Milestone 1: Practice Issue and Evidence Summary Guidelines
Clear identification of the practice
issue is the first step in evidence-based nursing. Next, the evidence is
reviewed to determine the best intervention to change practice outcomes.
Completion of the milestone will include identification of the practice issue
using the ACE Star Model of Knowledge Transformation and a review of the
evidence that will support an intervention that will change outcomes. The
evidence summary will be conducted through the ‘breaking down’ of a systematic
review on your topic for your change project.
This assignment enables the student
to meet the following course outcomes:
CO4: Develops and outlines a scientific, systematic decision-making
process to integrate critical thinking with clinical judgment to assure safe
