evidence-based interventions
you discovered in your Evidence Summary that do you plan to use?Be sure and
cite all of your references, in proper APA format, from any and all articles
into this one paragraph.
Develop Recommendations for ChangeBased on Evidence
What is your recommendation based on the research? Ideally,
you will have found enough support in your evidence to proceed with
implementing your pilot program.
Translation
Action Plan
You have not implemented your project yet, therefore, this
section will be hypothetical. Develop your plan for implementation. What are
the specific steps you will take to implement your pilot study? What is the timeline for your plan? Make sure
you include a plan for evaluation of outcomes and method to report the results.

Process, Outcomes Evaluation and Reporting
What are the desired outcomes? How will they be measured?
How will you report the results to the key stakeholders?
Identify Next Steps
How will you implement the plan on a larger scale? Will this
be applicable to other units or the facility as a whole? What will you do to
ensure that the implementation becomes permanent?
Disseminate Findings
How will you communicate your findings internally (within
your organization) and externally (to others outside of your organization)?
Conclusion
Provide a clear and concise summary. Review the key aspects
of the problem as well as the change model. Be sure to include important
aspects of the five points of the ACE Star change model EBP process and ways to
maintain the change plan.
