Nursing:EBP Project Evaluation Criteria

EBP Project Evaluation Criteria
Intro/clinical problem: Often, pts with CKD suffer from complications as a result of their disease, coremobidities, and treatments for the diseases, inclusing Dialysis/Hemodialsyis. We found that focusing on the coremobidities such as Hyperlipidemia, HTN, DM, and obesity would in term reduce the amount and severity of complications experienced from Dialysis.
PICO question: Would nursing care/intervention/education towards patients with CKD going through hemodialysis decrease the amount/severity of the complications/severities experienced post Hemodialysis ?
Population: Patients with CKD
Intervention: Patient teaching and education / referals including support and follow up, nutritional consult, interdisciplinary team, multidisciplinary approach
Comparison: Patient having education and teaching vs Patients without guidance /teaching/ education/ support group
Outcome: Improve wirght status; improve self esteem, longevity, quislity of life; pt has better repsonse to treatment ( Dialysis /hemodialysis), less dialysis treatment due to life style changes, less overall complications related to CKD treatment.

Purpose Aim: We want to compare the effectiveness with education, support group etc vs patients who are not receiving education
The betterment of the pt and families quality of life because families are included in the patients emotional support, physical support
