EXCELSIOR – NUR513 propose a plan to conduct research that addresses the gap in evidence
EXCELSIOR – NUR513 RESEARCH AND EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE
Module 7 Assignment
Phase IV: Translation/ Generation
This section is your recommendation, based on the results of the review of evidence. Did you find evidence that supports a practice change? Or did you find a gap in the evidence that points to the need for further research? Depending on the results of your search, you will either complete Option A) write a plan for an evidence-based practice proposal or Option B) propose a plan to conduct research that addresses the gap in evidence. The instructions for Option B are outlined below. This portion of the paper may be written from a first person point of view, as this is your plan for a change in practice. However, bear in mind that this is not an opinion paper, it is a recommendation based on evidence. As an evidence- based leader, you will use current, pertinent evidence to support your proposal and strategies for implementation. Please use the grading rubric to guide your work.
Option B: Research Proposal. To be used if evidence was not strong enough to support a change in practice and there is a need for further research. Please refer to Chapter 19 & 20 in your textbook for further guidance. Be sure to use current, pertinent literature to support your ideas.
You will add this portion of the paper to the revisions you made in Part I, submitting one document in Week 13, comprised of Part I (revised) and Part II. All references should be on one page, at the end of the entire document. The total length for Parts I & II should be 16- 20 pages (excluding title page and references).
Briefly summarize your recommendations based on the evidence, clearly identifying the gap in evidence. Explain why you think it is important to gain further evidence on this topic.
Present your research question and independent and dependent variables (if quantitative)
Identify a theoretical basis, and explain how the theory will guide the research. You may use a theory that applies directly to the specialty track you might want to pursue as a graduate student (education, informatics, leadership), or use a general nursing theory.

Identify a leadership style that resonates with you and explain how that style will be conducive to conducting this study as an evidence based leader.
Examine ethical considerations.
Describe the type of qualitative or quantitative research (e.g.: Grounded Theory, Quasi- experimental, etc.).
Explain why you chose this methodology for the study.
Describe the sample population.
