Write a 4-6 page annotated bibliography where you identify
peer-reviewed publications that promote the use of a selected technology
to enhance quality and safety standards in nursing.
Introduction
Before you begin to develop the assessment you are encouraged to
complete the Annotated Bibliography Formative Assessment. Completing
this activity will help you succeed with the assessment and counts
towards course engagement.
Rapid changes in information technology go hand-in-hand with
progress in quality health care delivery, nursing practice, and
interdisciplinary team collaboration. The following are only a few
examples of how the health care field uses technology to provide care to
patients across multiple settings:
Patient monitoring devices.
Robotics.
Electronic medical records.
Data management resources.
Ready access to current science.
Technology is essential to the advancement of the nursing
profession, maintaining quality care outcomes, patient safety, and
research.
This assessment will give you the opportunity to deepen your
knowledge of how technology can enhance quality and safety standards in
nursing. You will prepare an annotated bibliography on technology in
nursing. A well-prepared annotated bibliography is a comprehensive
commentary on the content of scholarly publications and other sources of
evidence about a selected nursing-related technology. A bibliography of
this type provides a vehicle for workplace discussion to address gaps
in nursing practice and to improve patient care outcomes. As nurses
become more accountable in their practice, they are being called upon to
expand their role of caregiver and advocate to include fostering
research and scholarship to advance nursing practice. An annotated
bibliography stimulates innovative thinking to find solutions and
approaches to effectively and efficiently address these issues.
Preparation
To successfully complete this assessment, perform the following preparatory activities:
Select a single direct or indirect patient care technology that is relevant to your current practice or of interest to you. Direct patient
care technologies require an interaction, or direct contact, between
the nurse and patient. Nurses use direct patient care technologies every
day when delivering care to patients. Electronic thermometers or pulse
oximeters are examples of direct patient care technologies. Indirect
patient care technologies, on the other hand, are those employed on
behalf of the patient. They do not require interaction, or direct
contact, between the nurse and patient. A handheld device for patient
documentation is an example of an indirect patient care technology.
Examples of topics to consider for your annotated bibliography include:
Delivery robots.
Electronic medication administration with barcoding.
Electronic clinical documentation with clinical decision support.
Patient sensor devices/wireless communication solutions.
Real-time location systems.
Telehealth.
Workflow management systems.
Conduct a library search using the various electronic databases available through the Capella University Library.
Consult the BSN Program Library Research Guide for help in identifying scholarly and/or authoritative sources.
Access the NHS Learner Success Lab, linked in the courseroom navigation menu, for additional resources.
Scan the search results related to your chosen technology.
Select four peer-reviewed publications focused on your selected topic that are the most interesting to you.
Evaluate the impact of patient care technologies on desired outcomes.
Analyze current evidence on the impact of a selected patient
care technology on patient safety, quality of care, and the
interdisciplinary team.
Integrate current evidence about the impact of a selected
patient care technology on patient safety, quality of care, and the
interdisciplinary team into a recommendation.
Notes
Publications may be research studies or review articles from a
professional source. Newspapers, magazines, and blogs are not considered
professional sources.
Your selections need to be current—within the last five years.
Annotated Bibliography
Prepare a 4–6 page annotated bibliography in which you identify and
describe at least four peer-reviewed publications that promote the use
of your selected technology to enhance quality and safety standards in
nursing. Be sure that your annotated bibliography includes all of the
following elements:
Introduction to the Selected Technology Topic
What is your rationale for selecting this particular technology topic? Why are you interested in this?
What research process did you employ?
Which databases did you use?
Which search terms did you use?
Note: In this section of your bibliography,
you may use first-person since you are asked to describe your rationale
for selecting the topic and the research strategies you employed. Use
third person in the rest of the bibliography, however.
Annotation Elements
For each resource, include the full reference followed by the annotation.
Explain the focus of the research or review article you chose.
Provide a summary overview of the publication.
According to this source, what is the impact of this technology on patient safety and quality of care?
According to this source, what is the relevance of this
technology to nursing practice and the work of the interdisciplinary
health care team?
Why did you select this publication to write about out of the
many possible options? In other words, make the case as to why this
resource is important for health care practitioners to read.
Summary of Recommendation
How would you tie together the key learnings from each of the four publications you examined?
What organizational factors influence the selection of a
technology in a health care setting? Consider such factors as
organizational policies, resources, culture/social norms, commitment,
training programs, and/or employee empowerment.
How would you justify the implementation and use of the
technology in a health care setting? This is the section where you will
justify (prove) that the implementation of the
patient care
technology is appropriate or not. The evidence should be cited from the
literature that was noted in the annotated bibliography.
Consider the impact of the technology on the health care
organization, patientcare/satisfaction, and interdisciplinary team
productivity, satisfaction, and retention.
Example Assessment: You may use the following to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like:
