Formulation of a PICO question and online defence of that question.
Is the NHS Otoacoustic emission hearing screening (I) for newborn babies (p), more accurate in diagnosing hearing loss(o), compared with the Health visitor distraction test(c).
The assignment aim is to formulate a PICO question, discuss and demonstrate the skills, in formulating evidence based practice (EBP) questions, using the PICO framework and defence of that question.
The question above was formulated by the student utilising the PICO framework by (Sackett et al. 1997), which focused my enquiries, PICO is a mnemonic used to describe the four elements of a good clinical foreground question P for population, I for Intervention C for comparison, and O for outcome, as devised by (Sackett et al. 1997). According to Sackett et al. (1997) the process of enquiry occurring within practice, stimulates questioning and these enquiries can be posed as (EBP) questions.
The inspiration for the (EBP) question was, based on practice experience, when clients asked how effective the Otoacoustic emissions test (OAE) method recommended by (United Kingdom. National Screening Committee, 2006) (UK NSC 2006), and how it compared with the, Health visitors distraction test (HVDT) (Great Britain. National Health Service patient choices, 2011).
I became aware of a gap in my knowledge (Lai, 2009) proposes the ability to recognise issues in practice settings and translate into explicit questions to fill knowledge gaps, is crucial to undergraduate and practice development, likewise Horsley, O’Neill and Campbell (2009) believe if a practitioner is ill-equipped, to give evidence based responses, to questions arising in practice setting from clients, reliable research exploration, is required to establish evidence based answers.

...Unit 3 Strategy Formulation Ronald Rogers MGT680-1303A-01: Strategic Management American Intercontinental University Synopsis Often a business, particularly a startup, has little to no choice in when to introduce a product or service. However, given the opportunity, market information, and competition data, managers should be able to make valid choices concerning the release time of that product. This paper addresses the advantages and disadvantages of first move or late move into a market. It also explains how and why companies have succeeded and failed in both theories. Part One: First Mover Theory First Mover Advantages (FMA) FMAs have a unique opportunity to create barriers to competition such as limited resources and patents. They may have a sustainable advantage in technology that is Intellectual Property (IP), R&D, Patents, and resources. They have a monopoly of sorts, however short term that it may be (Lieberman & Montgomery, 1988). Rapid expansion of market share with a new product is extremely likely. Introducing new products involves in-depth market research and a large investment of time and other resources. The results of the market penetration by a first mover can be difficult to overcome for subsequent entries. Setting the benchmark is an advantage that first movers can exploit. If they introduce a product that becomes a high demand item, establish the brand name and provide good service, then they set the bar really high for late...

Question

...Week 2 DQ 1 How does knowledge of the foundations and history of nursing provide a context in which to understand current practice? Identify at least three trends in nursing practice from the "Nursing Timeline of Historical Events" media piece. How have these trends influenced your perspective of nursing practice?  Well for the beginning question on the foundations and history, for me personally I am very grateful for the men and women who pioneered nursing, without them nursing would not be what it is now, and there continues to be lots of changes in nursing that is why it is so important to continue learning. We are the future of nursing and will be pioneers to the nurses that follow us after we are long gone. This foundation and history that previous nurses have left us with helps me with how I care for my patients, from planning, organizing, educating, and discharge and beyond because of them. Now I understand where they came from. There is so much context in nursing it’s difficult to pick one topic. Lecture 2 (2011). For the second question, on the three trends; the first one for me that I identified with was Mary Eliza Mahoney, and how she helped minority nurses in this field, I also was the only nurse out of 4 to graduate from my LPN program, and talk about discrimination, WOW! There was lots of it and lots of segregation in a cliques which still continues on to this day, it’s like I have to work harder than others to prove myself, so yes I understand that aspect...
