i need to give a positive feedback related to this research question.
For staff nurses in the primary care setting, does the implementation of safety culture reduce the risk of adverse events compared to no implementation of safety culture?”
Adverse events such as medication errors, falls, injury and faulty nursing interventions can be an issue in hospitals, especially for staff nurses with large nurse-to-patient ratios and a low number of employees. While most hospitals have safety standards, some nurses may neglect safety measures or fail to implement them due to not feeling a lack of urgency or importance for safety. Safety culture in nursing may help combat this as it involves the internalization of promoting safety in the ward and can reinforce the need for nurses to provide and implement safety measures.
In order to formulate my question, I utilized the PICOT formula for prevention which is: P-I-O-C or population, intervention, outcome and comparison or control. I used the one for prevention over the standard PICOT as I am focusing on an intervention of adverse event reduction compared to the remedy or treatment of an illness or problem. I selected staff nurses in primary care settings such as hospitals and medical centers as my population as they are at increased risk for adverse events and are larger in population compared to nurses in clinics and community health settings. I selected safety culture as my intervention as studies have increased on its implementation, but could still use more research to contribute to further findings.
Internet sources must be analyzed and documented the same as any other sources you utilize in the writing of a paper. Be careful that the material you are using is from a legitimate source; just because it is written does not make it true. No standard method for documenting Internet sources has emerged, but the citations should include the name of the author and title of the item the same information as any other source you might use. In addition, you must give the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or web address for the item you are using. Finally, give the date that the item was written. If that information is not available, list the date on which you accessed the page.
Plagiarism is the use of someone else’s ideas without giving proper acknowledgment. The term “plagiarism” includes, but is not limited to, the use, by paraphrase or direct quotation, of the published or unpublished work of another person without full and clear acknowledgment. It also includes the unacknowledged use of materials prepared by another person or agency engaged in the furnishing or selling of term papers or other academic materials.
The Modern Language Association’s MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers defines plagiarism as follows:
- repeating another’s sentences as your own,
- adopting a particularly apt phrase as your own,
- paraphrasing someone else’s argument as your own,
- presenting someone else’s line of thinking in the development of a thesis as though it were your own.
In short, to plagiarize is to give the impression that you have written or thought something that you have in fact borrowed from another.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
Please number the pages of your essay (except for the title page).
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
