Final Project

Health Care Priority Issue

For our final project, we will examine how priority healthcare issues should be examined by nursing.  We will select a key healthcare priority issue and a population. You will find articles that describe nursing interventions designed to improve patient outcomes for your population and healthcare priority issue.  Finally, you will discuss why Quality Improvement is important for patients and then you will describe how nursing values can be used to help improve patient care. Write a 5-7 page APA style paper (excluding title page and reference page). No more than seven pages of content will be accepted. A minimum of five scholarly references will be required.

Access the Priority Areas for National Action: Transforming Health Quality and read Chapter 3: Priority Areas for Quality Improvement, pages 41-45.
