Technology is integral to successful implementation in many projects, through either support or integration or both. Name at least one technology that could improve the implementation process and the outcomes of your EBP project. Do you plan to use this technology? If not, what are the barriers that prevent its use?
Technology is in today’s society is used as a communication resource to provide quality care to our patients. For my capstone project, my main issue is nurse shortage and the intervention that is going to be provided is to promote self-scheduling to decrease call outs. We will first negotiate on paper the days we want to work and negotiate with the rest of the staff for the days that are needed. How technology plays a role with my project is the self-scheduling part. Nurses have their own account that connects to the system for our facility. Once a nurse puts in their desired schedule, this will go over to the managers and they can determine the final schedule from there. Technology supports my project because the first reason we are able to visually see the schedule that each nurse signed up for and this determines the days that need to be covered. This way we can cover the short days. The second reason is it is a communication based system where the manager can overview the whole schedule and the staffing can determine the nurses that are scheduled to work that day. Staffing is also able to view other nurses that are available in case there is a call out. Having this organization will improve the outcome for my evidence based practice project. This method is vital to get our work done. It is optional to put the schedule in but if the schedule isn’t put in, the manager has the right to put the nurses where they need them. The only barriers is outside communication. If a day is short and a nurse is available to work that shift but isn’t there this may hinder the process or if it isn’t turned in to the manager on time they will make the schedule.

Development and implementation of a debriefing model for clinical use is the focus of my capstone project. Implementation of a new program requires training of staff on how to perform debriefing immediately after critical events. Debriefing facilitators will need to be educated on the use of the tool and communication skills necessary to address psychological as well as the educational needs of participants. The simulation laboratory is a technology that could be very useful in training facilitators in both code blue skills and the debriefing process. Our simulation laboratory has mannequins that provide feedback on CPR quality as well as the ability to intubate and defibrillate. Debriefing training can be given after code simulation to provide a real-world feel and role model behavior for both the facilitator and the team. Barriers to use of this technology have been reluctance by staff members to role play in this environment. We have been using this approach for learning for years now and it is well accepted by the staff, it’s that Physicians that might object.
The use of this type of learning incorporates knowledge, skills, values, and communication into the learning experience and allows the learner to “practice” skills in a controlled environment. Briefing the team, running a mock code, and practicing debriefing afterward would be a good training exercise and may meet standards for ongoing education as well. I hope to use this technology and by partnering with the Code Blue Committee and Nursing Education department this type of training may become a reality.
