identify a practice problem based on an organizational needs assessment
The purpose of this assignment is to identify a practice problem based on an organizational needs assessment, including the identification of the practice gap and formulation of the practice question. This assignment will allow for the assimilation of professional leadership competencies in project management as a DNP-prepared nurse. Assignment content supports professional formation, communication, and dissemination skills relevant to the DNP-prepared nurse.
Complete the Organizational Needs Assessment: Practice Gap Identification on a healthcare organization of your choice. This will be summitted as Table 1.

Include the following in your paper:
Introduce the topic and establish the importance of an organizational needs assessment.
Present a clear purpose statement.
Create an organizing statement for the paper that matches the Level 1 headings (except for listing the conclusion).
Problem: Using the information that you gathered on the Organizational Needs Assessment: Practice Gap Identification (Table 1), describe the practice problem by explaining these elements:
Describe a specific location (hospital unit, community health clinic, surgical suite, primary care practice).
Identify the key stakeholders (decision-makers).
Relate the practice problem identified by the stakeholders.
In 1-2 organized paragraphs, summarize the Organizational Needs Assessment: Practice Gap Identification (Table 1).
Practice Question: Define and briefly explain the project’s intended population, evidence-based intervention, and measurable outcomes (PICOT):
Population: Describe the specific characteristics of the population.
Intervention: Based on the evidence in the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool (Table 2) gathered in previous courses, describe evidence for an evidence-based intervention. Add one research study or systematic review to support your intervention.
Comparison: State as “compared to current practice” for the purposes of this assignment.
Outcome. Create and explain specific outcome measurements based on the current evidence you have collected in the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool (attach as Table 2). Add one research study or systematic review that supports your proposed outcome measurements. The source added can be the same one used to add evidence to the intervention above as long as it speaks to measurable outcomes. The source added can be the same one used to add evidence to the intervention above as long as it speaks to measurable outcomes.
Time: Time frame for the project implementation.
State the Practice Question. Example: (P) For critical care patients in X hospital’s ICU, (I) does the implementation of the medical sepsis protocol (C) compared to the current practice (O) reduce the incidence of medical sepsis diagnoses as measured before and after the intervention (T) over a 10-week period?
Recap the paper’s purpose statement and organizing statement criteria.
Draw major conclusions from the body of your paper.
Summarize the importance of effective communication competencies for the DNP-prepared nurse.
