Approximately 150-180 words APA format with references and in-text citations. Where in the World is Evidence-Based Practice? This paper addresses the main discussion post regarding evidence-based practice (EBP). EBP provides problem-solving to clinical practice that focuses on the best research, clinical expertise, and patient preferences or values (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2019, p. 8). It is imperative to implement EBP into clinical practice as it leads to high-quality nursing care and better patient outcomes. The purpose of this discussion post is to explore a healthcare organization website and determine if they are grounded in EBP. Description of Healthcare Organization The healthcare organization website that I reviewed was the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). EBP appears in the quality initiatives section of the CMS website. This section informs patients that CMS seeks information on how to transform clinician practices by changing practice behavior through evidence-based care to improve patient care and lower healthcare costs (CMS, 2018). CMS has quality improvement organizations dedicated to improving health quality. The mission of CMS quality improvement organizations is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and quality of services for Medicare patients (CMS, 2018). CMS has developed Core Measures, which provides EBP information on health care quality that allows physicians, clinicians, and patients to make informed decisions (CMS, 2017). Healthcare Organization Grounded in EBP Throughout the CMS quality initiatives website, there are indications that they are grounded in EBP to improve their patients care and outcomes. In our required reading, it was noted that the most critical reason for implementing EBP is to provide the highest level of care and the best patient outcomes (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2019, p. 12). CMS has also focused their aim on providing better care and better health at lower costs (CMS, 2018). In our required reading, it was also noted that research shows that EBP leads to a reduction in healthcare costs (Melnyk, Fineout-Overholt, Stillwell, &Williamson, 2010, p. 51). Changed Perception of the Healthcare Organization The information that I discovered on the CMS website has changed my perception of the organization by assuring me that they are using EBP to ensure that their patients receive the best possible care which improves patient care and outcomes (CMS, 2018). For example, both of my parents have Medicare coverage; it is comforting to know that they are receiving care based on evidence that has been shown to improve their care and outcomes. The aim at CMS is to provide better care at lower costs, which has also changed my perception (CMS, 2018). For example, both of my parents live on fixed incomes, so it is essential for them to receive quality healthcare coverage as well as prescription drug coverage at a lower cost.

You are a patient at seeing a Plastic Surgeon for a consultation. During your visit, the physician takes out his cell phone and takes several pictures of the areas for the surgery. During this process the physician explains that this will be a part of his before and after collection. Is there a problem with him using his personal cell phone and not a camera dedicated to the medical practice? Did you sign some disclaimer saying photos could be taken for non-medical purposes? How do you feel about what the physician did? Are there any violation(s)? If so, explain. How would you handle this situation? Create a 2-3 page paper to answer the questions in this case study.

An area of concern in healthcare today is the ability of individuals to access care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has developed many initiatives that tie reimbursement for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries to better quality of care and access to it. For your discussion board post, include the following: Discuss the barriers that patients experience when accessing health care resources. Why do barriers continue to exist when it comes to access and equal health care? Give an example of something a hospital could do to improve access to care for its community? Include 2 reference sources, besides the textbook, and be sure to document your references using APA format.
Instructions: The video below provides a first-person narrative of a young couples passion for the arts as they transform their community from an arts desert to an arts showcase providing a venue for activist musicians to find audiences they might never otherwise connect with. Please watch the video called Building Community through the arts which demonstrates how important every single individual can be in building a deep sense of community. In your initial post, please address the following: Why might musicians use their music to raise awareness and consciousness about different social issues? In your response please use at least one example (from the video, from your own community or from a different resource) in order to illustrate your points. Artists and musicians often choose to utilize public spaces. Why might a song, focused on a social justice issue, be more effective in public spaces rather than in a private home turned music venue? Do you think there would be fewer or more restrictions on the types of messages when presented in the public forum? Defend your position. Benoit and Elaine are powerful examples of community building. In a separate paragraph describe a venue you would create if given the chance. What form of the arts would you focus on (dance, music, reading poetry, etc.) and what themes, social justice issues, or community issues would you present at the grand opening? Explain your choice. Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
