Why do you think many healthcare practitioners are often unwilling to change practice patterns, based on research findings? Some practitioners criticize evidence-based practice as;” cookbook care”; Considering these perceptions, how would you utilize your education and experiences in planning the implementation of a major change?
Consider the question: “Why do physicians and nurses kill more people than airline pilots?” Apply your critical thinking skills to this argument and critique the statement. First, do you think it’s true? If it is, what do you think about their rationale? How would you address it if the question were posed to you in a forum?
What kinds of extraneous variables (not cited in the studies) do you think could have affected the relationships between the independent variables and the dependent variables in both the Messina et al. and Coyne et al. studies?
How effectively do you think the Coyne et al. study and the Messina et al. study both used their review of the literature to help the reader understand why the research question was asked? How could they have done it more effectively?
