Consider the role of the nurse as an interdisciplinary team member in completing research and using research findings to inform health care practices.
Using insights gained from visiting the Women’s Health Initiative retrieved from http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/whi/ and by reading the article on collaborative strategies by Engelke and Marshburn (2006):
- Discuss the role of the advanced practice nurse as an interdisciplinary research collaborator and member of the interdisciplinary team obligated to co-participate in the implementation and use of evidence-based practice.
- End your discussion by providing an example of an evidence-based change that would require the collaborative efforts of nursing and at least two other health care disciplines and that would lead to quality improvement in healthcare.
- Provide at least three citations with full references to credible nursing scholarly articles supporting your definitions and discussion.
