Patient safety and Nursing Concerns working 12 hours shift Vs 8 hour

Using Health Information Technology as a Source of Evidence-Based Practice Before the digital revolution, health information technology supplied very limited support for evidence-based practice.
If nurses wanted to be informed about cutting-edge research, their best bet was to either subscribe to leading journals or make periodic trips to the library. With the establishment of research
databases, however, nurses became empowered to learn about and facilitate interdisciplinary and translational research. Databases are just one example of how health information technology supports
evidence-based practice. To prepare: Read the following scenario from the text (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2011, p. 482): Twelve-hour shifts are problematic for patient and nurse safety, and yet
hospitals continue to keep the 12-hour shift schedule. In 2004, the Institute of Medicine (Board on Health Care Services & Institute of Medicine, 2004) published a report that referred to studies
as early as 1988 that discussed the negative effects of rotating shifts on intervention accuracy. Workers with 12-hour shifts realized more fatigue than workers on 8-hour shifts. In another study
done in Turkey by Ilhan, Durukan, Aras, Turkcuoglu, and Aygun (2006), factors relating to increased risk for injury were age of 24 or less, less than 4 years of nursing experience, working in the
surgical intensive care units, and working for more than 8 hours.
Consider how the resources identified in the scenario above could influence an organization’s practice.
Select an issue in your practice that is of concern to you. Using health information technology, locate at least three evidence-based practice resources that address your concern and that could
possibly inform further action. By Day 3 Post a description of your practice concern. Outline how you used health information technology to locate evidence-based practices that address this
concern. Cite and include insights from the resources. Analyze how health information technology supports evidence-based practice.
