Review this week’s Learning Resources on CDS systems, EBP, and clinical guidelines. Focus

Question Description

To prepare:

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources on CDS systems, EBP, and clinical guidelines. Focus on the Hammond, Jaffe, and Kush article, “Healthcare Standards Development: The Value of Nurturing Collaboration” and consider how CDS systems could be used to achieve integration of standards, guidelines, and EBP within your specialization area.
  • Identify at least two databases that can be considered “gold standards” for current research and EBP recommendations within your specialization area.
  • Identify at least two condition-specific clinical guidelines that are applicable to your specialization area. One possible resource for locating clinical guidelines is http://www.guidelines.gov
  • Consider how the databases and guidelines you identified could be integrated into a CDS system. For example, would you recommend an alert system, a side panel within an electronic health record (EHR) system, a separate computer or device for health care professionals to consult at their discretion, or an alternative system?
  • Reflect on the benefits and disadvantages of the type of CDS system you selected to integrate your EBP databases and clinical guidelines.

To complete:

Write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:

  • Identify the two databases you selected as “gold standards” for EBP within your specialization area. Justify your selections.
  • Identify the two condition-specific clinical guidelines you selected, and explain their significance within your specialization area.
  • Explain how the databases and guidelines you identified could be integrated into a CDS system. Describe the type of system you would recommend, and justify your recommendation.
  • Identify at least two benefits and at least two challenges of the CDS system you recommended.

Cite at least three references using APA style.
