In 750-1,000 words, develop an evaluation plan to be included in your final evidence-based practice project proposal. You will use the evaluation plan in the Topic 8 assignment, during which you will synthesize the various aspects of your project into a final paper detailing your evidence-based practice project proposal.

Provide the following criteria in the evaluation, making sure it is comprehensive and concise:

  1. Discuss the expected outcomes for your evidence-based practice project proposal.
  2. Review the various data collection tools associated with your selected research design and select one data collection tool that would be effective for your research design. Explain how this tool is valid, reliable, and applicable.
  3. Select a statistical test for your project and explain why it is best suited for the tool you choose.
  4. Describe what methods you will apply to your data collection tool and how the outcomes will be measured and evaluated based on the tool you selected.
  5. Propose strategies that will be taken if outcomes do not provide positive or expected results.
  6. Describe the plans to maintain, extend, revise, and discontinue a proposed solution after implementation.

Complete your PICOT using your approved proposed nursing practice problem. If they were approved, you may use the population and intervention developed in your Topic 1 assignment. Include any necessary revisions in this submission. Refer to the “Example PICOT” below as needed for guidance on how to complete the PICOT.

PICOT Question 
PPopulationPatients experiencing decreasing satisfaction levels at ED
IInterventionReal-time location systems
CComparisonManually entered status updates to track patients
OOutcomeDecreased rate of Left Without Being Treated (LWBT) and raising revenue collection
TTimeframeSix months
PICOT Create a complete PICOT statement.ED patients with decreasing levels of satisfaction (P), does the utilization of a real-time location systems (RTLS) in the hospital’s ED (I), compared to manually entered status updates to track patients (C), help to decrease the rate of LWBT and to raise revenue collection (O) within 6 months (T)? 
Problem Statement Create a problem statement for your PICOT. You will use this problem statement throughout your final written paper.  The current delays, long waits, leaving without being treated, decreased revenue collection from the ED unit, and reduced patient satisfaction scores have negatively portrayed the hospital’s reputation to the public. As a result, the daily patient visits have continued to decrease as people attribute the facility to poor emergency care services delivery. All these complications result from the use of combined data resources and manual entry status updates when tracking patient records. This manual tracking cannot meet the demand for many patients and leads to overcrowding due to and reduced patient flow in the ED. Therefore, there is a need to install an automatic patient tracking system to increase the flow.
