Discussion Gaps in Practice

Discussion Gaps in Practice
Now that you have identified your practicum site, you will identify your practice problem and consider how the problem has been addressed in your organization and beyond. After identifying this practice problem, you will begin exploring the problem in the literature.
For this Discussion, consider the problem, and explore whether this is an issue only in your organization or an issue more broadly in healthcare. Consider how the issue is addressed in the literature, and examine how the issue is currently being addressed (or perhaps not addressed) by the management in your organization.

To Prepare
Review the Learning Resources provided in the module.
Connect with your preceptor, and consider a gap in practice you can explore for the duration of the course.
By Day 3 of Week 2
Post a response detailing your practice focused question. Describe the practice focused question that is an issue for your facility or organization. Gather evidence to support the issue, and consider the following:
Is the issue a common issue in healthcare or nursing practice, or is this issue specific to your organization or facility?
Is this issue addressed in the literature?
Has this issue been addressed by management to date? If so, how?
In your response, be sure to detail your issue, identify the practice gap, and provide evidence for support. You will use this response, and colleague responses, to help you prepare your practice focused question for final submission to Faculty.
