The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
A Review on How to Access and Implement AHRQ’s Evidence-Based Resources to Inform your Clinical Practice
Presenter: Sharon T. Constans, RN, MSN, Director, Hayes CARE and Managing Editor, Search & Summary, Hayes, Inc.
Nurse practitioners (NPs) and other advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are leading providers of health care services in the United States and will play an increasingly prominent role in patient care as access expands. NPs can play an important role in promoting evidence-based preventive health practices by, for example, incorporating recommendations from the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) into clinical practice. AHRQ has incorporated USPSTF recommendations into the Electronic Preventive Services Selector (ePSS), which is a user-friendly evidence-based decision support tool designed for mobile technology. In addition, AHRQ has a number of other resources, such as the Effective Health Care (EHC) Program, which are designed to provide clinicians with current evidence on a wide variety of tests and treatments.
The purpose of this Webinar is to provide an overview of AHRQs evidence-based publicly available tools and resources to inform clinical practice.

Target Audience: Advanced Practice Registered Nurses
Overall Learning Purpose/Goal:
This webinar aims to promote the value of, and inform participants about, the AHRQ evidence-based resources available to NPs, including the Electronic Preventive Services Selector (ePSS) tool and Effective Health Care (EHC) Program resources, and to offer participants techniques to use these resources in their daily practice to support clinical decisionmaking and to improve quality of care.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Describe the 5 major steps in conducting a systematic review.
List the evidence-based resources available on the AHRQ Web site, including those available through the EHC Program.
Locate the resources available on the USPSTF Web site, including the ePSS tool.
Explain how the EHC Program resources, the USPSTF recommendations, and the ePSS tool can be integrated into APRN clinical decisionmaking.
Demonstrate how to download the ePSS application to a PDA or mobile device.
This program was planned in accordance with AANP CE Standards and Policies and AANP Commercial Support Standards.

Introduction to topic Paper
This assignment is the first step in completing the final paper on a researchable topic in either nursing practice or nursing education. You will use this topic to guide the ethics topic assignment in Unit 3, the literature review in Unit 4 and the completed paper in Unit 6. . The purpose of the paper is to explore a clinical evidence based practice and/or best practices in nursing education. This paper will be completed in three steps: Step 1, the question you seek to answer; Step 2: A literature review; and Step 3: A final synthesis and analysis of what you discovered and areas open for further research. Please use AHRQ , an organizational evidence-based standard and/or applicable education Best Practice to guide your topic development. The introduction gives some history of the topic, the reason is important to nursing practice and/or nursing education, and the conclusion summarizes the first two parts and then provides a brief introduction to the next section, the literature review.
This assignment requires proper APA format. This includes a title page, reference page, and proper headings. An abstract will only be included in your final paper. Write a 2-3-page paper (not including title page and reference page) addressing the following:
Background of a clinical practice problem or educational problem related to your practice. The PICO(T) format is used to organize research evidence to address clinical problems. You will use the PICO(T) question to identify relevant studies needed to develop evidenced based practice or best practices in nursing education.
Ethical considerations for Research topic investigation
This assignment requires proper APA format. This includes a title page, reference page, and proper headings. An abstract is not required. Write a 3-4 page paper (in addition to the title page and reference page) addressing the following:
Ethical considerations for the topic selected in Unit 1
Headings to include:
Best practices and/or evidence-based practice
Address HIPAA and/or FERPA concerns
Informed Consent components.
Conclusion – this section should also incorporate principles and concepts from the Belmont Report that apply to your topic of study.
This is Part 2 of your topic development – The Literature Review for the research question you identified in Week 1.
This assignment requires proper APA format. This includes a title page, reference page, and proper headings. An abstract will only be included in your final paper. Write a 4-5-page paper (in addition to the title page and reference page) for your literature review:
Select appropriate sources of evidence to support your research topic and compose a literature review supporting your proposal. Include a discussion regarding your investigation and search for the literature to gain knowledge related to your proposal. Please use appropriate headings. Sources are to be within 3-5 years unless the study was the “Mother of all Studies.” This means the earlier study precipitated all the research that followed. If you should use an historical study, be sure to include how the subsequent research supported the original study and/or negated the findings creating evidence that initiated a change in practice or beliefs.
Final Paper – Research proposal development
This is the last written assignment for your research proposal. Please review previous assignments and make revisions as indicated by feedback provided. The previous assignments, discussion boards, and identification of evidence based clinical practice or best educational practive were necessary for you to start the process of developing a proposal for a research proposal. You are not conducting original research; you will only be developing a proposal for future research. You identified a model to promote EBP clinical research and/or Best practices in nursing education in last week’s discussion board. Please use model to organize your final proposal. In addition, integrate the Part 1 PICO(T) paper, Part 2 Literature review and this Part 3 to synthesize your findings and draw conclusions. Include in Part 3 how you might apply for funding for this project. Please use the Proposal paper outline provided for you during the first week as a guide for your paper.
This assignment requires proper APA format. This includes a title page, reference page, and proper headings. An abstract is required for this final proposal. The Final EBPG proposal requires 15-20 pages in addition to the title page, abstract page, and reference page.
Selection of Research Topic
Please choose a research topic to investigate from the list provided. If you are enrolled in the FNP concentration choose from the list of clinical topics. If you are enrolled in the Nurse Educator concentration choose from the list of education topics. Personal choice topics will not be entertained as these areas for research follow the guidelines of the agencies that develop accreditation and certification criteria.
Once you have selected your topic. Write 2-3 paragraphs supporting the rationale for your choice and how you will develop this topic. Using the PICO(T) format construct one quantitative question and one qualitative question setting the stage for developing your research investigation. Include a discussion on which research methodology you feel would be most appropriate for your investigation.
